Jonathan Baden

Jonathan first stepped foot into the world of concert and special event production during the summer of 2001.  While working at Metropolitan Entertainment he was given the opportunity to work as a Production Assistant in the NY/NJ Metro Area, where he gained valuable experience working shows in venues like Madison Square Garden, Nassau Coliseum, Hammerstein Ballroom and many others.  From 2001 thru 2005, he continued to expand his knowledge of production and promoter responsibilities, which led to his hiring as a Production Mgr/Promoter Rep with AEG Live-NY.  In 2006, in addition to being responsible for regional AEG Live produced shows, Jonathan took on the added role as a Tour Promoter/Production Rep and has since been the Promoter Representative for many large AEG produced National/International tours.  In 2012 Jonathan was named AEG Live Director of Production for the Northeast and continues in this role today.

Jonathan has accumulated a vast amount of knowledge working shows in different venues all across the world - from professional sports stadiums to festival grounds, from theaters to arenas and many non-traditional locations as well.  In addition, he has gained significant experience working shows that have been filmed and produced for TV/Radio/Internet broadcast as well as live event productions for certain feature films.
