Solo Agency and Promoters was formed in 1986 to represent artists for their UK and international touring. The original client roster was founded on the early 80's success of Big Country, Paul Young, Alison Moyet and Howard Jones combined with the New York punk of Iggy Pop and The Ramones. Its first 'premier league' breakthrough was promoting David Bowie at Wembley Stadium in 1986, to be followed by the signing of Phil Collins and Genesis 2 years later.
Since then the business has expanded and moved with the times to include a portfolio of bands with a diversity of acts that now include Westlife, Boyzone , N*E*R*D , Simple Minds, Spandau Ballet and Celine Dion to name but a few.
Through our international links Solo are also European promoters for the very largest acts in history having organised tours for The Rolling Stones, U2 and Madonna and Lady Gaga breaking a few box office records along the way.
Forty years after the original Isle of Wight Music Festival. Solo brought a one day event to the Isle of Wight in 2002. The next few years saw Solo expand the event into a major fixture in the European festival scene spanning four days and attracting crowds of 55,000 people. The line-ups have brought the very best world class calibre headliners to the island including The Rolling Stones, Coldplay and The Police .
