      2023 1h 42m Biography Documentary List
      Reviews In a career spanning almost sixty years, concert promoter and impresario Ron Delsener has been behind virtually every major contemporary music concert in New York City. From the Beatles at Forest Hills Tennis Stadium, to bringing David Bowie to Carnegie Hall and Patti Smith to the Palladium, to somehow convincing Simon and Garfunkel to come back together to play the biggest concert ever in Central Park, Ron Delsener was behind it all. RON DELSENER PRESENTS takes us behind-the-curtain through the last half century of the live music business, chronicling the tactics that drove live performance from disorganized, low-fi events to international tours, arenas, and, eventually, into a global empire.
