Ex-AEG chief Tim Leiweke returns to L.A. to form a live events venture

Ex-AEG chief Tim Leiweke returns to L.A. to form a live events venture

Former AEG Chief Executive Tim Leiweke is back in Los Angeles and plotting his next big move in the live events industry.

The 55-year-old executive, who made his mark on the downtown skyline with projects such as Staples Center and L.A. Live, spent the last two and a half years leading Toronto-based Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment. He was the public face of AEG during his 17-year career there before being ousted in a 2013 corporate shake-up.

Now he has returned to the Southland, where he's joined forces with a well-connected ally, longtime music industry power-player Irving Azoff.
