21st Annual Pollstar Awards Winners List

12:01 AM Thursday 2/18/10 |   |

The live music biz honored its own Feb. 17 at the 21st annual Pollstar Concert Industry Awards. See the complete list of winners after the jump.

There’s nothing like the Pollstar Concert Industry Awards, an annual affair where the folks that make it happen, including promoters, artist managers, booking agents and technical companies – are the stars of the evening. Add in an open bar and gourmet catering and you have a night to remember. That is, for everyone that can remember last night.

The winners are chosen by the folks that make the concert scene happen. It’s an insider’s look at which bands mattered in 2009, and which companies and individuals kept the concert biz a hummin’ throughout the year.

But before we begin, we’d like to thank this year’s awards host Kathleen Madigan for a job well done, as well as the folks at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live who graciously provided the venue for this year’s shindig.

Without any further delay, here are the winners of the 21st annual Pollstar Concert Industry Awards.
