Harvey Goldsmith Entertainments remains the number one promoter in the UK and has continuing success with artists such as Barbara Streisand, Elton John, Pink Floyd, Prince, Rod Stewart, The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Woody Allen and his New Orleans Jazz Band, Bruce Springsteen, The Eagles, The Three Tenors, Sting and Paul Weller.
In 1985 Live Aid was turned into a £140 million fund-raising venture within ten weeks by Harvey Goldsmith and Bob Geldof. During the past ten years Harvey has used music as a successful means of fund-raising and more recently he has explored the world of opera. Luciano Pavarotti appeared in 1986 at Wembley Arena and agreed as part of the 30th Anniversary Celebrations in 1991 to perform a free concert in Hyde Park and in 1993 Pavarotti performed at Leeds Castle in Kent.
In 1992 The Tribute to Freddie Mercury to increase Aids awareness was a major television, as well as live, success and in the same year Harvey became Chairman of the first National Music Day which was instigated to promote the importance of music in the UK. 1,500 events took place – this project was conceived after a conversation between the former Arts Minister, Tim Renton and Mick Jagger. The National Music Festival is now in it’s fourth year and becoming more and more successful.
Under the auspices of The Prince of Wales and President Havel of the Czech Republic, Harvey was appointed Executive Producer of the Prague Heritage and Fund Gala Classical Concert, which featured Sir Georg Solti and Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, Murray Perahia and Gabriela Benackova and has been televised world-wide.
In 1993, Harvey was appointed Vice Chairman of the Prince’s Trust Management Board and Harvey has been the driving force behind the annual concert which focuses on the Trust’s achievements and has included Eric Clapton, Elton John, Tina Turner and Phil Collins.
Shows promoted in 1996 include Lord of the Dance, Sting, Sheryl Crow, Boy Zone, Bjorn Again and the Bootleg Beatles and in 1997 Cirque du Soleil which was the most successful run of any show at the Royal Albert Hall.
Harvey was honoured with a CBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List and has active involvement with various charities and organisations which include Chairman of the National Music Festival, Vice Chairman of The Prince’s Trust, Vice Chairman of REACT, Co-Chairman of President’s Club, Trustee of CST, Member of Communications Panel of The Red Cross, Board Member of the Prague Heritage Fund, Trustee of Band Aid, Board Member of the London Tourist Board, Vice President of the Music Users Council and Trustee of the Royal Opera House.
