On December 1, 2015, Heather Parry took over as President of Live Nation Productions. Unlike the customary ones, she never had a loud announcement about her leadership at the giant concert promoter. Instead, she started her work right away. For just a couple of months after taking the helm, she worked with actor and director Colin Hanks on a documentary about the return of Eagles of Death Metal to Paris after the devastating 2015 Bataclan tragedy. The documentary got two nominations from the Critic’s Choice Awards, which only proves that music documentaries are also a serious craft.
At Live Nation Production, parry was able to bring her passion for music and his love for cinema. So far, all of the documentaries that she supervised and produced by Live Nation Production have been doing really well. In addition to the Eagles’ documentary, the concert promoter also released on Netflix Lady Gaga’s documentary titled Gaga: Five Foot Two. In addition, the team made a documentary about the story of Puff Daddy’s Bad Boy Records titled Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop.
Heather Parry’s leadership at Live Nation Productions also paved the way to some sensitive documentaries like the one titled Believer. It is about the story of Imagine Dragons’ Mormon lead singer Dan Reynolds and Neon Trees Mormon lead singer, Tyler Glenn who openly revealed that he is gay. The documentary shows the struggle of the two artists to make a concert that would bring together their Mormon faith and the LGBTQ youth.
Another monumental achievement of Live Nation Productions under Heather Parry’s leadership was the opportunity to produce the remake of the 1937 romantic musical movie titled A Star Is Born. The film was directed by Bradley Cooper and starred Lady Gaga and Cooper himself.
The movie received various accolades and won best original song at the 91st Academy Awards. These are just some of the many documentaries that Heather Parry has produced under Live Nation. There might be more interesting documentaries coming since the team has already a long list in the pipeline.
