We wanted to update our readership with a development on the Gary Richards story we published earlier today. Gary has released the below statement about the news which broke hours ago. We wish nothing but the best to the father of HARD Events moving forward.
“To all the HARDfam & Shipfam:
I am leaving Live Nation after this week's Hard event to pursue an incredible new opportunity that I will share with everyone in the weeks to come.
Accordingly, I will not be attending or curating the next Holy Ship cruise event in 2018.
I have the utmost respect for Michael Rapino and Live Nation.
Let's make this week's 10th anniversary show the best HARD event ever!
Gary Richards AKA Destructo
