|EXTENSIONS OF MAN CONCERTS
After its rise to immense success in the 1970s, Extensions of Man Concerts was fading out and the rise of Media Five’s Booking and Management Agencies were beginning. However, there were some very big news stories that were made because of Extensions of Man Concerts and the artists they were booking.
Some of the most notable concerts that Extensions of Man Concerts promoted include; Maynard Ferguson and Billy Joel, the later of the two received National media attention.
Following their successful effort to bring Billy Joel back to the Lehigh Valley after his single, “Allentown” was released at the end of 1982, Media Five’s creators realized that the booking and managing side of the music industry was what the company should be doing. Once the sold-out December 27th Billy Joel concert at Stabler Arena in Bethlehem was completed, Extensions of Man Concerts officially closed and Media Five began to expand its roster of bands that it represented.
