Dody Sirena and Cicão Chies of Brazil’s DC Set Group acquired a stake in Move Concerts Brazil
Move Concerts, one of the premier concert promoters in Latin America, and DC Set Group, a trailblazing entertainment company in the ‘80s and ‘90s in Brazil, have announced a partnership by which DC Set partners and co-presidents Dody Sirena and Cicão Chies acquired a stake in Move Concerts Brazil.
The two entertainment companies have a history of collaborations in the past and in recent years through co-promoted tours in Brazil featuring Faith No More in 1991 and, most recently Shakira in 2018. In the U.S., Move Concerts USA has promoted stateside shows by Brazilian icon Roberto Carlos, who is managed by DC Set Group.
Led by company founder and CEO Phil Rodriguez, Miami-based Move Concerts is the largest independent concert promoter in Latin America with offices in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Peru, and Puerto Rico. Throughout the past 40 years, Move Concerts has built the most extensive concert promotion network in Latin America.
«I have known Dody Sirena and Cicão Chies for a long time,” says Rodriguez. “Over the years we have worked together on some tours in Brazil and have been friends for decades. In 1991, I worked with Dody Sirena on Rock in Rio’s lineup. I have enormous respect for how they turned their company, DC Set, into a powerhouse that covers artist management, venue management, touring, publishing, and eSports. I am thrilled to welcome them to the Move Concerts family as they take a stake in Move Concerts Brazil and look forward to growing our Brazilian operation together.”
Founded in 1979 by Sirena and Chies in São Paulo, DC Set Group has promoted numerous international superstars in Brazil, including Michael Jackson, Van Halen, Luciano Pavarotti, Julio Iglesias, and Rod Stewart. With DC Set Group’s business structure divided into eight verticals, the firm’s partnership with Move is expected to attract more commercial and strategic strength and expand its growing market share.
“The partnership with Move Concerts is the result of many years of partnership, friendship, and respect,” says Sirena. “For the group, it is a privilege to announce this partnership at such an important moment, when major live events are being resumed. There is no doubt that it will be a very successful path.”
The companies will work on concerts and international sporting events initiatives under the Move Concerts Brazil brand.
