Dufine, who books both The Forum and Madison Square Garden, recalls that she snuck out of the house to see U2 with her boyfriend in Los Angeles in the early ’80s. Fast-forward, and in 2015 Dufine worked with Live Nation’s Arthur Fogel to present U2 for a combined 13 shows at the Garden and The Forum, grossing $29 million. Spampanato joined Dufine, Irving and Shelli Azoff, and MSG executive chairman James Dolan to reopen The Forum in January 2014 in order to bring it “back to where it was, as one of the storied rock’n’roll houses in the country,” he says.
