Livia Tortella Exits WMG Warner Music Group Co-President/COO Livia Tortella has exited the company, according to reports from Billboard.biz and Variety. Her exit comes six months after Co-President/CEO Todd Moscowitz. No replacement for Tortella or Moscowitz has been announced yet. Rob Cavallo remains in place as Chairman of Warner Bros. Records, while Cameron Strang is Chairman/CEO for WBR and publishing arm Warner/Chappell.
Tortella and Strang confirmed her exit to staffers via internal emails, obtained by Billboard. In his note, Strang said that WB staffers who had reported to Tortella will now be under his oversight.
Tortella joined Warner Music in September of 2010.
Mumford & Sons Bassist To Undergo Surgery Mumford & Sons has been forced to cancel three sold-out shows this week in Dallas, TX, Woodlands, TX and New Orleans because bassist Ted Dwane is suffering from a blood clot on his brain. The band posted a statement on its website, which reads, "Our friend and bandmate Ted has been feeling unwell for a few days, and yesterday he was taken to a hospital to receive emergency treatment. The scans revealed a blood clot on the surface of his brain that requires an operation. Ted is receiving excellent care and we are being assured that he will recover quickly from surgery."
The band said that all dates will be rescheduled and tickets for this week's events will be honored at the rescheduled dates. The tour is expected to resume this Saturday at the Bonnaroo festival in Tennessee. The band said they have "no plans to cancel or postpone any other appearances along this current tour."
After Bonnaroo, Mumford only has three more U.S. shows before heading back to their native U.K. to play Glastonbury and a number of other festivals. They'll be back in North America for more touring in August and September.
