    About Glen

    Having worked with the act MUSE since 2001, Glen has toured the world countless times, worked with the band headlining Festivals, Arenas, TV shows, Radio shows & Super Massive one-off events. Glen has just come to the end of the 29-month award-winning “Drones” world tour which saw MUSE perform their high energy and technically advanced show to hundreds of thousands of fans across the world.

    In the 25 years that Glen has worked in the music industry, from playing drums in punk/grunge bands, to starting CATO music (one of London’s busiest rehearsal studio complexes) & now the founder of NEKO trust (a new charity to help young & talented people get jobs in the live events industry). Glen’s passion has always been the live industry…

    Live is where the most fun is, Live is where the money is, & Live is where you feel ALIVE!

    Glen’s first proper job in the live business was selling t-shirts for the Manic Street Preachers in 1994. From there, he went on to become the Manics’ drum tech before graduating to tour manager for them along with a host of other bands – The Thrills, Ronnie Wood, Ginger Baker, Hard-Fi, The Kooks, The Magic Numbers, Amy MacDonald, Gareth Gates, and so many more that have been lost in time. He has even production managed the Pope's only UK show…

    In recent years, Glen sold his business CATO music to Production Park & spent time as the Managing Director of the trail-blazing Backstage Academy University in Wakefield, helping over 200 students find their ways into the industry he loves.
