From Shelley Lazar, Founder of SLO Ticketing, Dies at 69 – Variety:

Shelley Lazar, founder of SLO Ticketing and a pioneer of premium ticketing and VIP programs for artists including the Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney and The Who, died Sunday morning after a battle with cancer, a rep for her company confirmed. She was 69.

Affectionately known as “The Ticket Queen” — or “MFTQ,” as she was dubbed by none other than Keith Richards — Vanity Fair called Lazar “the mastermind behind rock royalty’s all-access passes.” She worked her way through the ranks with New York concert promoter Ron Delsener, Madison Square Garden and Bill Graham Presents before striking out on her own in 2002 with the San-Francisco based SLO VIP Ticket Services. Her company was acquired by Ticketmaster in 2008, with Lazar remaining as chief executive. […]

Paul McCartney often dedicated the song “San Francisco Bay Blues” to Shelley Lazar, when performing it during soundchecks or even during some concerts, like at the 2013 Outside Lands Festival in San Francisco

Fond fun memories of our lovely MF Ticket Queen, Shelley x
