Todd Confessore 1967-2019


Todd Confessore, of Smithtown, N.Y. long time stage manager and tour manager for many acts, passed away on Wednesday, February 6 at the age of 51.

The Italian New Yorker started out in the hard rock club scene of Long Island in the late 80’s. He networked with many in the live event industry during his career and was a very popular guy with all who ever worked with him.

Todd went on to work for the likes of Danger Danger, Trixter, Kiss, Stone Temple Pilots, Marilyn Manson to name a few, and for the past 10 years he was the Tour Manager for Night Ranger.

The following statement was issued today by Night Ranger members Jack Blades, Brad Gillis, Kelly Keagy, Keri Kelli and Eric Levy:

“It is with the heaviest of hearts that we acknowledge the passing of our dear friend and longtime tour manager, Todd Louis Confessore. We are stunned and saddened by this loss. Life just won’t be the same without our Todd as captain of the Night Ranger touring ship.”

“We send our prayers, love and light to Todd’s family and loved ones at this most difficult time. We are so grateful to have known this wonderful, tireless powerhouse of a man, and to have had the honor of working with him for so many years.

“Todd’s all-time favorite band always took the stage with the words: ‘Ladies and gentlemen…you wanted the best…. you got the best.’ In Todd, we had the best a band could ever ask for. We’ll never take the stage again without thinking of him and celebrating his life.”

“Rock on, brother Todd.”

Todd did not have a wife or children. He was born Friday, August 11th, 1967 and is survived by his sister Tina Kujawski, his father Louis Confessore and a road family that spans the universe.
