Universal Music Group did not suffer substantial damages during a recent Universal Studios blaze, according to information confirmed Monday.
“We moved most of what was formerly stored there earlier this year to our other facilities,” a Universal Music representative told Digital Music News. “Of the small amount that was still there and awaiting to be moved, it had already been digitized so the music will still be around for many years.”
That is great news for music fans, especially given the priceless and massive catalog in question. Instead, the fire torched a broad number of attractions, including simulated Manhattan streets and part of the King Kong exhibit. It also affected a large video warehouse, though duplicates exist according to Universal Studios president and chief executive Ron Meyer.
