Every Show Has A Lawsuit
Bret Michaels has filed a $5-million lawsuit against a Syracuse, New York promoter for postponing a concert without his knowledge. According to the complaint, the Poison frontman was set to perform in Syracuse on August 5th. But when he and the crew showed up, there was no stage at the venue. The promoter, Michael Banks, claimed the show wasn't going to happen since Michaels scheduled an appearance on NBC's America's Got Talent that same night -- even though the show had been taped. The suit claims Banks breached their contract and exposed Michaels to public contempt and ridicule with defamatory statements about his schedule.
