TORONTO, ON (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) —
Canadian promoter Keystone Entertainment Group Ltd. filed a $6 million suit against Aerosmith after the band cancelled a string of concerts during their 2009 North American tour.
The Canadian promoters at Keystone Entertainment allege that the musicians breached their contract by cancelling five concerts in Canada last August and failed to respond to requests to reschedule the dates.
The band was forced to scrap dates on their 2009 North American after frontman Steven Tyler broke his left shoulder falling from the stage at a gig in South Dakota.
The legal papers, filed in a Calgary court, claim bosses at Keystone reached out to Aerosmith last September in a bid to plan new concerts, but received no response.
The lawsuit alleges the company lost money and seeks $6 million in damages for lost ticket sales and profits for the five concerts, according to the Toronto Sun.
Aerosmith kick off a European tour today in Sweden, before embarking on a series of North American shows, including one concert in Canada in July. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
