CHARLOTTETOWN, Prince Edward Island (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — David Carver, the promoter who brought the Black Eyed Peas to Prince Edward Island last summer, is looking to stage another concert this year, but will have to settle an unpaid bill first.
The city of Charlottetown is seeking restitution on an outstanding $17,000 charge for security services for last September’s Black Eyed Peas concert that drew 18,000 people to the Charlottetown Driving Park.
Deputy Mayor Stu MacFadyen told the CBC News that Carver, the police and fire department worked out the security plan and contracts in advance, and that no progress will be made on future concerts until this debt is settled.
“He’s talking of another concert and we haven’t got to that stage yet because we have to get the first hurdle first, which is the payment of what is owed from the last concert,” MacFadyen said.
City Councilman Rob Lantz has reportedly been dealing with Carver over the outstanding bill, and said that the promoter is planning to pay his debt by the end of the week.
Rumors regarding this summers concert have mentioned names such as Aerosmith and the Eagles, but nothing has been confirmed at this time. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
