Refund checks have been mailed to about 7,500 fans who complained about garbled sound during the August 11 Eagles concert at the grand opening of the new Mile High stadium. The final refund tab came to $319,000 with the Eagles paying $204,000 and the Metropolitan Football Stadium District paying $115,000.
But the stadium district is still withholding a $104,000 payment to Jam Productions, the event's concert promoter, to cover its share of the refunds.
Jam's Jerry Mickelson called those actions "unethical," reports the Denver Post," and said the company is considering legal options. As previously reported, Stadium district Executive Director Tim Romani said people in the upper bowls had difficulty hearing the 35-minute pre- and post-concert presentations, produced by Jam, which is why the $104,000 is being withheld.
"What he is doing is blatantly against the contract he signed," Michelson said. "If we don't get our money back, we will see them in court."
Romani maintains that the sound quality was the responsibility of the Eagles and Jam.
