CLARK COUNTY, Washington (CelebrityAccess) — Ted Nugent was awarded a settlement worth $45,000 following a canceled show at the Clark County Fair that was scheduled for August 5th.
According to The Columbian, the terms of the settlement stipulate that Northwest Events & Marketing, the company that booked Nugent for the fair, paid the controversial singer $15,000 over the summer. The agreement also required Northwest Events & Marketing to book Nugent for an alternate date on Aug. 5 at the Portland Expo Center that netted Nugent an additional $30,000.
Nugent's original deal with Northwest Events & Marketing called for him to be paid $61,500 for his performance at the county fair, but the singer's history of outspoken conservative political views drew protests from some local residents, and a petition to have him removed from the lineup appeared on Moveon.org. However, Fair Manager John Morrison maintains that the cancellation had nothing to do with the protests and instead was due to Nugent performing at nearby dates just a few days before, a violation of his contract with the fair.
None of the parties involved admitted to any culpability. – Staff Writers
