City Limits Tucson Closed

The City Limits nightclub in Tucson, Ariz., recently closed its doors because of several lawsuits claiming fraudulent practices by its owner, Bradley Nozicka.

The venue was shut down after Nozicka’s assets were seized to protect the interests of investors who filed suits in Maricopa County Superior Court, according to the Tucson Citizen.

Phoenix attorney Ryan Anderson, who represents the man holding assets in trust until the lawsuits’ outcomes, reportedly said City Limits shuttered because it was losing money.

The club’s phone was disconnected and Nozicka couldn’t be reached for comment at press time.

Nozicka’s Cal Productions was also closed in March amid a flurry of lawsuits and accusations. Investors in the promotions company are seeking a reported $16 million in compensation.

Nozicka recruited investors for several years in an effort to bring big-name talent to Tucson, according to the suits. Alleged enticements included bringing Garth Brooks in for a one-off, despite his retirement.

When the big shows didn’t happen, plaintiffs claim they were left with unpaid promissory notes.

Nozicka is accused of attempting to repay original investors with money from new ones.

Also named in the suits are Cal Productions principal William Gaylon, and Phoenix trust attorney Robert Rosepink.

Gaylon claims he doesn’t know what Nozicka has done with the money and has his own lawsuit against the promoter.

“I hesitate to say, I don’t know what happened, and my client doesn’t know what happened up there in Tucson,” Gaylon attorney Shawn Aiken previously told Pollstar.

While the lawsuits claim fraud, no criminal charges appear to have been filed against Nozicka or Gaylon in either Pima or Maricopa counties, the Citizen said.
