Stadium Sued Over U2 Slip

Brisbane resident Alison Farmer is suing Stadium Queensland for A$250,000 (US$197,000).

She slipped on garbage on stairs after U2’s 2006 show in QE11 Stadium and fractured her wrist.

In a claim lodged in Brisbane District Court, the 46-year-old admitted she’d had four glasses of champagne.

But she maintained Stadium Queensland failed to maintain the stairwells in a “reasonable and safe condition” and not hired enough cleaners.
