Club Bites Pitbull

Canceling a gig after sound check might end up costing rapper Pitbull, according to a suit filed by El Potrero Night Club in the Los Angeles suburb of Cudahy, Calif., and reported by TMZ.

The suit, filed in L.A. Superior Court, alleges that Pitbull showed up to the club May 14 for a show, complained about the sound equipment and canceled about four hours before the gig.

Club owners reportedly accuse him of keeping the $28,000 he was paid to perform and costing El Potrero $80,000 for the last-minute cancellation, according to TMZ.

A source for Pitbull told Pollstar the lawsuit was yet to be made available, but there was no sound equipment at the club for soundcheck and, by 11 p.m., with fans waiting outside, the artist had to cancel.
