Nugent Cancellation Nets Settlement
Ted Nugent has scored a $45,000 settlement after a Ridgefield, Wash., fair rescinded an offer to have him play this summer.
Nugent was booked to play the Clark County Fair in April but some in the community began expressing concerns whether the Motor City Madman was a good fit for the family-friendly event.
A petition circulated to have him removed from the lineup and he was taken off in August and paid $30,000. Northwest Events & Marketing, which booked the show, covered the settlement, the paper said.
This isn’t the first time one of Nugent’s shows was canceled amid controversy. A Native American tribe in Idaho pulled the plug on an August show over the rocker’s “racist and hate-filled remarks” and the city of Longview, Texas, paid him more than $16,000 to cancel a fourth of July show.
