Michaels Sues Over Postponed Gig

BRET MICHAELS is taking legal action against a gig promoter over allegations the rocker turned up to perform in New York only to be told the concert had been cancelled without his knowledge.
The Poison star claims he arrived at the CNY Regional Market venue in Syracuse, New York on 5 August (10) with his crew but was left fuming when he found out the gig had been postponed.
The concert promoter, Mike Banks, allegedly claimed he axed the show because he found out Michaels was due to appear on American Idol that night, but the rocker's TV appearance was in fact pre-recorded.
Michaels has now filed a lawsuit against Banks and Aloha Events, accusing the promoter of "breaching his contract and exposing him to public contempt and ridicule with allegedly defamatory statements about his schedule".
The lawsuit is seeking more than $5 million (£3.3 million) in damages, according to Syracuse.com.

WTG Bret. Seen the interview on the news. That Banks guy acted like he didn't care. Just drove 3 1/2 to to Bret perform a few weeks ago. I would have been ticked to get there and find out there was no concert!!! Bret did great on that interview too. He was pissed, but handled it well like he always does. Great how he still meet with the fans!!! He's just awesome!
