Aerosmith Sued Over Cancelled Canadian Shows

Rockers AEROSMITH are facing a multi million dollar lawsuit from promoters in Canada after they cancelled a string of shows in the country last year (09).
The band scrapped a chunk of its North American tour in 2009 after frontman Steven Tyler broke his left shoulder falling from the stage at a gig in South Dakota.
The axed dates included five concerts in Canada last August (09), and now executives at Keystone Entertainment Group Ltd. have filed suit against the band, alleging the musicians breached their contract by scrapping the shows and failing to respond to requests to reschedule the dates.
The legal papers, filed in a Calgary court, claim bosses at Keystone reached out to the rockers last September (09) in a bid to plan new concerts, but received no response.
The lawsuit alleges the company lost money and seeks $6 million (£4 million) in damages for lost ticket sales and profits for the five concerts, according to the Toronto Sun.
Aerosmith kick off a European tour on Thursday (10Jun10) in Sweden, before embarking on a series of North American shows, including one concert in Canada, in July (10).
