I will simply remind my readers that there are two sides to every story, and you may or may not necessarily get all that in this AP article about Interlochen suing Tori over the cancelled Interlochen, MI concert. I was surprised to see that it was the Interlochen Center for the Arts and not Tori's management that cancelled the concert...
Thanks to the many people who emailed me about this. You can read the article at abcnews.go.com, washingtonpost.com, CNN.com or below:
Arts School Sues Tori Amos Over Concert
TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) -- Interlochen Center for the Arts has filed a lawsuit against Tori Amos and her California-based manager, seeking to recoup a $40,000 deposit for a concert that never took place.
Interlochen officials canceled the Aug. 19 performance because of unresolved concerns over the terms of the singer's contract, the Traverse City Record-Eagle reported Thursday.
The lawsuit describes deadlocked negotiations over the amount to have been spent on catering, the number of "comp" tickets requested by Amos and her demand that up to three "awareness groups" be allowed to set up on the Interlochen campus during her concert.
Amos, 40, has been touring with Ben Folds on her "Lottapianos Tour." Her albums include "Little Earthquakes," "Under the Pink" and "Scarlet's Walk."
Interlochen called off the concert just days before it was to have taken place because Creative Artists Agency of Beverly Hills, Calif., didn't respond to an amended contract, said Ronald Sondee, the arts center's lawyer.
A representative for Amos at CAA didn't return a message from the Record-Eagle seeking comment.
