Louisville Promoter Suing Wu-Tang Clan for RZA No-show
Published Mar 24, 2011In late 2010, the Wu-Tang Clan launched "The Rebirth Tour," a North American trip billed as a Wu-Tang reunion. Despite those claims, central force the RZA was nowhere to be found on any of the dates. This fact has ruffled the feathers of a promoter in Louisville, KY, who has launched a lawsuit against the venerable rap group.
According to the Courthouse News [via The Daily Swarm], promoter Terry Harper has taken on the International Artist Agency, who represent the Wu-Tang Clan, in Jefferson County Court. Harper claims that he put more than $16,000 down after he was allegedly promised all nine Wu-Tang members for a Louisville show in January of this year.
Claiming that RZA is the "group's most popular member and the biggest crowd draw," Harper said the event was "poorly attended" and that the International Artist Agency refused to issue a refund. He is seeking damages for breach of contract, fraud and misrepresentation.
