Fans Sue Band For Inadequate Performance

Four fans of the band Creed are suing the band for $2 million in damages after a concert in Chicago, claiming that the band “failed to perform substantially” at the show. “Lead singer Scott Stapp is alleged to have been either so drunk or so stoned that he was unable to sing a single Creed song. Instead, he frequently left the stage, rolled around on the floor and appeared to pass out. On one hand, it’s difficult to hear this story without smirking. On the other hand, however, it sets a frankly terrifying precedent. If the lawsuit is successful, where will it lead? Every band has their off nights – will any dissatisfied fan then go rushing to court? Who will decide what constitutes a substandard show? How?”
