Mötley Crüe Sued For $30 Million
The New York Post shared a report stating that a $30 million lawsuit has been levelled against Mötley Crüe in Manhattan Supreme Court by former opening band, The Raskins. The suit stems from a 2014 support tour, with Logan and Roger Raskin claiming their “once in a lifetime chance to open for the Crüe during a 2014 tour was sabotaged by months of hazing — including getting blasted with urine on stage".
The Raskins also claim they were forced to play short sets in mostly empty venues after managers often refused to open the doors for shows; the public address system was turned off or interfered with during their shows; they weren’t allowed to sell merchandise or give them dressing rooms; and they were hit with heavy equipment.
The Raskins paid $1 million to join the tour and had a contract negotiated by Artist Group International, but it wasn’t honored, the rockers claim. Tenth Street, Artist Group International and the other defendants did not return messages.
