Mötley Crüe face $30 million lawsuit from 2014 tour openers The Raskins
Legendary glam metallers Mötley Crüe are facing a lwasuit from New York rockers The Raskins over the two bands' joint U.S. tour which took place in 2014.
According to a "New York Post" report, Twins Logan and Roger Raskin claim they paid $1 million to open for Mötley Crüe in 2014 and had a contract negotiated by Artist Group International, but it wasn't honored. they also lament that
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.
Moreover, the brothers claim that at one of the stops on the tour, crew members working for the headliners ran out on stage in monkey masks and sprayed The Raskins "with water guns filled with urine".
The Manhattan Supreme Court suit names Tenth Street Entertainment, AGI and other production companies.
