Concert Promoter Files Lawsuit Against Saltdogs/UNL

LINCOLN -- Organizers of a concert last summer at Haymarket Park are suing the Lincoln Saltdogs the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and its baseball stadium for fraud and breach of contract. Tim Tucker, owner of a Colorado entertainment company who proposed last summer's Bluesmasters Concert, accuses Charlie Meyer, president of the Saltdogs and a representative of the concert's venue partners, of secretly adding a clause to the event contract requiring $100,000 upfront payment to the baseball organization, Haymarket Park and the university. The lawsuit also says those groups wrongly kept all the money from concert ticket sales, leaving Tucker's group to pay performers - including the Allman Brothers Band - and other expenses from its own pocket.
