Manier & Herod attorney Josh Wilson recently obtained a judgment of $170,704.45 on behalf of his client, Cirque Musica, LLC, against Defendant 191 Touring, LLC (In the Chancery Court of Davidson County, No. 19-1498-II). The case revolved around a touring promotor who failed to pay the performers guaranteed payments as detailed in the contract between the parties. With the touring, music and entertainment industry in disarray due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important for performers and artists to know their contractual rights. Many promotors are now attempting to remove the artists’ guaranteed payments and the contracts between artists and promotors are evolving quickly. The contracts now being presented to artists look quite differently than they did in the past when the touring industry was booming. If you have concerns about your contract or the terms being negotiated in contracts, please do not hesitate to contact Attorney Josh Wilson.
