Prince fails to pay compensation for cancelled Dublin gig

Promoters seeking cash - plus interest - after non-payment

Prince is being chased for money after failing to pay compensation for a cancelled show in Dublin in 2008.

Promoters MCD initially sued the singer and his agents William Morris Endeavour Entertainment for 1.7 million Euros (£1,440,000) but the case ended when Prince agreed to settle out of court.

According to, new court papers state that MCD are still seeking the compensation amount that was agreed upon.

The gig had been scheduled to take place in the city’s Croke Park stadium.

The documents read: “MCD seeks this Court’s recognition of judgment of the High Court of Ireland entered against the defendant Prince Rogers Nelson on March 26, 2010 in the amount of 2.2 million Euros (£1.86 million).”

Prince has so far not responded publicly to the new court papers being.
