Adam Lambert would NEVER perform in Russia for less than $500,000 — this according to a new lawsuit, in which a promotional company claims it was conned into thinking it could book him for a fraction of that price.
UK-based Madison Universal filed the lawsuit against a talent agency in Santa Monica named Family Productions — claiming FP promised to broker a deal in which Adam would perform two concerts for $80,000 … one in Ukraine and one in Russia.
Madison claims it paid FP a 10% deposit of $8,000 — but FP didn”t do squat to line-up the concerts … so Madison tried to get its money back … to no avail.
According to the complaint, Madison grew suspicious — so it contacted Adam”s agent Randy Salcedo at CAA — who informed Madison that an $80,000 fee wouldn”t cover a Lambert concert in Russia … let alone an additional one in Ukraine.
According to the suit, the cost for flying Lambert out to Eastern Europe to perform is more accurately $500,000 … or more.
Madison is suing FP for unspecified damages in excess of $25,000. Calls to FP were not returned.
