NB: Despite the headline the idiots at mynewsLA.com slapped on this item,The rock band Journey sued Monster Inc. Friday for allegedly failing to pay them $500,000 to play at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas in January in connection with the Consumer Electronics Show.
The San Francisco-born group filed the suit in Los Angeles Superior Court, alleging breach of contract by the audio/visual components company.
A Monster Inc. representative could not be immediately reached for comment.
The suit states that both sides reached an agreement in October 2015 for Journey to perform on Jan. 7 with a $500,000 guarantee. However, a Monster Inc. executive called a Creative Artists Agency representative for Journey in November stating that the website did not have the money “that they planned on having,” the suit states.
All the CAA representative received was Monster Inc.’s apologies, according to the lawsuit.
The suit seeks $500,000, plus interest.

we can only assume Journey was stiffed (Good & hard, too!) by Monster, Inc., the expensive cable & other audio horseshit company rather than Monster.com, the website for job supplicants. Ha ha ha, no matter which.
Journey band to Monster.com:
Where’s our $500,000?
