Concertgoer Sues over Assault at 50 Cent Concert

50-cent.jpgA Canadian concertgoer has filed a lawsuit against four security guards, a concert promoter and the Pacific National Exhibition of Vancouver after he was assaulted at a 50 Cent concert. According to the Vancouver Sun, Clayton Barker of Abbotsford, BC claims he was grabbed, thrown to the ground and forcibly removed from the December 3, 2005 show after the guards mistook him for someone else. Baker believes that the show’s promoter encouraged a violent atmosphere by advertising the concert with violent imagery, which in turn, attracted a violent crowd. According to Baker’s lawsuit, which was filed in B.C. Supreme Court, the plaintiff suffered bruising on his face, pain in his hand and shoulders, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life and was unable to work after the incident. He is seeking unspecified damages. In 2005, Liberal MP Dan McTeague asked Immigration Minister Joe Volpe to ban the rapper from the country after a man was shot to death during a screening of 50’s film Get Rich or Die Tryin.’
