Zohar Law Firm Files Suit Against the Los Angeles Dodgers Regarding Paul McCartney and AC/DC Concert Revenue

(January 11, 2017)

Tommy Davis helped broker the deals for the sold-out shows, but the Dodgers refuse to pay, lawsuit alleges

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--With the help of music industry veteran Tommy Davis, Paul McCartney and AC/DC performed sold out shows at Dodger Stadium in 2014 and 2015, restoring the prestige of Dodger Stadium as a major concert venue. The Dodgers received millions in profits, but according to the lawsuit, never paid Davis for his work. Davis, represented by the Zohar Law Firm, has now sued the Dodgers for the commissions owed to him.

The lawsuit alleges that over a two-year period, Mr. Davis worked closely with Dodgers executive Lon Rosen, as well as Kraig Fox, then of Guggenheim Partners, the Dodgers owner. Davis proposed staging major concerts at Dodger Stadium and was promised a fee for bringing any events there. At the request of Rosen and Fox, Davis then facilitated meetings between the Dodgers and Paul Tollett, the President and CEO of the major concert promoter Goldenvoice, owned by AEG. With Davis involvement, those meetings led to the McCartney and AC/DC shows being produced, and millions in profits for the Dodgers. However, the Dodgers have since refused to pay Davis.


Said Daniel Y. Zohar, Mr. Davis lawyer: ?Success in the entertainment business is all about getting access to the right people. Mr. Davis delivered to them the access they needed and requested. That led to Paul McCartney and AC/DC playing sold out shows at Dodger Stadium. Now the Dodgers must compensate Mr. Davis in return, as they promised.

After the successful McCartney and AC/DC shows, in February 2016, the Dodgers signed a deal with Oak View Group, run by Tim Leiweke and Irving Azoff, to regularly schedule several major concerts a year at Dodger Stadium.
