Drake Sued For Owing Tour Stage Designer Since 2018
Drake is being sued for over $100k for reportedly not paying the designer of his 2018 “Aubrey & The Three Amigos” Tour.
According to a report by The Blast, the rapper is being sued for $108,000 for reportedly never paying the designer for the work which consists of 3D stage designs.
Representatives for firm Sila Sveta claims the company was hired to create visual elements for the stage via large screens, behind rapper as he performed.
According to obtained court documents, the company claims they went to work on the project and created “a unique visual experience and to elevate design standards across the industry.”
However, at some point in the process,
they delayed the dates of the tour (requiring Sila Sveta staff to work of additional days) and radically changed the configuration, size, and shape of the screens on which the video content was to be played four times.
Describing the design, the company says:
The stage was located in the center of the arena and its surface was completely covered with a LED screen mounted on the floor and on its sides, which created a 3D surface to reproduce 3D illusions. The show also utilized drones, a flying Ferrari, dancers, pyrotechnics and a light show. Inspired by the layout of a basketball court. The show used a lot of visual effects. Among them were lasers, CO2 effects, a flying Ferrari, and 200 flying drones that created volumetric figures above the artist.
The company sued in Los Angeles court and Drake’s team are yet to address the press.
