Neil Young Fined $10K For Playing 10 Minutes Past Curfew
The veteran rocker took to the stage at the DTE Energy Music Theater in Clarkston on Tuesday night (July 14th) and ended his 23-song set with a two-song encore of Don’t Be Denied and Roll Another Number.
He finished the gig at 11.10pm local time, 10 minutes after the imposed 11pm curfew.
According to local news station CBS Detroit, bosses at the venue charge a $1,000 -per-minute fine to artists who surpass the curfew, resulting in the $10,000 bill.
The curfew policy has been in place since the early 2000s, as the venue is close to residential areas.
