MTV.com reports: Hair-metallers Twisted Sister are keeping the $25,000 deposit they were handed when they were booked to perform at a benefit concert for the U.S. troops in California, according to The Orange County Register. The band is demanding to be paid the rest of its agreed-upon fee of $50,000 for the gig, which was canceled due to lack of interest.
A Newport Beach, California couple borrowed $100,000 to book TWISTED SISTER with the hopes that they will sell enough tickets to make all their money back, and then some. The Dec. 14 show was to raise money for the Southern California families of military personnel in Iraq.
If "A Twisted Christmas…Caroling for the Corps" sold all 4,300 seats at the Bren Events Center at UCI, it would have paid off the loan the couple took out, and raised more than $100,000 for the Southern California Chapter of Operation Homefront, a national organization that helps pay the bills for the families of deployed troops and those who return home wounded. Also planned to play were METAL SKOOL and THE IRON MAIDENS (a female tribute band to IRON MAIDEN).
