Aerosmith Sued By Concert-Goer For Hearing Loss

Fans who pick up a copy of Aerosmith's new double-live disc, "A Little South of Sanity," may want to be careful how loud they crank up the volume, based on a lawsuit filed on Monday by a concert-goer who attended an October 1997 Aerosmith show.

The plaintiff, Mark Nieto, claims that he suffered permanent hearing loss following an Aerosmith performance at the Concord Pavilion in Concord, California, and that he was not made aware of the possibility of such a hearing loss prior to the show, according to the Associated Press.

Nieto's suit cites both Aerosmith and the publicly-owned Concord Pavilion as the parties responsible for his condition, and seeks damages based on incurred medical expenses and lost wages.

As for Aerosmith, the band is currently in a stretch of Canadian dates of its North American tour, and is scheduled to play the Quebec Coliseum Arena in Quebec on Thursday and the Copps Coliseum in Hamilton, Ontario on Saturday.
