Black Keys manager won't be prosecuted for ticket offer

April 19th, 2013 4:40 pm by Staff Report

NASHVILLE — Davidson County District Attorney Torry Johnson says the manager of the Black Keys did not break the law by offering to give tickets to one of the band's performances to a lawyer opposed to a bill to crack down on ticket scalping.
The bill was withdrawn earlier this month. It would have put controls on the secondary ticket market.
But last month a lawyer who opposed the measure made allegations that manager Fielding Logan tried to persuade him to change his position in exchange for the tickets.
Logan, who also manages country music singer Eric Church, denied any attempts to gain influence. He said he was merely demonstrating how easily paperless tickets can be passed to charities.
Johnson announced the decision in a letter sent Thursday.
