Club Nomadic sues tribe over canceled Super Bowl events

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A traveling nightclub that was built to hold VIP events during the Super Bowl is suing a Minnesota tribe for breach of contract.

Earlier this month, a company owned by the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community abruptly canceled events at Club Nomadic, a building that was constructed in a parking lot at Mystic Lake Casino Hotel and was nearly finished.

Instead concerts by Gwen Stefani, Florida Georgia Line and others were moved inside the casino.

Nomadic Entertainment Group filed its lawsuit Tuesday and hopes to recover more than $2.4 million in construction costs, as well as the profits it expected from ticket sales and other revenue.

An attorney for Dakota February Events, a limited liability company owned by the tribe, said the company was within its rights to cancel the contract.
