A couple in Lincoln, Neb., is suing “Cat Scratch Fever” rocker Ted Nugent, 52, for allegedly reneging on an eBay Internet auction deal in which they said they paid $1,535 in order to have dinner with him and receive front-row seats at one of his concerts. Instead, say Ron and Krishelle Bennett, at his Aug. 25 performance at Sandstone Amphitheatre in Bonner Springs, Kan., Nugent only spoke to them briefly and they had to sit 30 rows back (in $45 seats). After complaining, they say, the couple was allowed to observe the concert from the side of the stage. Nugent’s manager told the Associated Press that he had not seen the lawsuit and, therefore, had no comment.
