(Mar. 7, 12:20PM ET) -- Rod Stewart has lost another court battle over being a no-show at his own concert. A Las Vegas judge ordered the singer to cough up $2 million for an advance he received to play the Rio. Stewart was ordered to pay an additional $981,926 in interest. And then there's the $153 grand for sanctions and legal fees.
Stewart failed to perform at a millennium concert in Sin City. Last September, a jury decided that Stewart had no right to keep the advance. The judge finalized the verdict last Friday. Stewart's lawyer says the singer will appeal.
This is the second time Stewart has lost a concert no-show case. In 2004, Stewart was ordered to pay $780,000 for an advance he received for a Latin American concert tour. The Los Angeles jury socked Stewart's reps with an addition $1.6 million in damages.
TMZ has video of the not-so-successful Stewart on the stand in the Los Angeles case. Does Rod lack courtroom appeal? Watch the video -- then you be the judge.
