Sioux Empire Fair pursuing new rules for profanityFuture entertainment contracts will likely include a provision forbidding profanity.
SIOUX FALLS (AP) — Performers at the annual Sioux Empire Fair may soon be watching their language.
The media reports that future entertainment contracts will likely include a provision forbidding profanity.
The move stems from two recent instances in which performers used profanity: one this year and one last year from rocker Ted Nugent.
Fair Director Scott Wick spoke to the Minnehaha County Commission about the issue Tuesday.
He says a representative of the concert promoter suggested this year's incident was in direct response to performers being told not to use profanity.
Says Wick, "They did it because I told them they couldn't."
The new provisions would likely call for performers to lose money if they used foul language.
