Singer Rod Stewart and casino operator Harrah's Entertainment will go to court next week in a contract dispute over a canceled concert. Harrah's paid Stewart $2 million, and demanded it back after the singer canceled the event. Stewart refused, claiming that he had to cancel because he was recovering from thyroid cancer surgery. Since the cancellation was for an event beyond he control, he's arguing, he doesn't have to refund the money.
