Pop superstar has settled a lawsuit over a canceled concert in Ireland. The musician was hit with a $2.3 million suit after he reportedly pulled out of a show at Dublin's Croke Park in June 2008 just 10 days before the event.

Bosses at promotions company MCD were seeking compensation for financial loss and damage to commercial reputation from Prince, full name Prince Rogers Nelson, as well as his agents at the California-based William Morris Endeavor Entertainment. The case went before a judge at Dublin's Commercial Court on Tuesday, February 23, and the star's representatives agreed to settle the case out of court on Friday, February 16.

Details of the settlement were not disclosed. The judge overseeing the case, Justice Peter Kelly, asked the star's attorney, Paul Sreenan, if the settlement had been "confirmed" and if so, did the word confirmed "in Prince speak mean the same as it means in English?" - referring to an email sent by the singer's assistant which confirmed the Dublin show would go ahead.

MCD promoter Denis Desmond said he was "delighted" with the result, according to the Irish Times.
