Entertaining can be a dangerous profession. At least for Christina Aguilera, who required a physician on-site during a 2007 concert in New Jersey.

And for the hometown heros Bruce Springsteen and the E Street band, the Izod Center was willing to pull out the stops to provide the late Clarence Clemons a six-person limo.

Documents released to the Newark Star-Ledger contain the contracts of hundreds of musical and other entertainment acts from 2007 to 2011 at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

The newspaper requested the documents to look into why the arena was in so much financial trouble.

From The Wiggles to Disney On Ice to Jay-Z, the documents show a range of acts and contractual obligations.

During the 2009 Bruce Springsteen concerts, the contract banned the sale of glow sticks and roses.

When the circus came to town, the Ringling Brothers requested express permission to sell their own Sno-Cones.

The contracts also show a range of ticket prices, depending on the size of the act and the draw.

Tickets for a 2007 Justin Timberlake concert cost as much as $90, while Nickelback fans only had to shell out $49.50.

Entertainment acts usually kept most of the profit, but the Izod Center profited from the sale of some apparel and CDs.

The Izod Center — the former home of the New Jersey Nets– has been in financial peril since 2007. The Star-Ledger engaged in a lengthy legal battle with the sports authority that ran the arena for access to the records.
