Not sure why Ticketmaster US rapes you guys so hard. Ticketmaster UK is usually more expensive than the alternatives, but on occasion they've actually been cheaper. The worst case I've ever encountered was actually with someone else. 2005, Black Crowes shows at Shepherd's Bush Empire in London where See Tickets, who are normally reasonable, were charging an extra £10 on a £30 ticket ($20 on a $60 ticket).
That was very out of the ordinary here.
The only comparison I personally have outside of England is Billetlugen in Denmark, who charged me 50 DEK on a 530 DEK ticket for KISS at the Copenhagen Forum this coming June. In approximate terms that's $10 on a $108 ticket.
What irritates me most is when fees vary with the same company. Booking that ticket for The Black Crowes (which I refused to book in the end) is NO DIFFERENT to booking a ticket for Witchcraft, for which they charged me £2 on two tickets at a total of £18.50. The same £2 was charged for one Cult ticket at £32.10 and on two Alter Bridge tickets at £21 total.
