It's not like the band doesn't have the money.
If I was the venue I would have them back again because not only would you get money from the ticket sales but you can make a bunch off the fine if they play over again. From a monetary stand point it just seems stupid to not have them back.
I'm speculating here, but the fine was probably levied by the local city/town/neighborhood, or the local stagehands union. Not the venue.
