[quote=Sanitarium78;399800]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.


Not necessarily.... Pick up a copy of "The Ticket Masters" by Dean Budnick. I'm reading that now, and it's an eye-opener! In some cases the venues LOSE money on ticket sales - for example, Jimmy Buffett gets 125% (NOT a typo!) of the gate receipts! And that, my friends, is why we are forced to buy $9.50 Bud Lights and a $13.00 hot dog! As one venue owner put it "We are not in the entertainment business any more. We are running a very expensive deli."
