Good news: fans are still willing to pay outrageous amounts to see their favorite acts live, and that includes hefty surcharges. Here's a round-up of the most expensive August shows, with average ticket prices quoted. It comes courtesy of Dashlane, a company focused on quick, pre-loaded and encrypted transactions on the web.
A few late-July and post-August dates are also sprinkled in for fun.

... and even moreso when you think that the next most expensive are mostly 3-day passes to loaded shows.
Oh - and that I read that her show is only ~an hour long!

For me to pay $484 for a Madonna ticket, she better perform in my garden...

Thanks, Dave. Great info and research. People pay for great music and performers. Maybe radio could offer more appealing music formats to attract more audience and income?
