Phish Concert at SPAC by the Numbers – Approximately $3 Million in Ticket Sales

DATES:   July 6,7,8 2012  (Friday, Saturday,Sunday)

LOCATION: Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC)

TICKET PRICES:  $60, lawn $45

AUDIENCE SIZE:  Let’s guess a LOW NUMBER of 20,000 each night.  Maximum Audience Size capped at 25,000.

A LITTLE MATH:

$60 X 5,000   =   $ 300,000  (5,000 is the approximate number of seats in the Amphitheater)

$45 X 15,000 =    $ 675,000  (the lawn)

TOTAL FOR ONE NIGHT:

$ 975,000 WITH 20,000 PEOPLE

TOTAL FOR THREE NIGHTS:

$ 2,925,000 IN TICKET SALES FOR (60,000 PEOPLE)

$ 3 MILLION  FOR THREE NIGHTS IF YOU INCREASE THE THREE DAY TOTAL ATTENDANCE TO 62,277 PEOPLE)

WHAT PERCENTAGE OF GATE GOES TO SPAC:

$ 00.00 (SPAC’S CONTRACT DOES NO COVER A PERCENTAGE OF THE GATE.  NOT EVEN A TASTE.)

POINT:

A LOT OF MONEY WAS MADE DURING THESE THREE NIGHTS – BUT  THE SARATOGA PERFORMING ARTS CENTER (SPAC) DOES NOT GET ANY EXTRA MONEY FOR HOSTING THE THREE NIGHTS OF PHISH.

SPECIAL NOTE:

July 6, 7, 8 ALWAYS USE TO BE USED BY THE NYC BALLET (WHEN THEIR SEASON WAS 3 WEEKS LONG).

SPECIAL NOTE II:

ONCE AGAIN, HOW LUCKY FOR LIVE NATION.  YET ANOTHER WEEK IN JUNE WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR ROCK & ROLL SHOWS  THANKS TO THE BALLET SEASON GOING TO ONE WEEK.
