Isn't the problem the currency down in South America. Didnt Coldplay just get in a load of crap in Chile or somewhere because for them to charge a ticket price that pays their bills and justify the tour, they ended up having to charge like the equivalent of half a months salary for citizens down there. Kind of a damned if they do, damned if they dont thing. They either don't come and south america gets upset, or they do and have to charge a fortune to avoid loosing tons of money on that leg which gets everyone complaining about the ticket prices. Which countires does this happen in, ie if they charged you $50 US dollars, what does that equate to down there? Just asking as I myself am curious

The problem is the taxes. Countries like Peru and Chile charge a LOT of taxes to foreign artists.

To give you an idea:

Imagine The Cure ask 200 000 US$ per show, plus expenses (flight tickets, hotel, cathering, etc.)

If they would perform in Peru, the state would ask to the promoter for

-50% of what they spent for bringing The Cure (ie.: 50% of 200 0000 plus expenses)

-From the tickets, the state would ask
--15% as municipal taxes (taxes for the district)
--10% copyrights
--18% general taxes

So if the ticket cost US$50 then the state (talking about Peru) gets about 20US$, 30US$ remaining for the promoter (with this money he has to cover the band's fee plus expenses). That's why prices for concerts like this usually rank from 50US$ to 300US$ in counties like Peru, Chile and Colombia.

In Peru 50US$ is about 150 soles, which is about 33% of the minimun salary. I guess is a similar picture in the whole latinamerica.

For Roger Water Waters it was sold out in Buenos Aires (the first night). The rest of countries (Brazil, Chile) had an attendance of about 80% I would say (we're talking here about stadiums of 50 000 capacity).

In Peru and Colombia the attendance was lower, maybe around 60% (and the venues were smaller too, 20 000 capacity)
