Aerosmith In New York State Of Mind

Officials of the New York State Fair are taking heat for striking a deal for an Aerosmith appearance August 26 that guarantees the band a million dollars.  The deal, which includes an attendance based incentives that could earn the group another $300,000 according to the Syracuse Post Standard, exceeds the record amount the event paid to get two major country acts, Rascal Flatts and Taylor Swift, two years ago.  At $104, premium seats for the Boston band's concert will shatter the record for highest concert ticket price ever by $34.  Even the cheap seats, priced at $84, beat the previous highest priced show by $14.  The margins for breaking even on the show are so thin the fair stands to lose money on the show if just a few hundred  seats go unsold - a prospect that has some taxpayers and officials in the cash strapped state thinking that Fair officials need to Get A Grip.
