    Less than 5,000 in a venue that could have sold 18,000 with their stage set up. Little bit better than 25% capacity.

    So what you're saying is . . . Arcade Fire overestimated their popularity in Nashville?

    Good to know.

    It'll sell well in such a big market at the height of tourist season, but it's mind boggling the amount of competition they have that week or so.

    Jack White, Monty Python(all 5), Elton, Sabbath/Soundgarden, Hop Farm, Wireless with Kanye/Drake/Bruno, Eminem, Neil Young & Crazy Horse and Pearl Jam.

    Arcade Fire play 2 Earl's Court shows in a 3 weeks time and also play Glastonbury. In this area it'll be fan's 4th chance to see them.

    I love Arcade Fire but they need to reevaluate their touring strategy. I don't see how selling 25-30% of arenas can be profitable.

    Another example similar to Nashville:

    In St. Louis, they booked the Verizon Wireless Ampitheatre, with a capacity of 20,000. Poor ticket sales lead to Groupon promotions, and then they finally moved it to Chaifetz arena, with a capacity of 10,000. And then the show still only sold about 3-4000 tickets. It's bad.

    Promoters usually budget arena shows to be hit the profit around the 3,000 mark. AF also benefit from merch and VIP tickets.

    The one that gets me is Ottawa having discounted tickets. It's the 2nd closest show to the lone Montreal hometown gig and only a 2-3 hour drive.

    Remember the 2013 talk of them playing Stadiums in North America?

    Do you have a source for profitability around 3,000? I'd like to read more about touring economics. Completely serious.

    I'm not buying Arcade Fire tickets until the week of. I'll probably hit up 2-3 nights for like 40 bucks total. Thanks Arcade Fire for booking 4 shows in my area.

    General industry rule of thumb repeated by many in industry interviews. Changes if the act wants to goes nuts on production, depends on pricing/VIP packages sold and depends on the venue rental and they make money from parking/concessions. Some amphitheaters charge little for rental and make everything on parking/food/beer/advertising. Helps explain why some acts always tour with the same pattern/type of shows while ignoring others.

    Their management got little ambitious. They will play to big crowds and make stupid money but some empty seats and tickets on the scalper market going for pennies on the dollar does take away from enthusiasm by the fan base.

    In 2010 Arcade Fire played the 2,360 capacity Ryman on their Nashville stop. Probably the coolest venue to see them on that year and 2014 they may have played on of the least desirable shows on the year.

    Why would scalpers losing money make fans less enthused?

    I've given up hope that they'll stop in Vegas on this tour. I might try to get to the LA Forum show because I love the new album and I don't want to miss this.
