Denver Seat Tax Tango?

AEG Live (i.e., Chuck Morris’ office) is continuing negotiations with the Denver City Council about hosting a two-day festival next summer and the words of the day are "seat tax revenue."

AEG could be required to tack on a 10 percent seat tax on every ticket, which will give the city $750,000 in annual revenue, according to the Rocky Mountain News.

The Mile High Music and Arts Festival, tentatively scheduled for July 19-20, could attract up to 35,000 fans a day in its first year.

The city wants to use half of the seat tax for improvements at City Park, and AEG would contribute $1 per ticket to a still unidentified nonprofit that serves the surrounding neighborhood, the paper said.
