Ticket Tax Trounced

Commerce City, Colo., voters overwhelmingly defeated a proposed entertainment tax that would have added an 8 percent surcharge to the price of tickets from movies to concerts.

The measure, opposed by AEG Live Rocky Mountain and Kroenke Sports Entertainment, failed by a more than 4-1 margin, according to the Rocky Mountain News.

AEG’s Chuck Morris had previously said the tax, if approved, would have forced him to move the Mile High Festival from Dick’s Sporting Goods Park to another venue outside the Denver suburb.
