Lollapalooza to Pay More in Restructured Deal with the City

Looks like Lollapalooza and the city restructured the deal to everyones benefit(minus the concert goers) according to the Crain's Chicago:
A new agreement between the Chicago Park District and concert organizer C3 Presents will keep Lollapalooza in Chicago through at least 2021, and require C3 to pay millions in amusement and liquor taxes for the first time. It also will increase the ticket prices to concertgoers, according to Charlie Jones, co-owner of the Austin, Texas-based concert promoter.
Glad everyone is getting paid. Just wish it wasn't at my expense.

Yeah that's nice. Blame the city, which is only asking for their fair share, for rising ticket prices.

So that works out to about an extra $16 per person. The horror!

by everyone, do you mean the city, which includes us taxpayers?

if so, then yes, i agree with the decision.

if you then have to pay an extra dozen bucks because of it, i can sleep at night.

RIGHT--and now the city can use those funds to do absolutely nothing about crime/corruption.

Just once I'd like someone to explain where new funds are allocated
