Default Re: The price of concert tickets

So...from what I gather from the responses is either it's market demand (charge high and see if they'll buy) or it's fuel, insurances and the cost of doing business.

I've always wondered who sets the prices, the promoter or the band. I imagined the band charging a flat rate fee for a show and the promoter adjusts ticket prices to cover all expenses. Or does the bands' share of earnings fluctuate from venue to venue?
Major rock bands specifically.
