LiveNation & Aramark: sticking it to the customer one show at a time

Jones Beach: $6.50 for a bottle of water.
Great Woods: $6.00 for a bottle of water.

The same bottle of water that goes for $1 outside the venue. WTF?

LiveNation and Aramark should eat a bag of dicks.

UPDATE: I wrote to both companies asking for an explanation. If either or both write back, I'll post it.

UPDATE: Welcome, Aramark readers! I see you've discovered my blog. Would you care to explain why LiveNation allows your company to charge $6.50 for a bottle of water that retails for $1 outside the venue?

I don't know the details of the deal, but given the high commissions and/or investment expected by LiveNation in order to award the business, these are the prices required in order to make a profit. Same goes to the pricing at the ballparks...blame the customer...they make a lot more money than their food service provider does.
