Look at the Budva concert last year. Promoters reportedly guaranteed Madonna $5 million for the show (according to reports from the newspapers there), and they put 65,000 tickets up for grabs when they first went on sale.
The result? The show sold 47,524 tickets and made $3.46 million which means the promoters probably lost money on the deal, but they still held the show.
By the way, the Budva concert only sold 10,000 tickets in its first week. And by two months later at showtime it had hit 47,524? So, I suppose anything can happen.
It's also interesting to note that her show at Budva was the highest attended and grossing concert ever held at Jaz Beach. She doubled what the Rolling Stones about a year prior. It certainly seems like 5 million would have been a lot for just a performance fee. I imagine that they were entitled to cuts of other things. I would also like to add that the success of a concert isn't soley on the boxscore. Yes it's a big part of it but attendence is equally important. It's not just the promoter the invests in the show. It's sponsers for product visability on the posters for the concert months prior and hotels and resorts. I mean the money to pay her doesn't come from one source. That is why it is really hard for them to bring the show to none Western markets. Madonna and the show are both expensive and a lot of people have to be on board for it to work. They need multiple people investing in it. So even if Madonna was paid 5 million for Budva and the gross was over 3 million it's not nessessarily at a loss. Given it being the highest attended event in Jaz Beach, Budva I would imagine that a lot of people made money on the retail, products that were encompassed in advertising, resorts/hotels. Concerts are very multi-dementional, there are a lot of things to consider. Especially when it's a big event like Madonna. It's not the same as selling tickets to coupld thousand people at a club/theatre gig.

That's very true. I believe Budva's show was actually sponsored by the government, so they may have seen returns in other areas (tourism, hotels, etc.), but I don't know how much they would've gotten from peripherals. Unless they just sponsored it to help the economy there in general, which is not a bad idea. I guess if it worked out good for them she'll show up there again in the future.

If she wants to make this tour the "most successful ever" and possibly pay tribute to MJ then touring Turkey and Japan would go along way to making that happen. If she indeed extended to Japan maybe she will try to go ahead and hit Australia/New Zealand while she is at it.
