It’s estimated that Wellington picked up an extra nine million dollars because of Elton’s December 6 concert.

Most of the 3,500 hotel rooms were full, and many were charging at peak event rates–a premium of up to 25% on room rates.

One was reportedly selling rooms late for $600 a night.

Bars, restaurants and stores also did a brisk business.
