Re: Alpine Valley 2020

I'm not feeling confident about it - but going back to recent history when Jimmy still played Tinley (and even Bridgeview), they would typically hold off on announcing Alpine until Chicago tickets had a chance to sell first. I remember most years we'd get a Tinley date and then not know about Alpine...

Re: CHICAGO!!!

I've seen Madonna and Neil Diamond there. It's fine, but those concerts kinda don't compare to Jimmy. Jimmy just feels better in an outdoor amphitheater.

For that particular 2018 show, we were lined up outside the gates at I believe 1 pm and they finally let us in.

Re: Cincinnati 2019

No harm in booking ahead, I just make sure the room has free cancellation. I had every weekend in August booked at the hotel i usually stay at for Alpine and then just canceled them all when July was announced.

Re: Cincinnati 2019

7/18 is my assumption as well. Went ahead and booked my usual hotel just to be safe. Assuming he skips Indy again, that Thursday smack in the middle of Detroit and Alpine has Cincy written all over it. Bigger question is will he skip Chicago? Usually it gets announced well ahead and Alpine, so maybe...

Re: Buffett Songs you just don't want to hear anymore....

BEG and Southern Cross are the two most obvious. I’ll echo someone else with Pencil Thin and Grapefruit, although I could take them if they were just a little more infrequent. I’d love to permanently retire License to Chill as well. Otherwise, as much as I love Back Where I’d Come From when they do ...

Re: Wrigley Field 2018

Oh I’m sure it could be in the clause this year. I just know for certain that Wrigley did not sell out last year (I checked for tickets on the main website every single day right up until an hour before the show - it didn’t sell out). That being said, Indy is about a 3 1/2 hour drive from Chicago. D...

Re: Wrigley Field 2018

Just checked to see how sales are doing for the show, and now they added a "4 pack" ticket option. 4 tickets for just under $25 a piece :o :o :o The two posters going at each other are both in the right and both in the wrong...... Having said that., The above quote is the reason there is no Detroit...

Re: Wrigley Field 2018

There are pluses and minuses to every venue, I keep in mind this adventure must end at some point. Eventually he will stop touring. I make a point of going to as many shows each year as possible and making the best of where ever I am lucky enough to see a show. Enjoy the ride. I couldn’t agree more...

I'm flying in for this show and Chula Vista. Wasn't sure what to expect pre-show wise at these spots. Assuming no parking lot for the San Fran show?

Re: Margaritaville TV question

I actually record almost all of the live streams on my computer. I'm not at home to check right now, but can you recall anything about them that would help me see if I captured that part of the video? I don't think I have the entire pre-show, but I know I should have some of it at least.

Re: 06.16.2016 - Chicago, IL

No, he did not feature an album, nor did he play one off the "ten years since" list. It was just a typical set list show. That being said, I managed to record the audio of the entire thing, so if someone wants to post that on Jokelben or wherever, I'd be happy to help them get it!

I'll be there! Got tickets through the parrothead club. Hope they're not upper balcony, but it'll be a thrill just being in the room. Even better if he doesn't play the yellow album for this one!

Re: Jimmy taking a break from touring

I'm also of the mindset that this quote is out of context and being blown way out of proportion. I watched the Frisco show on MargTV and he did say "see you next year!" That's good enough for me.
