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 Alpin...

Re: CHICAGO!!!

United Center is a very good place for a concert, but Buffett in July should be outside. I’m gonna double dip Indy and Chicago. Uhhhh.. Chicago outside in July can be the most awful temperature/humidity. Your mileage may vary. (been there for a show in 2003, and used to live in the suburbs). To eac...

Re: CHICAGO!!!

This is better than Wrigley and better than Northerly Island, but not as good as Tinley and nowhere close to as good as Alpine. FWIW, Tinley is booked for 7/18, so it seems like they wanted a ~20k seater and not a ~40k seater like Alpine. There are multiple posts on the Margarillas Twitter saying th...

Rage Against The Machine announced that they will be playing Alpine on Friday 7/10.
Rage at Alpine sounds pretty damn amazing.

All I know is if we get saddled with Wrigley again I’m just going to Indi instead. Wrigley is ruining live music.

Green Day/Weezer/Fall Out Boy show. Wonder if they'll make a play for JB & The Reefers & try & package them up wi...

Re: 2019 Son of A Son of A Sailor High Tide Tour Set list Tracker

The IG story for last night’s show has clips of the band playing Great Heart in sound check. That one has been packed away since Tiki Time Tour so I’m hoping we see it resurrected soon. I’m pretty worn out of Love and Luck.

Never been there but curiosity is indeed killin' Dr. C.

I'm looking for top 2-3 reasons why you say yea or nay......keeping in mind I'm looking at ...

I’ve heard him close with tin cup multiple times.
We’ve gotten Tin Cup in Chicago at least four times in the past decade or so:

2011 (with no vocals after a power outage)
2012 (mid-show)
2016 (encore)
2017 (encore)

According to Radio Margaritaville- during rehearsals Jimmy and CRB were working up “Holiday” and an Irish cover they didn’t name for the High Tide tour
Well that’s a fun song. Beats hearing something like Knees of My Heart every single tour.

Re: Tour Name - High Tide Tour?

This came up on the M’ville podcast that came out yesterday or today. It’s SOASOAS: High Tide. One reason for keeping the SOASOAS name was because there’s little overlap between the 2018 and 2019 tour stops.

Re: Who's Going to Alpine Valley?? 07/20/2019

Interesting question... if you've gone to a concert at Alpine Valley and you realize that you are in no condition to drive safely, can the venue legally force you to leave?  Or can you 'sleep it off' in your vehicle in the parking lot until later the next morning? Or do they have to offer you a "Sa...

Re: Who's Going to Alpine Valley?? 07/20/2019

Since Detroit is the Tuesday before, maybe Cincinnati? Can't imagine a Chicago show on a Thursday, and right before Alpine either Or Indi. The only reason why I’m sorting of buying the “Chicago will be skipped” rumor is that there are usually two months between Chicago and Alpine. So unless Chicago...

I may wait to buy tickets. In 2016, I bought tickets about a third of the way up section 203 on the Sunday before the show for $30 each. I’ve read something on here about Ticketmaster releasing seats in waves so maybe there’s something to that...

Re: Alpine Valley and Detroit 2019 (Is it too early for this thread?)

I was just at Alpine for Zac Brown this past weekend. It really did a lot to reinforce how the people who say Wrigley is just as good (if not better) than Alpine are insanely wrong.
