Re: Buffett and The Eagles

Some dates released this morning. It appears the Eagles are touring with others depending on the date. In addition to Buffett they will also play with James Taylor for a few shows and Chris Stapleton and a few shows alone. The Boston date lists just the Eagles so I hope this keeps a Buffett GW stop ...

Re: Buffett and The Eagles

Yes. Prob not WPB again but Tampa or Orlando for sure. I'd even consider Frisco, Texas again. I had fun down there. I had been to every Frisco show until last year, and I missed this year's too. If he plays there next year, I think I'm going back. I went to Wrigley Field back in July but I'm over s...

Re: Buffett and The Eagles

I'll never attend a concert at Gillette Stadium again. If he doesn't do GW in 2018 then it's a road trip somewhere for one of his solo shows.

Re: Buffett and The Eagles

If they both do full sets that means a much earlier start time because of curfew regulations so that means Buffett goes on about 5pm plays to 715-730 then a break for stage changeover and the Eagles go on at 8-815 and play until 10:30... I'm not alone when I say I go to Buffett now for 50% tailgatin...

Re: Buffett and The Eagles

Tommy is correct, the Eagles are not going to be an opening act. Even at best a co-headlining tour would still mean less of each performer. Buffett is not going to do a 2 hour set regardless so you'd get 12-14 songs. Right now it is listed as a handful of shows so lets hope that handful stays away f...

Re: Buffett and The Eagles

I hate even the thought of this happening. I'm not an Eagles fan but no matter who Buffett is paired up with with him not as the lead act I wouldn't like. What would he do like 12-14 songs? He'd have to cater to the Eagles crowd so you're get the Yellow album along with 5 O'Clock, Knee Deep, BEG... ...

Re: Is this how you show appreciation to your fans?

No coolers and no prepacked food. But if you buy a sausage, chicken, steak etc sandwich outside from a street vendor you can bring that into the park. The vendor will wrap the foil for you to make it easier. They even advertise that you can bring it inside so the Red Sox and street vendors may have ...

Re: Is this how you show appreciation to your fans?

I'm surprised and venue with let outside beverages or food in , just because the money they lose , you figure 30,000 people ( I know not everyone will buy one , hypothetically speaking) at 6.00 that's 180,000.00 profit probably is around 160,000.00 just on water. If I was a venue owner , and I'm th...

Tommy is 100% correct. It's like owning a bar, the regular customers don't make you money, the new customers do.

Re: Jones Beach concert not sold out

I think 75% of the people who go to a show want to hear the same 12-14 songs each time. The rest would prefer more deeper cuts and less covers so he is catering to the majority. Just based on the reaction of the crowed when Cheeseburger, 5 O'Clock starts playing or any other of the standards the cro...

Re: Who's going to Great Woods, August 19, 2017?

^^ For some of the smaller places this will keep people out of their lots but for super markets it won't. All you'd have to say is you need to go into the store shopping which most people do before going into the show and as a customer they won't turn you away. Plus the Shaw's lot is so big I don't ...

Re: Who's going to Great Woods, August 19, 2017?

Except traffic wasn't really an issue last week, at least when we got there about 1pm. There was a little traffic but we were in and parked about 15-20 after arriving in the GW area. I didn't find traffic any more or less an issue than year's past. The bigger issue could be people hanging out in par...

Re: Who's going to Great Woods, August 19, 2017?

Charge $25 per car/$50 per RV for an 9am-1pm arrival pre-pay, tack on an additional $5 for paying the day of for an early arrival and still make it free parking after 1pm. Give a percentage of the money collected back to the town of Mansfield. If they get 1,000 cars and 20 or so RVs arriving early t...

Re: Who's going to Great Woods, August 19, 2017?

Lots def opened before 1pm, we pulled in at 1pm and there was already several rows of tailgating already setup so they were in at least 20-30 min before 1pm.

And holy crap, getting out of that place at the end of the show, worst I have ever seen it.

Re: Who's Going To Jones Beach August 15?

I've been going to Buffett concerts for about 30 years and I've been to well over 100 shows. I don't think I've ever seen a parking lot that was as trashed as Jones Beach was after the show last night, it was disgusting. Piles of garbage all over the place, empty beer cans and bottles strewn about ...

Re: Who's Going To Jones Beach August 15?

Weather looks awful. We bailed out over the weekend on going. Too much going on this week to be away for 3 days. Looking at the radar map it looks like it was a wise decision. Not even my pink err magenta umbrella would have helped today.

Tommy, are you saying at the Red Roof Inn Friday?
Hopefully he''ll be there! I need to mooch out of his cooler.

He'll be there but late on Saturday. He is golfing that day so he'll be there after he finishes up his 18 holes.
