I'm an anal retentive freak and I save all my ticket stubs. I went to my first Buffett show at Jones Beach in 1988 and I've been to all but 4 since then. I just went through my tickets from past shows, there have only been 3 on Saturdays - 1988, 2004 and 2006. I wouldn't hold my breath for a Saturday show this year. With Boston on Thursday I think if there's a Jones Beach show it's more likely to be on Tuesday than Saturday.
what I really mean . . . I wish you were here

I was at the 2004 and 2006 Saturdays. To be honest, Thursday the 16th (stil open on both calendars) would be just as good as a Saturday

Some rudimentary sleuthing today on the Jones Beach website seems to indicate a 2018 Buffett show is likely planned. All the shows listed have the same basic URL structure, artist name followed by jonesbeach.com/ so Ozzy is http://ozzy.jonesbeach.com/ and Poison is http://poison.jonesbeach.com/ etc... I tried http://buffett.jonesbeach.com/ and it redirects you to the list of shows at Jones Beach. But if you try other names who are not performing at Jones Beach in 2018 and have not performed there in a while like Pink http://pink.jonesbeach.com/ or Seal http://seal.jonesbeach.com/ the links are dead (page can not be displayed wording) no redirect. If you try a performer that played there last year that is not schedule to play this year like Train http://train.jonesbeach.com or Journey http://journey.jonesbeach.com you get redirected to a page that reads "Sorry, this event has expired." Buffett played there last year and when using the http://buffett.jonesbeach.com/ URL you don't get the event expired link you get the redirect. My conclusion is they have the Jones Beach Buffett 2018 page in development for his 2018 show which is why it is not a dead link and why it is not showing the date has expired.

But I have no idea when that date is, so much to do about nothing. My Guess, is it will be within the first 12 days of August.

I wonder if they don't or haven't done a Sat show in quite some time is. LI traffic , and beach traffic would be a nightmare on a Sat. Just a guess. I saw were someone posted it could be Aug. 2nd.

I'm sorry but that's pretty cool detective work.. I'm sure you're right about him playing.
My bet is August 16th since it's open on both schedules
Honestly a late summer Thursday at Jones Beach is just as good as a Saturday.
How about the 16th AND the 18th???

I normally make the trip to Boston every year but I'm not going to Fenway Park.

It's not a convenient date but thinking of Cincinnati, its a GREAT tailgate

With the Jiffy Lube show on Aug. 4, there's no way I'm doing this. I'm driving up to Virginia so the only way I could make both shows is to drive up to Long Island, then to Virginia on my way back to SC. Since I always stop about halfway when I drive to NY, I'd be going SC-VA-LI-VA-SC. An extra day on the way up, probably an extra day or 2 on LI to see some friends from when I lived there. That trip would blow my travel budget sky high.

Pretty sure we are in on this one. We have gone to Great Woods every show for the last 8 years--disappointed he is not returning, but excited for a new adventure. Any advice on hotels would be great! Also, when can we start our tailgate? Any info would be great!

Great job! Seriously, if there was ever a "Buffett Detective Work of the Year" award, I'd nominate you for that one. I'm always amazed at how smart Jimmy's fans are (or perhaps it's more a case of how badly I'm the weak link in the herd, lol!) Either way, I tip my parrot hat to ya, that was kewl! :D

I booked two hotels from Wednesday - Friday one at the Best Western Bar Harbour Inn and one at the Freeport Inn, the former is $150 per night, the latter is $165 per night. Both are about the same distance to Jones Beach. I'm not 100% sure I can make this show, I have too see how my work calendar shapes up for the summer but if I can make I'll just pick one of the two hotels and cancel the other. Last time I saw Buffett at Jones Beach we stayed at the Best Western Bar Harbour Inn and it was fine. And we started tailgating at 8am the lots are also part of the beach parking so they open very early I believe.
