All I know is if we get saddled with Wrigley again I’m just going to Indi instead. Wrigley is ruining live music.
He definitely won't play Wrigley this year.

The Cubs schedule doesn't work out with the tour schedule

2013 - Alpine Valley

I hope Jimmy decides to end the summer at Alpine Valley in late August as he did for several years. It is always a blast and a great way to bring the summer celebrating to a close. If he plays Alpine on July 18 I will have to miss the show there as I just bought a three night pass to String Cheese Incident at Red Rocks that weekend.

Was emailing a contact over at Live Nation about possibly getting season or VIP tickets for Alpine Valley this summer.

The package he sent over to me stated that it includes the first 6 announced events.

Sounds to me like Alpine is going to have a busy summer
2012 - Chicago (Tinley Park)
2013 - Alpine Valley
2014 - Alpine Valley
2015 - Alpine Valley
2016 - Alpine Valley
2017 - Chicago (Wrigley Field)
2018 - Chicago (Wrigley Field)
2019 - Alpine Valley
2020 - COVID-19

Trying to rationalize that there will be an announcement for Alpine Valley this year. So, Jimmy has an album to promote and support and surely visiting the largest venue on his traditional tour stops is a must for sales purposes :wink:

I saw the Dave Matthews announcement as soon as I posted my last comment. My heart sank for Alpine Valley. I'm just waiting to hear the cancellation of Journey or re-scheduling to a city of Milwaukee location :cry:

For what it's worth, the last time Jimmy came out with new music, Alpine wasn't formally announced until May.

Keep the hope alive. Alpine wouldn't be selling season tickets if they only had one show all season

I think it would be far too easy to cancel the Journey gig and refund any season tickets sold...which is probably less than 10 :wink:
The Phish announcement just adds to the pessimism.

Trying to clutch at straws...
I see Phish have no Chicago/Milwaukee/Minneapolis/Iowa area dates so perhaps they will announce at Alpine date to address that market.

If past history is any indication, the longer we wait, I think the better off we are for an Alpine announcement.

We can look at past tours, and I don't think there has ever been a time in recent memory where Jimmy hasn't played in Chicago or at Alpine in the same year.

We know for whatever reason, the Alpine show always seems to be the last one announced. I really think July 18th at Alpine will be the date.

The prices are high, but the Democratic National Convention is in Milwaukee that week also.
During the week almost impossible to find hotel

That is true, but the convention ends on Thursday the 16th. Don't know how much spillover for hotels there would be on that following weekend.

For what it is worth, I have heard some rumblings that Jimmy might be playing Target Field in Minneapolis.
I know Apline is past the territory limit so there could be a show here and there. Just a thought
