As I noted in the "News" section.......DMB is playing DTE June 9, then on June 11 is a show featuring the B-52's & Cyndi Lauper. Seems surprising DTE would go 3 nights in a row, especially with the Pre & Post Concert mayhem a JB show has.

With Jack Johnson coming into DTE June 18 wouldn't a June 17th JB date make it a real Beach scene that week??!!

But I certainly won't b**** if the June 10th date is true!!!

Take this for what it's worth I called DTE today they would neither confirm or deny Jimmy for june 10th. But told her we would be coming from out of town for the show if it is happening and asked if it would be a good idea to start looking for a hotel close by for that day. She suggested that would "be a very good idea" and to call back next week. There may be an announcement by then. also show is listed on Vividseats.com Just thought I would share this.

Ok, so we're expecting 6"-10" of snow later today and tomorrow. The only thing keeping me from going insane is the thought of a JB show at "Pine Knob". C'mon Jimmy confirm it....

Hmm.. So if this does turn out to be true, can anyone tell me how to convince the husband that we need to go to 2 shows this year?

2? Why stop there? :lol:

...because two are twice as much fun as one?
...because it's close to you?
...because it's only money, and you can't take it with you?
...because sometimes you just gotta keep the wife happy?
...because it's not September like his last trip to Michigan, and odds are we should have pretty good weather in June?

Considering the current state of our weather, I don't know if that last reason is very convincing. At the rate we're going, we'll be lucky if it's stopped snowing by then!

I'm just glad that we already have the Chicago tickets and hotel.
Toyota Park would have been a hard sell after already planning on our local venue show!
Detroit will be mandatory, I mean no hotel, no travel, etc.
The sequencing of the announcements will work in our favor!
I almost forgot, there hasn't really been an announcement yet :-?
