Nope - at least as of earlier this week - I have a friend who works the VIP lounge and emailed the scheduled artists (no dates tho) - JB wasn't there. :( I had heard there was some "bad blood" with JB and Walnut Creek - but don't remember where or the issues. I hope the RBC rumors or true - or maybe he would play one of the ball parks?

Come on RBC center, please! I have my Philly date, I need the Carolina, AC, and Vegas dates and I'm set for the tour!

Please let dates for Charlotte come out this week. Suely he won't skip us again. I am perfectly happy to travel to a show but more of our friends will go if it is close to home.

I have a feeling we'll hear something very soon please

May and June are still wide open - there should be an ATL date following Jazzfest and that would be the perfect time to work in the Carolina leg of "The Year of Still Here"

We're still here too Jimmy :wink: :pirate:

We are really hoping for a Charlotte date. I hope that Jimmy doesn't skip us again this year. Our biggest problem is that Verizon is the only venue option that we have now since neither the Bobcats Arena or Bank of America Stadium have dedicated parking.

Rumor was that JB and Walnut Creek had a falling out over concessions money. Most places offer him a cut of consessions, which at one of his show's is MAJOR money in beer sales. Walnut Creek decided not to offer any % of concessions, and he hasn't been back since.

Hard to blame him - when every other venue offers a % and one doesn't...Ever since there hasn't even been as much as a hint of him going to Walnut Creek, only RBC Center and Charlotte...

Jimmy, come to Verizon. We had a ball there back in 2006. RBC is indoors (no fun), give us 2 dates at Verizon in CLT!

Didn't we do this last year? Hope and hope and hope till the very last possible bit of hope was gone :(

I could see Durham happening, I saw the Rolling Stones there a few years ago, played Wallace Wade Stadium, where Dook plays football...Pretty cool 'stadium' show , but its not too big.
