So with alpine going this week and olympia having another presale this week sure looks like its going to be another week at least.

Hoping this means ZBB is still in the mix

Breaking news -detroit or Michigan. anything?

Post by olympiatickets »

Breaking news

Inside sources have told me from high up that due to haggling over negotiations and lack of hotel rooms (July 26th) in Detroit that Jimmy will be passing on Michigan this year. Too much going on with availability at CoPa with hotel rooms, and then PSE jumping in with DTE but haggling over profits.

Sorry folks better look out of state this year

Well, that post is a little suspicious. Hopefully not true, but I think it's odd an announcement hasn't come yet. Instead it's been Bocelli, Jesus Christ Superstar ticket sales. Alpine Valley in WI announced recently so not many dates left in the summer leg.

Oh geez, this is what I was afraid of..... I don't want to believe that Jimmy is skipping Michigan but that post made me wonder why we haven't heard anything yet. Please Jimmy say it ain't so?

Can we start a petition to bring him to Michigan this year, or has anyone heard different rumors, because I don't want to believe a post that came out of nowhere, but does have some compelling points to it.....

Did u guys just join the interwebs? You got trolled hard by someone who just took a bunch of complaints from this thread or worries and fooled you. I have my suspicions about who it is but won't post it. Lol

Anyway amo and mauitim have good sources and have said from day one its a done deal. I posted how the real Olympia operates just be patient.

I have tickets to Cleveland. The only way I'm going to Detroit is if he announces Pine Knob.

Hey people,

I know that there may be reasons that JB may not come to Detroit this year. But lack of hotel rooms would not be one of them. If an artist is planning a tour they book rooms etc. WAY in advance. I live in the 4th largerest city in N. America, Toronto (only Mexico City, NYC, and LA are bigger) and have known people "in the know". I knew of concerts here months before they were announced. With a BIG artist like Jimmy I can't see last minute negociations(sp?) getting in the way either. If he is not coming is must be something else. I do argee however that the annocement is very late in coming.

Kind of interesting/odd. If its the 12th you've got Cleveland on June 24, then a break until the show in W.V on the 5th of July...then a break until the 12th at Comerica....then off until the 17th at Woodstock.
If it's the 26th at Comerica you've got Cincy on the 21st then a break until the 26th.
Lots of room for additional shows during the downtime....or maybe just more bounce back time for the band?. [smilie=noeyedear-shrugging.gif]
