For reference, and because I am waiting for a meeting to start, last year the October date was announced on April 6 and in 2015 it was announced on May 8.

Just booked both middle weekends in October. The April show was light, much of which was due to security letting people in, but looking forward to October!

Now that both the college and pro football schedules are out I am really hoping to be in Vegas for the weekend of the 14th. Hopefully we know more soon.

My wife and I went to the Vegas show, it was pretty good, not my favorite setlist but pretty solid...but it was a good show. I could tell there was not a great demand for tix so waited and waited and waited and ended up with really good seats, maybe below face, not 100% sure. One thing was obvious though, the row in front of us was all security folks from either the arena or the company/casino. The vibe was pretty dead, it never really got going, even during Fins, I kind of looked around the arena and it was probably the least participation and enthusiasm for that Ive seen at the dozen or so shows I have been to.

Glad we went had a great time, when the tour list first came out, this was one of what 10 dates? So we thought he was really scaling back and so we decided lets go..as mentioned by others he did close the show with "see you back here in October" so we might try it again, it was our first Vegas show we were hoping for a little more "pregame" if you will. We knew there was no pool party but we went to Mville for dinner pre-show and it was pretty dead in terms of concert goer types.

The regular party at the pool, while not the pre-party in the alley of years ago, is pretty decent. This year the country music awards had the pool so no preparty, but in October it should be back to the same deal.

With a San Diego show being announced today for 10/21, a prime possible date is eliminated. I don't see him playing Vegas on any other day besides a Saturday and he has usually closed the tour here. Perhaps 10/28 is a possibility? I would imagine we'll find out soon as all West Coast dates should start rolling out.

I could not agree more. He has done Halloween weekend shows in Vegas before.

I disagree, the last 2 years he has only played the 17th in 2015, 15th in 2016. I predict he will announce a show on the 14th.

I agree that the 14th is a more likely date than the 28th. It's been a while since it has fallen on the last weekend in October.

I've been checking hotel rates periodically since I got home from the April 1 show. The Flamingo, and a few other places, is over $200/night for the first 3 weekends in October and pretty close to $200 the last weekend. If rates stay that high, I don't care what weekend he plays Vegas because I won't be there. I'll wait for the NHL schedule to announced, look for low rates when the Golden Knights have some home games and go out to Vegas so I can go to a hockey game or 2 instead of a Buffett concert. :lol:

I just booked Thursday through Sunday in a fab exec the weekend of the 28th for $300 total including taxes and resort fees. I get a little bit of a break because of my Total Rewards play, but the 28th is cheaper than the 14th. Thursday through Sunday over the 14th is a hair over $400.

Yea this Vancouver date really throws a wrench into plans for another Vegas show. Hope it's not midweek, although that would be better than no show at all.

Any guesses as to what the recently announced Vancouver and San Fran dates do for a potential October Vegas show? Maybe Saturday the 28th is now more likely than the 14th.

More likely than the 14th but less likely overall.

When will we hear? Keep looking to see if Amo was the last post, then we will know. Hoping for the 28th as that is my birthday! 😈

I'm starting to come to terms with the idea that he's not coming to Vegas. I am holding out hope but not holding my breath.
