Well Jimmy. Last year's concert was a home run. A Early sell out. The first Saturday concert in years. At 630am 2000 people were waiting to get into the parking lot. By 10am, 8 thousand people were already tailgating. Make it Saturday again. Where the term Parrot Head began. Fins Up

I was in Cleveland last week and the talk turned to Cincy. I love Cincy. I've smeared a lot of paint there.
If I wasn't fishing in this all day rain,I'd be home doing something stupid.

Have always went to Chicago/Indy/St Louis/Alpine, we are going to try and do Cincinatti this year.
Any hotel recommendations, same side of the river or over the river?

Riverbend music is just inside Ohio . The first exit in Ohio if you are going eastbound on 275 from Kentucky. If you want to stay away from most of the traffic. Stay in Northern Kentucky near the interstate 275. I live in northern kentucky. so if you are coming. post it here and I will tell you all the places good and close to stay. There is some hotels just up the road on 275 in Ohio from Riverbend Music also.

I have stayed at the Comfort Suites in New Port. Right across the street from the party store. Last year they had a special breakfast planned for the day after and lots of great decorations the day. Great atmosphere and usually many Buffett concert goers stay there.

Ideally was wanting to stay where a lot of Buffett fans are, the tailgating really starts in the AM?

Yep! The grass lots across from the park entrance open at 8. Last year was a special Saturday show. We lined up at 6:45 and barely got in.

Barely got in at 6:45 that is insane!
Does the lot not hold as many people as go to the concert?

It was JB"s fiftieth show and a Saturday. The grass lot is not huge, but is THE PLACE TO PARTY. There are huge lots to the west of Riverbend for those less fortunate. Check it on google maps.

You are correct. We got there at 745am . we were sent to the larger parking lot across the street. By 11am, the parking lot was already pack with tailgaters. There was 8 thousand people tailgating by 12 noon. Riverbend holds 21 thousand.

No Rumors Yet. I called River Bend and asked the receptionist if Jimmy Buffett was coming to RiverBend? She gave me prerehearsed response. She said. Log on to RiverBend web site or Margaritaville web site for information. I think he is coming. I just dont know when. He needs to get the dates out so people can start planning some summer vactions.

Saturday 6/28/2003 - East Troy, WI
Tuesday 4/17/2012 - Des Moines, IA
Saturday 7/25/2016 - Tinley Park, IL
Saturday 7/15/2017 - Chicago, IL (Wrigley Field)
Tuesday 5/22/2018 - Des Moines, IA

Upcoming:
Friday 7/13 - Chicago, IL (Wrigley Field)
