Why Wrigley, seriously. Other than it being there, the northside sucks for having concerts. No tailgating, bars cost an arm and a leg and when you live far south of there just getting there is a pain. Hopefully Alpine will have a date.

Heard the ticketmaster ad on Milwaukee radio this morning. I wouldn't hold my breath for an Alpine show, the venues have an agreement with each other.

This is just karma coming back to bite everybody who complains about Tinley. Wrigley sucks.

I went to Wrigley in 2005 and again last year. I think I'll find something else to spend my entertainment dollars on in July this year.

Still waiting on Buffett in Cincinnati. For the people in Chicago come on down . Best tailgating on the circuit. I still believe there are people here from the football game , where the Bears stomping the Bengals butts.

The other wrigley shows were great.

I am surprised he is playing there again though. It seems like these bigger shows are a way for him to scale back his touring. It allows for people in those areas to come to one place. I get it.

Also, it seems he is tired of tour names and is going to just use I don't know from here on out

For those saying this will be badly attended, there are about 4,500 tickets available on StubHub from $60 and up. Not making any predictions, but that is about on par with last year's sellout so far (in mid-February).
Past Concerts:
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)
