Good to hear about Alpine!

I'm sure it will still be the last concert announced next year though!

As a Chicagoan who will not drink the “Wrigleyville is just as good if not better than a tailgate” kool-aid, this makes me happy.

The amphitheater/shed setting is a much better venue for Jimmy and his music, not just the tailgating, the whole overall vibe.

I was just at Alpine for Zac Brown this past weekend. It really did a lot to reinforce how the people who say Wrigley is just as good (if not better) than Alpine are insanely wrong.

In my honest opinion, the people who think Wrigley is a better venue for Buffett than Alpine, are what I call the "Yellow Album Fans"
