Alpine just announced Hootie and the Blowfish for Aug 23rd next year...

Given how Alpine usually likes to book shows together, am I wrong for thinking Buffett Aug 24th???

I'm all for Jimmy at Alpine on 8/24. Or any other summer date for that matter.

Barenaked Ladies are opening for this Hootie tour.

I would prefer 8/24 over Labor Day weekend again. But only time will tell.

Has anyone heard about a date for Detroit? Hopefully, he'll be back at Pine Knob again. It's such a great venue for both tailgating and the concert.

Someone on Facebook said that it is on a Tuesday at Pine Knob. Only post this guy ever made on the Detroit PHC facebook page in the almost year that was added. We will wait and see. I hope not Tues. as that means 3 days vacation.

Set on bringing my friend group to Alpine this year ... I (cautiously optimistically) figure it will be a Saturday, right? Once this board has some date rumors goin’, I might just go ahead and get a room! We all went to Wrigley and had a blast last year (despite what the naysayers were saying here, the place was absolutely packed and it was a great atmosphere and time), but I’m ready for a return to the amphitheater setting!
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
Friday 7/13/2018 - Chicago, IL (Wrigley Field)

Upcoming:
Saturday 7/20 - Alpine Valley!

I think a safe bet would be either 8/24 or 8/31

This could change but right now that's what it looks like. Won't know more until Alpine announces more concerts, and Jimmy starts releasing his dates.

Alpine has been announced for July 20th.

Detroit also announced for July 16th.

Sure feels weird being one of the first announced shows for the year

So pumped for this! A little worried about the logistics of Ubering to our hotel some eight miles away (definitely no drivers in our crew, LOL), but we’ll burn that bridge when we come to it. :)

So happy to return to Alpine!!

Looking for lodging for Alpine Valley. As usual, all nearby places seem to be full. Any suggestions or offers?
