I don't think anyone expected an early announcement. So they didn't book RRI or anywhere else , anticipating dates. Either that , or the Hotels were catching on. I may take a long Weekend on The Cape.

This will mean back to back Saturdays at Great Woods for me, 8/10 Buffett, 8/17 Train/GooGoo Dolls... :D

No ticket prices yet but posted an 8 ticket limit. In the past the limit has been 4 so this may make getting lawn tickets much more difficult.

I'm doing Queen the weekend before and getting a room wasn't too simple. The new Hampton Inn was already sold out.

The cheapest i saw on Hotel.com was 2 place in Milford , about 20 miles away. LaQuinta was 95.00 and a Best Western was 117.00. If gates open at 1 like a couple of years ago. I'll probably drive up that AM. or i may Thursday to The Cape for a couple of days.

I thought Hootie was touring with Barenaked Ladies this year. Are they playing together of back to back days?
