Why do I have a feeling it could be Fenway this year!! Just a gut feeling , with so many artist doing the baseball parks now , him Wrigley , JT , Billy Joel and others , more seats equal more dollars. Also , what happened to cutting back? So far he hasn't given any indication. Easter is April 16th , my question now is , will there be Florida dates , cutting it close to plan , especially with airfare.

I hope the stage is well marked. I can't take another Australian verse.

The Saturday dates already booked for Great Woods shows this summer 2017.

Saturday 6/3/2017 Dierks Bentley, Cole Swindell & Jon Pardi
Saturday 6/24/2017 Luke Bryan & Brett Eldredge
Saturday 7/15/2017 Rod Stewart & Cyndi Lauper
Saturday 8/5/2017 Brad Paisley, Dustin Lynch, Chase Bryant
Saturday 8/12/2017 Lady Antebellum, Kelsea Ballerini & Brett Young

That leaves Saturday, June 10, 17, July 1, 8, 22, 29, August 19, 26 open! Odds are he won't play June 10 (too early), or July 1, 8 (too close to July 4th) so that leaves 5 potential Saturday dates open. Last year he did the 3rd weekend in August and August 19th is open.

Patrick , Also check any Sat. dates open at Fenway , The weeks that they are doing the concerts there. Not saying he will play there , but always a possibility.

I think we can knock June 10 off the list. Appears that will be Frisco.

I asked my season ticket rep and she said if any other concert is announced for Fenway it should be Drake. But added the disclaimer, it's always a fluid situation planning concerts at Fenway Park.

Cross off all of the July dates as Jimmy has skipped the month of July the last 2 or 3 tours. Also Jimmy's new musical "Escape to Margaritaville" opens in California on May 9th so it would not be surprising if he switches the tour around and opens on the west coast to stay close to the musical during its initial run

August 19th seems like it would be the date, esp if he is in Frisco in June.

That day may not work for me , if the Annual Golf Tournament I play in for a friend ( passed away from ALS) is that date.

Wrigley has also been rumored for June 17th. I guess it's that time of the year when we play " Guess your Tour Date".
