Dead tickets for this summer event are available now. After the successful tour last summer, the guys have once again decided to hit the road.
Phil Lesh decided to back off on this upcoming tour, but John Mayer was more than happy to take his place. The group played one last show in 2015, and felt the urge to keep on playing. Just a few weeks later, they announced a small summer tour. Bob Weir was the one who announced this upcoming tour, confirming their appearance at Bonnaroo. Shortly after that, an entire tour was planned.
Who will play the Dead shows on this tour? Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, John Mayer, Bob Weir, Oteil Burbridge, and Jeff Chimenti all agreed to play on this tour. See it live at Alpine Valley this summer!

two shows, July 1st and 2nd, at the East Troy venue known for some of the best shows in Midwest. This is the first show announcement for Alpine, with more to follow.
Dave Matthews DiscographyThe Dave Matthews Band is known for many things, but one item that stands out is their enormous number of live album releases. To date, the band has put out sixty live albums, and we're sure that some of the most active fans have every single one of those disks. In fact, the band has been around for over twenty years and in that time the have made just eight studio albums. What's the most popular album for DMB? Most would say that their 2001 release titled "Everyday," which hit number one on the Billboard charts the year it came out. Their 1998 album, titled "Before These Crowded Streets" also made it to number one in the United States, but they didn't have the same chart success in other countries that "Everyday" did. Oddly enough the band's 1996 album "Crash" had the most sales of all eight studio efforts, but charted in just three countries.

Tickets for the show are on sale this week. This is the third concert announcement for the outdoor music venue.
Jimmy Buffett is more than a musician. He’s built an empire that has made one of the richest musicians in America. It’s been two years since he’s released an album, and that one was titled “Songs from St. Somewhere.” The titles of the album lead people to believe that he’s still mining the same “gold” from decades past. “Something ‘Bout a Boat, Einstein Was a Surfer, Too Drunk to Karaoke, Tides, The Oldest Surfer on the Beach” are built on well worn themes that Buffett seems to enjoy. Prior to Songs from St. Somewhere, he released three live albums. In fact, seven of the last Buffett albums released were live albums. That’s not to imply that Mr. Buffett is resting on his musical laurels. He’s just been very busy building restaurants, casinos, hotels, and vacation destinations.
Jimmy Buffett Hotels
Jimmy Buffett has turned “Margaritaville” into a destination. He’s got Pigeon Forge Hotel in the Smokey Mountains, and that hotel looks pretty amazing. The Hollywood Beach Resort Hotel in Florida plans to open in the summer of 2015. It won’t be the biggest hotel in the area, but it’s certainly going to dwarf its neighbors. His Pensacola Beach resort was once a Holiday Inn. Hurricane Ivan destroyed that hotel, but Buffett is hoping for better luck.
Jimmy Buffett Restaurants
There are 28 Margaritaville restaurants at this time. It all started thirty years ago when Buffett opened one location in Key West. Half of the 28 locations are owned by a company from Brazil, and they plan to expand the chain in the United States.
It seems like a fan could completely immerse themselves into a Buffett themed life, staying at his hotels, eating his food, and listening to his music. To think that they could live the party lifestyle is probably a dream come true for some “Parrotheads.”
Buffett the Author and Best Seller
With seemingly endless energy, Buffett has also penned a few books in his day. His devoted fans have pushed his three books to the best seller list. “Tales from Margaritaville” spent months on top, followed up with A Pirate Looks at Fifty, a effort of non-fiction that covers the days surrounding his milestone fiftieth birthday.

The Phish 2015 tour dates include a two night stop at Alpine Valley. The band will embark on the tour during the second half of the summer, starting with a tour date in Bend, Oregon. Trey Anastasio will be joining the remaining members of the Grateful Dead for their reunion shows in early July, and that might explain why the tour starts almost three weeks after that weekend of shows. Phish is on their 31st year of making music, supporting their catalog of twelve albums. When will Phish make it to East Troy? Their Wisconsin dates are August 8th and 9th.
