Jimmy Buffett Alpine Valley Show 2015 | Buffett Business Is Good

Jimmy Buffett 2015 Alpine Valley
Jimmy Buffett will play at Alpine Valley in 2015! Buffett songs will be sung by everyone in the audience on August 23. 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.

Dave Matthews Band Returns to Alpine Valley in 2015 | Dates Set for July

Dave Matthews Band 2015
Dave Matthews Band will return to Alpine Valley Music Theater this summer. The iconic group broke tradition in 2014, choosing to play at the Summerfest Marcus Amphitheater, in lieu of their nearly annual gig at one of Wisconsin’s premier music venues. It was the band's first show at the lakeside grounds in Milwaukee in 15 years, and the first time since 2001 that they did not play at Alpine.

This year, Dave Matthews Band has revealed that it will return to what front man Dave Matthews has called one of his favorite venues to play. The group will perform on July 25 and July 26 at Alpine Valley, a date that does not conflict with Summerfest, leaving open a possibility that the band may also play there in 2015.  

The announcement of Dave Matthews Band return to Alpine Valley was coupled with news of fellow arena-rockers Mötley Crüe's return to Wisconsin this summer. The metal band's brand of party rock will come to the BMO Harris Bradley Center on August 7.

KISS with Def Leppard Tickets | Last Minute Deals For Alpine Valley

Kiss with Def Leppard at Alpine Valley
It's hard to believe that the KISS - Alpine Valley show is just one day away.  When the show was announced way back in spring, it was one of the first concert announcements for Alpine Valley 2014. Now here we are, just a couple of weeks away from the fall season, with two shows left on the schedule. With that, we wanted to see what ticket prices were like for the upcoming show.  Where can you get the best deal on tickets for a couple of bands that happened to have sold tens of millions of albums over the decades.  Here is our short list of options.

Last Minute Kiss Ticket Deals For Alpine Valley - August 15

If you are going to use a ticket broker for your seats, we recommend going with a reputable company that is based in Wisconsin. Check these folks out for KISS tickets.  You can try your luck with the usual broker sites, but they might not get you your tickets on time.  The show is just one day away, so we suggest that you use the "E-ticket" delivery option.  The box office might still have a few tickets left, in sections that are far from the stage, but if you are just looking to get into the venue, that might be your best option. Be sure to allow yourself a lot of time to head out of the venue at the end of the night. Traffic is notoriously bad, if you stay for the encore. Enjoy the show Kiss fans!

Wiz Khalifa Alpine Valley Show Set For August 9 | Under The Influence Tour 2014

Coming to Alpine Valley on August 9th 2014 is the Under The Influence tour. Four top selling rap stars have gotten together to bring you some of the best that music genre has to offer. Check out Young Jeezy, Rich Homie Quan, Ty Dolla Sign, and Wiz Khalifa all on one stage.  Opening for the big names listed include none other than Mack Wilds, Sage The Gemini and more.

The Under the Influence tour starts on July 24, in Scranton Pennsylvania, and ends one month later in Irvine California, at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater. This short tour is sure to sell out.

Wiz Khalifa has been hitting stages across the United States for the past eight years. Starting with the debut album titled, Show and Prove, Khalifa was the "one to watch" as his style grew into itself. That was 2005, and by 2007, Warner Brothers had snapped him up.  After two years of struggling with the release date of his next album, Khalifa parted ways with Warner Brothers, and looked to Atlantic Records for the support he needed. By 2010, Wiz was showing up on magazine covers, and could be found collaborating with all the hottest rap stars currently on tour.  He's touring to support his 2013 effort, titled "Blacc Hollywood."
