Meet Author Tiffany Killoren
Saturday, July 18 @ Noon–1:30 PM
BAM Bookstore
Native Dubuquer Tiffany Killoren will read and sign copies of her new novel, Good Will. Four women learn to let go—and get back more than they ever expected. There’s no road map for what to do when your husband dies—when he jumps off a bridge to escape mistakes that he made, or even welcomed, into your lives. But Lily doesn’t need to consult a map for this particular part of her journey; she knows the way back to the small town she left behind. With a precocious seven-year-old who reminds her too much of his father tucked safely in the back seat, Lily leaves New York with everything she owns packed in a U-Haul, including memories that come in waves like fields along the highway, and an envelope she is too afraid to open. Once she settles in, she sifts through a box of things destined for the local thrift store—items from her past that will connect four women in unexpected ways and give them all the strength they need to move on. 555 JFK Rd. tiffanykilloren.com.

John moved to Nashville first to play in other bands and two years later, TJ joined him. It was then they formed Brothers Osborne as a duo that blends equal parts country and rock into one of the freshest, most identifiable sounds to come out of Nashville in recent years. The singer/songwriter siblings are three-time CMA Vocal Duo of the Year winners in addition to being named ACM Vocal Duo of the Year twice. Overall Brothers Osborne have collected four CMA and five ACM trophies including Video of the Year wins for their Top 10 GRAMMY-nominated Platinum single “It Ain’t My Fault”.
Brothers Osborne’s debut album PAWN SHOP was released January 2016 and has been certified Gold by the RIAA. PAWN SHOP features three GRAMMY-nominated tracks including “It Ain’t My Fault,” the Platinum Certified No. 1 smash hit “Stay A Little Longer,” as well as Top 25 hit “21 Summer.” Their sophomore album, PORT SAINT JOE, was nominated for Best Country Album at the 61st GRAMMY Awards and features the Top 40 GRAMMY-nominated singles “Shoot Me Straight” as well as “I Don’t Remember Me (Before You).” Brothers Osborne has previously toured with Chris Stapleton, Eric Church, Little Big Town, Miranda Lambert and more. In 2019 the duo embarked on a Headlining World Tour which hit over 40 markets including London, Toronto, New York and Los Angeles. The tour also included three sold-out nights at the famed Ryman Auditorium in Nashville which were recorded for their album, Live At The Ryman.

The Army Parachute Team the Golden Knights will be here and making jumps throughout the Tri-state area.

Blackberry Smoke
Sunday, August 30 @ 8 PM
Five Flags Center

Pigeonholing Blackberry Smoke has never been easy. Since emerging from Atlanta in the early ‘00s, the quintet—vocalist/lead guitarist Charlie Starr, guitarist/vocalist Paul Jackson, bassist/vocalist Richard Turner, drummer Brit Turner and keyboardist Brandon Still—has become known for a singular sound indebted to classic rock, blues, country and folk. This fluidity has paid off handsomely, in the form of two Billboard chart-topping country albums, 2015’s “Holding All the Roses” and 2016’s “Like an Arrow.” For good measure, the latter also topped Billboard’s Americana/Folk album chart. Their latest full-length release, 2018’s “Find a Light,” debuted as the best-selling Country and Americana/Folk album in the country, entered at #3 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and #2 on the Billboard Americana/Folk Albums chart. Blackberry Smoke’s special new EP, “Live from Capricorn Sound Studios,” will be released June 19 with a portion of all proceeds going to the Recording Academy’s MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund. Recorded earlier this year at Capricorn Sound Studios in Macon, GA, the project consists of six new versions of songs that have special ties to the historic studio and town and will be released as a lead up to the band’s anticipated “Spirit of the South Tour.” $34.50-$39.50. 405 Main St. 563-589-4258.

Brantley Gilbert
Saturday, September 12, 7 PM
Back Waters Stage, Q Casino
Top Hits Include: “Bottoms Up,” “One Hell of an Amen” and “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do”
Brantley Gilbert lives in Jefferson, Georgia rather than – like so many country stars — Nashville. It’s not that he’s not serious about his music, or his career, but somethings run deeper. Or as he sings in “Grown Ass Man” from his platinum Just As I Am, “I got a home.” That home is rich with life, truth, friends, history – and those are the raw materials that have made Gilbert one of only four country artists with back-to-back platinum certified albums.
For Gilbert, who won the 2014 American Music Award for Favorite Country Album for Just As I Am, every album is another chapter in the life the unrepentant good ole boy has led. Whether it’s raising hell, standing tall or bottoming out, Gilbert’s truth speaks to the heart of blue collar life in the 21st century: hard working, fun loving and deeply committed to the people he loves.
Tickets go on sale Wednesday, March 4 at 10 AM. Event held rain or shine. Tickets are not refundable. Ticket prices and lineup subject to change.

Catfish Cooley’s Nitro Comedy Tour
Saturday, September 12, 8 PM
Five Flags Theater
Rescheduled from April 18. Dubuque area comedy fans will be in for a Southern-fried treat this April when Five Flags Center plays host to Catfish Cooley’s NITRO COMEDY TOUR, the craziest comedy show in America. The show is produced by Bang Productions and features Andrew Conn with DJ Slim McGraw and is hosted by Gerard Haran. The NITRO COMEDY TOUR is produced by John Edmonds Kozma.
Comedian Catfish Cooley brings high energy comedy to his southern following with a punch. Don’t judge a book by its cover – he’s not just a guy drinking hot sauce and chugging whiskey, he’s a real storyteller with a positive message. He has more than three million fans across multiple social media platforms. Catfish Cooley’s NITRO COMEDY TOUR entertains these fans all over the country. Cooley has been featured on Tosh.0 and draws comparisons to Larry the Cable Guy as the happiest redneck SOB you ever did meet!
Cooley will be joined by comedian Andrew Conn, a Kentucky native, who recently started dominating the stage with his playful personality and comical facial expressions. Conn experienced a defining moment in his career when the NITRO COMEDY TOUR sold out the 2,500-seat Hard Rock Casino in Tulsa, OK. The crowd quickly recognized him as a rising superstar in comedy who resembles a redneck Jim Carrey. When Andrew isn’t busy sharing his offbeat, true-life experiences center stage, he’s sharing his comedic journey through unfiltered videos that are sure to make you laugh. Keep an eye out for Andrew Conn because he’s the next big star in comedy.
Dee Jay Slim McGraw was bred on music that’s slow roasted and deep fried like his Southern roots! Slim has opened for country stars Brett Eldredge, Lee Brice, Randy Houser, Dylan Scott, and shared the stage with the likes of The Chainsmokers, Calvin Harris, Nelly, and Flo Rida, among others. In Nashville, you can find him on Broadway playing at Jason Aldean’s Rooftop Bar, Luke Bryan’s 32 Bridge, and Florida Georgia Line’s FGL House. Back home in Charlotte, the non-stop DJ is a resident at Whisky River, owned by NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt, Junior. He was recently honored to perform at Dale Junior’s retirement party alongside Kid Rock, Cole Swindell, and Billy Currington.
Gerard Haran is a rising star in the New York City comedy scene, as well as a former minor league baseball player. Gerard is one of his kind – like a chubby, bearded unicorn…or something.

Insane Clown Posse – Wicked Clowns from Outer Space 2 Tour
Thursday, September 24, 7 PM
Five Flags Arena
Rescheduled from April 30. Insane Clown Posse, the pioneers of horrorcore hip hop, will perform in Dubuque for the very first time when they take the stage at the Five Flags Center on Thursday, September 24.
Founded in Detroit in 1989, the Insane Clown Posse, or ICP, quickly found an audience for their unique style of hip hop, called “horrorcore,” that blends supernatural and horror-themed lyrics with traditional hip hop beats. The group, comprised of founding members Shaggy 2 Dope and Violent J, have released more than fifty albums and collaborated with artists ranging from Three 6 Mafia to Vanilla Ice to Jack White.
In addition to their music, Insane Clown Posse, has also developed fans through other ventures, including producing and starring in a pair of feature films: “Big Money Hustlas” and “Big Money Rustlas.” They have also ventured into professional wrestling, contributing music to albums released by both the World Wrestling Federation and World Championship Wrestling in the late 1990s. ICP eventually formed its own wrestling promotion, dubbed Juggalo Championship Wrestling.
Fans of the group are known as “Juggalos.” According to the group, Juggalos come from all walks of life and often consider themselves a family. ICP live performances are typically marked by attending Juggalos spraying bottles of Faygo-brand soda at the stage. The annual festival for ICP fans, the “Gathering of the Juggalos,” has drawn as many as 20,000 attendees. Rappers such as Busta Rhymes, Ice Cube, and MC Hammer have all performed at various “Gatherings” since the year 2000.
Advance Ticket Price: $35.00*
Day of Show: $40.00*

Ashley McBryde
Sunday, October 4 @ 7 PM
Diamond Jo Casino Mississippi Moon Bar
Dubbed by NPR as “country music’s most exciting new country voice,” Ashley McBryde fearlessly lays it all on the line, and it’s that honest all-in approach that has led to The New York Times critic Jon Caramanica to opine that “the still beauty in her singing is impressive, but her easeful storytelling feels practically radical.” McBryde’s album showcases an artistic vision that proves her to be one of the genre’s keenest working storytellers, bringing unwavering honesty back into a pop-preoccupied genre. She’s been described as a combination of Bonnie Raitt, Lzzy Hale, and Loretta Lynn, and that’s not wrong: McBryde isn’t afraid to tell the truth, get raw and real and use the spirits of country, folk and rock when it serves her greater purpose. At three, she’d secretly pluck her father’s guitar like an upright bass, and after about the 17th time being caught, her father bought her a guitar of her own. When she was twelve, she played her very first composition for her parents and grandparents. Her first EP, the self-released 2016 Jalopies and Expensive Guitars was just a taste of what McBryde could do, and, on her full-length debut, she melds her songwriting chops with the vision of producer Jay Joyce, peppering her tales with a touch of guitar-driven rock fury – but offering plenty of room for her emotive, vulnerable twang to move softly through songs like “Girl Goin’ Nowhere,” which was written the morning that Guy Clark passed away. McBryde indeed played “Girl Goin’ Nowhere” at her Opry debut, and still performs it on stage to crowds that now sing along. Opening for Ashley is Adam Hambrick. As the son of a Baptist pastor, Adam’s musical roots are in the church, singing hymns with his family. They are in the country and bluegrass standards that his grandparents love, and they are in the pop hits that defined the 90s and 2000s. These are the influences that have guided Adam to write songs that have been recorded by Justin Moore, Miranda Lambert, Eli Young Band, Dan + Shay and more. 301 Bell St. 563-690-4758. moonbarrocks.com.

Cole Swindell’s “Down to Earth” Tour
Thursday, October 8, 7 PM
Five Flags Arena
Rescheduled from March 26. Country music chart-topper Cole Swindell will bring his “Down to Earth” tour to Five Flags Center on Thursday, March 26, marking the Georgia native’s first visit to Dubuque. The show features special guests Hardy and Trea Landon.
Swindell’s began his music career as a songwriter, penning hits for Luke Bryan, Thomas Rhett, Scotty McCreery, and Florida Georgia Line. He stepped out on his own in 2013, when he independently released his debut single “Chillin’ It.” “Chillin’ It” was a crossover hit , not only topping Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart, but also reaching the Top 30 of the publication’s pop chart.
Swindell followed up that success with the release of his self-titled debut LP in early 2014. The disc was pushed to platinum certification by a string of additional hit singles, including two Country Airplay chart-toppers: “Hope You Get Lonely Tonight” and “Ain’t Worth the Whiskey.”
Swindell’s subsequent releases have also found their way to the top of the charts, with nine of his singles reaching the #1 or #2 position on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart. Swindell was also named the New Artist of the Year by the Academy of Country Music at its annual awards in 2015, and received a nomination for a similar award from the County Music Association.
Swindell will be joined a pair of rising country singers. Hardy released his debut album “Hixtape, Vol. 1” this past September and his debut single, “Rednecker,” has already moved into the Top 30 of both Billboard’s Country and Country Airplay charts. Meanwhile, Trea Landon is currently developing a following online and through his live shows. He’s toured with the likes of Luke Combs and Riley Green and has more than 200,000 monthly listeners on Spotify, where he’s been featured on the “New Boots” and “New Music Nashville” playlists.

Air Supply
Friday, October 9, 7:30 PM
Five Flags Arena
Rescheduled from March 27. For the first time in nearly 38 years, legendary pop group AIR SUPPLY will return to the Five Flags Center! AIR SUPPLY formed in 1975 when Graham Russell and Russell Hitchcock met during rehearsals for a stage production of “Jesus Christ Superstar” in Australia. After mild success in Australia in the late 1970s, the group broke out in the United States in 1980 with the release of their album ‘Lost in Love,’ which sold more than three million copies. They followed that up with two more platinum albums – 1981’s ‘The One That You Love’ and 1982’s ‘Now and Forever’ – plus their gold-certified self-titled effort in 1985.
AIR SUPPLY was one of the most successful groups of the early 1980s on the singles charts. They hit #1 in 1981 with “The One That You Love” and reached the Billboard Top 10 more than a half-dozen other times, with signature songs like “All Out of Love,” “Lost in Love,” “Even the Nights are Better,” and “Making Love Out of Nothing At All.” In addition, the group reached the Top 40 of the Adult Contemporary chart fifteen times, most recently in 2010 with both “Dance with Me” and “Faith in Love.”
AIR SUPPLY last graced the Five Flags Center stage in July of 1982, while supporting “The One That You Love.” That show followed another Five Flags performance by the group just ten months earlier. The two shows drew a combined crowd of more than 6,600 people!
Ticket Prices: $98.00 – $42.00*

Midwest Spring Jam with Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Twista, and Do or Die
Saturday, October 10, 8 PM
Five Flags Arena
Rescheduled from March 14. Five Flags Center’s next hip hop showcase, “Midwest Spring Jam,” will feature a trio of popular Midwestern acts. Headliner Bone Thugs-N-Harmony will be joined by guests Twista and Do or Die. Bone Thugs-N-Harmony has been ranked among the greatest rap groups of all time. The Cleveland-based quintet debuted in 1994, shortly after Eazy-E signed them. The following year, they released their breakout album, “E. 1999 Eternal,” which topped the Billboard albums chart. The album contained the hits “1st of tha Month,” “East 1999,” and “Tha Crossroads,” which would become the group’s best-performing single. It topped Billboard’s Hot 100, Rap, and R&B charts in the summer of 1996. Twista has been one of the pre-eminent names in the Chicago hip hop scene for more than a quarter-century. His breakout came in 2004 with the release of his album “Kamikaze.” The disc’s lead single, “Slow Jamz,” was a collaboration with Kanye West and Jamie Foxx that hit the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 and was the first #1 for all three artists. Twista followed “Slow Jamz” up with his second Top 10 hit, “Overnight Celebrity,” which earned him a Grammy nomination for Best Solo Rap Performance. Fellow Chicagoans Do or Die are also longtime veterans of that city’s hip hop landscape. Their first mainstream success came in 1996, when their debut single “Po Pimp” reached #22 on the Billboard Hot 100 while topping the publication’s Rap chart. Ticket Prices: $29.00-$69.00* Get tickets at the Five Flags Center Box Office (and avoid ticket fees) from 10 AM-5PM, M-Fr.

The Mavericks
May 22 @ 8 PM
Mississippi Moon Bar, Diamond Jo Casino
Rescheduled from July 17, 2020. The Mavericks – masters of country-Latin rock’n’roll, born in the rich cultural mix of Miami then tempered in Nashville’s country hothouse – rode high in the country and rock charts of the 1990s with culture-crossing hits like “What A Crying Shame” and “All You Ever Do Is Bring Me Down.” Then, they conquered Europe with the titanic feel-good party classic “Dance The Night Away,” a 400,000-seller in the UK. Yet nothing lasts forever, and in 2004 The Mavericks went on hiatus while frontman, Raul Malo, explored new musical avenues.
But since a reunion in 2012, the band has re-established itself as one of the most exciting and joyfully entertaining acts on the touring and festival circuit across the planet. It’s a reputation based on their irrepressible mix of country, Tex-Mex, rockabilly, and Latino sounds plus, a riotously entertaining, world-renowned live show.
The Mavericks are true American originals, heirs to the great song-writing traditions of Cuba and Miami, and of Nashville, San Antonio, and Memphis. Now, on their 30th anniversary as a band, they’re back to remind the world why they’re so good.
