Summer’s Last Blast
August 20 and 21 @ 6 PM–Midnight
Dubuque County Fairgrounds Beer Garden (14569 Old Hwy Rd)
Summer’s Last Blast returns for its landmark 21st season with another two-day free concert series, this time on Thursday, Aug. 21 and Friday, Aug. 22 at the Dubuque County Fairgrounds Beer Garden.

Still in safe-rocking mode, the outdoor event is designed to let you get your face rocked off while also covering it up and spacing out in the big open area that is allowed by the fairgrounds beer stand. So you can be as close to your friends as you like and as far from others as you like at the same time.

The long-running Dubuque festival features two big nights of great live music once again. It all kicks off on Thursday Aug. 20 at 6 p.m. as local rockers Full Boar open the show. This supergroup, made up a guys who were in all the biggest rock bands in Dubuque, keep the tradition alive with a set of modern hard-rock hits. Think less AC/DC and more Volbeat. They are followed by Not Quite Brothers, a five piece band out of Cedar Falls, IA that is getting well-known real fast! And then the massively popular Spazmatics make their first visit to Dubuque in waaaayyy too long with their amazing set of ‘80s-based pop-synth favorites, while dressed-up as a bunch of super dorks, and bringing a thousand percent energy to their show. They are always a ton of fun!

Friday night rocks a little harder. Tanner Lee and the Black Bums, led by local rising star Tanner Scheckel, will give you a fun warm-up with laid back beach-style tunes before local favorites Menace take the stage with a set of hard rocking hair metal favorites. That Buck Mess can sing like a mother! Get there early and enjoy that performance before the headliners, Electric Shock, take the stage. Electric Shock are an AC/DC trickier act that has developed one hell of a following in Dubuque and across the Midwest. If you love AC/DC, prepare to be dipped in magic waters, my friend.

And when it gets dark on Friday night, Verlo Mattress sponsors a fireworks show, much like they did during Kickoff to Summer. When the big Dubuque fireworks show was postponed, many people enjoyed coming out to the fairgrounds and watching that free fireworks show at dusk. They can even do so from the safe socially-distanced spot being their car if they like. And now that the postponed fireworks have been completely cancelled, Summer’s Last Blast organizers wanted to fill in the missing opportunity again. Thanks to Rod and the great crew at Verlo Mattress, you have a second chance to come out to the fairgrounds and take in a fun fireworks show. And hey, stay for some rock and roll while you’re at it.

Naturally, the cold Budweiser and non-alcoholic beverages will be flowing, and great food will be available as well. This is an all ages show, and best of all, admission is totally free. You only pay if you want a drink or a bit to eat. How great is that? Check out all the sponsors in the ad on this page so you know who to thank for making that possible. 

A portion of the proceeds support great local charitable causes. And with almost no opportunities to get out to a festival this year, maybe this is your last chance to do so before the cold sets in. Join the fun and distance yourself as you like, wear a mask by all means, and come remember what it’s like to have a good time again.

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.
Ticket Prices: $23.00-$33.00*
Get tickets at the Five Flags Center Box Office (and avoid ticket fees) from 10 AM-5PM, M-Fr. (563)-589-4258 or online at FiveFlagsCenter.com or Ticetmaster.com.

Murder Mystery Dinner: COOTIES
September 20 @ 5 PM

While we’ve always known the Brew Ha Ha Players are a little off-kilter (or is that off-KILLter?), this time around, there’s no question, as their latest murderous romp mirrors current circumstances in a way that’s not only hilarious but dead on. Epi-Con, the ultimate annual convention for epidemics, is a fan favorite for people excited for a sneak peek at the latest and greatest deadly diseases. Epi-Con is also home for those who might benefit financially or professionally from a world-wide pandemic. But, did researchers go too far with their creation of this year’s Virus of the Year? One thing’s for sure, no one is going anywhere after the keynote speaker is suddenly killed, and it’s up to you, the audience, to help solve what or who truly is the killer.

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.

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.
Ticket Prices: $37.50-$57.50*

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*
VIP “Lost in Love Experience:” $179.00*

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.

In 2013, after releasing two hit EPs that yielded three #1 singles, Morgan was named New Oz Artist of the Year at the CMC Music Awards followed by four more trophies over the next two years, including back-to-back Male Oz Artist of the Year awards. In 2015 Evans was awarded the prestigious CMA Global Artist Award. The award recognizes outstanding achievement by an international country star in furthering the popularity of country music in their home country. 301 Bell St. 563-690-4758. moonbarrocks.com.

Tape Face
March 27, 8 PM
Mississippi Moon Bar, Diamond Jo Casino
Rescheduled from September 26, 2020. Mime with noise, stand-up with no talking, drama with no acting. Viral sensation Tape Face has to be seen to be believed.
Tape Face, real name Sam Wills of New Zealand, gained national attention during his run in 2016 on America’s Got Talent as a season 11 finalist and again in 2019 on America’s Got Talent: The Champions. He has headlined two limited engagements at Bugsy’s Cabaret at Flamingo Las Vegas in 2017 and now a multi-year residency at Harrah’s Las Vegas. He uses no dialogue in his performance, stretching black electrical tape across his mouth. His show is a series of comedy bits and sleight-of-hand magic acts, often with audience members pulled to the stage and, has been a top draw on his world and U.S. tours.
This truly is comedy made for everyone, guests must be prepared to get involved and become heroes on stage, as they step inside a comedy world unlike any other. Visually stunning, heart-stopping, and hilarious, you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and when it’s all over you’ll be completely speechless. Just like Tape Face.

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.
