Bon Jovi & Brad Paisley Concert Shuttles in Gulf Shores
Don't drive! My best advice for your best experience at the Bon Jovi (Oct. 15) and Brad Paisley (Oct. 17) concerts in Gulf Shores this weekend is to utilize the FREE Shuttles from various island locations. I'm not certain how often the shuttle runs but they start at 12:30 p.m. the day of the show and end at 12 a.m. The yellow line shuttles from Brunos and Winn Dixie in Gulf Shores can accommodate handicapped passengers. The streets near the venue will be closed beginning today and reopened on Tuesday.
Here's the schedule for both events:
Friday – 10/15
10 a.m. – Hangout opens
1 p.m. – Plaza opens
4:00 p.m. – Doors open
6:30 p.m. – Green River Ordinance
7:45 p.m. – Bon Jovi
Sunday – 10/17
10:00 a.m. – Hangout opens
1:00 p.m. – Plaza Opens
4:00 p.m. – Doors Open
6:30 p.m. – Little Big Town
8:00 p.m. – Brad Paisley
The Jimmy Buffett concert on the beach in July was a huge success with little traffic congestion, even though the crowds exceeded 45,000, because the shuttle system worked so well. So if your accommodations are in an outlying area simply drive to one of the shuttle locations or walk to a shuttle stop if one is nearby but do not even attempt to drive to the concert itself. Take it from a local the shuttles are the way to roll.
Enjoy - I'll see you at the concerts on the beach at The Hangout in Gulf Shores.
