2016 Jimmy Buffett Tour Schedule
Taking the stage at Jazz Fest barefoot and in rare form, the Coral Reefer Band played one epic Jimmy Buffett tour date featuring hits like Let's Get Drunk and Screw, I Will Play for Gumbo and Cheeseburger in Paradise and covered Alan Jackson's It's Five O'Clock Somewhere. All the Parrotheads at the show roared approval at Jimmy's shenanigans while they tossed beachballs around and sang along.
About Jimmy Buffett
James William Buffett was born on December 25, 1946, in Pascagoula, Mississippi. He grew up on the Gulf Coast of Florida. Buffett began his musical career in Nashville,Tennessee during the late 1960s as a country artist, but switched to his "island escapism" persona after embarking on a busking expedition to Key West, and taking to the tropical culture readily- back then, people didn't have to scramble for tickets to a Jimmy Buffett concert tour.
This move combined country, folk and tropical-themed sounds at Jimmy Buffet concerts, and he's only gotten better with age. Jimmy Buffett concerts are legend among his loyal fans who'd rather hibernate through summer than miss the chance to pick up some Jimmy Buffett tickets. It is said that the scenes in the parking lots of the arenas are as good as the shows themselves- fans carrying tickets for Jimmy Buffett wear tropical attire and create their own little "beaches" by bringing along inflatable pools! It's an all out beach party and the only way to experience it is with tickets for Jimmy Buffett in concert!
Aside from collaborating with Alan Jackson in various musical projects, Buffett also owns two restaurants chains, Margaritaville, and Cheeseburger in Paradise, both named after two of his best-known songs. He has also written three number one best-selling fiction book and a number one best-selling non-fiction book. The time to appreciate the original rocker is now!
Fun Fact: Jimmy Buffett is the sixth author to have ever reached No. 1 on both the fiction and non- New York Times Bestseller lists, for his book A Pirate Looks at Fifty
