Jimmy Buffett Concert Schedule Jimmy Buffett is the tropical musician, songwriter and author known for "Margaritaville." Core groups of devoted fans known as Parrotheads follow him religiously. Jimmy's tour dates include a New Year's Eve 2018 show in Nashville. Jimmy then partners with The Eagles on several shows across the country. Jimmy's live concerts are soul-satisfying events, with many performed for charity. Most recently Jimmy, along with Toby Keith and Kenny Chesney, played a benefit concert for hurricane victims in Florida on November 19, 2017. Jimmy Buffett's biggest hits are "Margaritaville," "Changes in Latitude" and "Come Monday." Aside from his music, he is the author of three New York Times bestselling novels and a serial businessman with a large chain of restaurants, as well as minor league baseball teams, hotels and casinos, and officially licensed products of many types. In 2003, he won an award from the Academy of Country Music for his duet with Alan Jackson on "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere." Of his more than 30 albums released, eight are Gold and nine are Platinum or Multi-Platinum albums. Jimmy Buffett Background Jimmy Buffett was born on Christmas Day, 1946 in Pascagoula, Mississippi and raised in Mobile, Alabama, getting involved in the band at a young age and picking up the guitar during college. Influenced by his grandfather, who was a sailor, and by country music while working for Billboard Magazine in Nashville, Jimmy tried to break into music in Nashville, but his sound did not mesh with the brand of country music popular in the 1970s. Jimmy then went to Key West and found his calling: good-time island music sometimes called "gulf and western." Jimmy honed his easygoing beach bum persona playing for drinks at the Chart Room Bar in Key West's Pier House Motel. When Jim Croce died unexpectedly in 1973, ABC/Dunhill Records called Jimmy to fill the void. He released albums regularly: 1973's A White Sport Coat and a Pink Crustacean; two in 1974, Living & Dying in 3/4 Time and A1A; followed by Havana Daydreamin' in 1976. His breakout album was 1977's Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes, which included the hit song "Margaritaville." Today, Jimmy is a major influence in both music and philanthropy. He often performs high-value benefit concerts for victims of natural disasters.

Bringing in the new year parrothead stype

This was the biggest and most memorable thing I've ever done on NYE. Buffett and Lewis put on an excellent show. It started around 8 and didn't end until 12:30am the next year. Jimmy came out to introduce Huey Lewis, what a class act. How many other headliners do you know that do that? Huey Lewis and the News still got it. The horn section, Huey on the harp, still rockin it. I have to say of my 15 or so Buffett concerts, this is the first one I've seen Jimmy not in a swimsuit. He actually owns long pants. To be fair, it was 5 degrees in Nashville that night. He even commented how nice it was to be warm and inside vs. outside. He asked the crowd how we thought Keith Urban's fingers were feeling playing an outdoor concert in town the same night. Burrr. Buffett and the CRB did not disappoint the packed house. He played most of the favorites and a couple 'lost' oldies I've never heard before. He skipped my favorite tonight "One Particular Harbor" but filled in with plenty other favorites. This in one of the few indoor venues where Buffett fits, Bridgstone Arena. Jimmy showcased a local female performer. She joined him on one of his songs and had the CRB play during one of her originals. Sorry, can't remember her name for some reason. Too much parrot juice maybe.

NYE Jimmy Buffett and the Corral Reffer Band was awsome. They improve with age and seem to enjoy the crowd almost as much as the crowd enjoys them. The play list was great. the hand off to Mac and featured guests was seemless. Huey Lewis came back and played with JB and the band. The party went well past midnight and everyone left wanting more. We would have probably have stayed till dawn if possible. Many old favorites were played and some unexpected surprises, as well. Deff got our moneys worth. Only downside was the venue and lack of transpertation/communication.

What a fabulous way to ring in 2018!

I have always been a die-hard parrothead, but this Buffett concert was perhaps the best I have been to. The music with the visual along with his typical Buffet laid blackness made a quintessential way to ring in 2018. We Margaritavillef into the new year.
