Jimmy Buffett has added another show in the Boston area in August:
Thursday, August 11th 2016
House of Blues Boston
“Jimmy Buffett’s deep ties to Boston are unmistakable: from countless sold out concerts to helping make Boston Strong: An Evening of Support and Celebration an extraordinary success,” said Live Nation’s John Innamorato. “We are humbled, honored and above all excited to welcome Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band back to Lansdowne Street!”
With the capacity of the House of Blues hovering around 2,200, this tour stop will be among the most intimate on Buffett’s tour, compared to the nearly 20,000 seat capacity of the Xfinity Center in Mansfield.
Tickets go on sale Thursday, July 28th at 10:00am through Ticketmaster.
Jimmy Buffett was in Las Vegas on Monday for the US premiere of the new “Jason Bourne” film. Buffett’s good friend Frank Marshall is a producer on the latest installment of the Bourne series starring Matt Damon, which opens July 29th.
Jimmy Buffett’s latest Margaritaville restaurant will open in San Antonio on Tuesday, July 19th at 10am.
Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville has finally released a date for the opening of its San Antonio location inside Rivercenter Mall (849 E. Commerce St.). Yes, we have plenty of margs in SA already, but the first Margaritaville in Texas will offer a family-friendly restaurant with seating for 315 souls.
Per today’s press release announcement via the International Meal Company, which owns the restaurant, the space will feature “island-inspired flavors, live entertainment and a patio overlooking the river” all inside a 10,000 square-foot venue. Menu items sound as goofy as you’d imagine: Cheeseburger in Paradise, Volcano Nachos, Drunken Shrimp Skillets.
A grand opening and BONUS MARGARITA TOAST! will take place Tuesday , July 19 from 10 to 10:30 a.m. The restaurant will open 11 a.m. daily.

Jimmy Buffett is seemingly expanding his business empire in all directions, and a new focus will be on the digital side as Margaritaville Enterprises has hired a few key people in recent months:
The digital media group of Margaritaville Enterprises, the hospitality, merchandise and media firm based on the carefree lifestyle invoked by Jimmy Buffett’s music, has made three key hires including Sarah Ramey, formerly in charge of video production and development for Gawker, as head of content.
Margaritaville Media, led by former YouTube exec Laura Lee, also has tapped Sam Keene, who previously worked at NASCAR and Red Bull, as head of digital marketing and platforms; and Talar Sarkissian, formerly with mobile-video app startup SpeakUp, as head of business development and operations. All three report to Lee, president of Margaritaville Media and chief digital officer.
Under the direction of Lee, Margaritaville Media is attempting to expand the reach of the Buffett-inspired brand to younger demographics with video series, editorial and branded content, as well as immersive digital experiences.
“With Sarah’s deep content capabilities across digital, TV and film, Sam’s proven leadership in building digital audiences for lifestyle brands and Talar’s strong operational experience, we are perfectly positioned to take Margaritaville Media to the next level and grow our company’s social presence,” Lee said in announcing the hires. “We look forward to creating fun and escapist content that continues to inspire our younger fans to embrace the Margaritaville lifestyle.”
