March 31st, 2008

As we reported two weeks ago, Jimmy Buffett will play a free show at his new Margaritaville Cafe in Glendale, Arizona. The date is now set: Wednesday, April 9th, according to AZCentral.com.

Although the private concert is free, tickets are required for entry. Fans can win pairs of tickets through various Valley media outlets or by visiting Margaritaville, in Westgate City Center. Winners of tickets will be chosen nightly at the restaurant.

The Glendale Margaritaville opened in November. Just last month, Buffett opened another Margaritaville in Panama City, Florida.
