Buffett Working On Television Show

December 14th, 2008

According to the Inside Track on the Boston Herald, Jimmy Buffett is working on a television show. The article interviews Mike O’Malley (pictured right in “My Own Worst Enemy), former star of the sitcom “Yes, Dear” and current star of the short-lived NBC series “My Own Worst Enemy.”

Now that he has some time on his hands, O’Malley said he’s hoping to get back to New England and catch a Patriots [team stats] game and is once again scheduled to emcee Theo Epstein’s “Hot Stove, Cool Music” show at The Paradise on Jan. 10.

O’Malley’s also working with Jimmy Buffett on a TV show based on the characters the “Margaritaville” main man sings about.

“We’ve been out to a few networks and hope to have a commitment by Christmas,” he said.

Buffett Makes Stubhub’s Annual Ticket Report

December 12th, 2008

Stubhub has released its annual concert ticket report and Jimmy Buffett’s 2008 Year Of Still Here Tour made a couple of their lists.

Buffet comes in at number 9 on the list of the Top 10 Highest Grossing Tours. Here’s the full list:

  1. Madonna
  2. Jonas Brothers
  3. Bruce Springsteen
  4. Bon Jovi
  5. Coldplay
  6. Kenny Chesney
  7. AC/DC
  8. Hannah Montana
  9. Jimmy Buffett
  10. Billy Joel

Buffett was at number 7 last year, and at number 5 in 2006.

What might come as a surprise to some parrotheads, Jimmy does not make the top 10 list for highest ticket prices. The highest average ticket price on Stubhub for 2008 was Madonna at $306. In the number 10 spot was Michael Buble at $189. Jimmy Buffett’s average price was $121 (last year the average Stubhub price was $136 for Buffett).

An interesting note that Stubhub mentions:

For the third consecutive year, six of StubHub’s Top 10 Selling Tours of 2008 also toured 20 years ago or more (Madonna, Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi, AC/DC, Jimmy Buffett, Billy Joel)
