The Miami Dolphins hosted the Indianapolis Colts on Monday night for the home opener at Landshark Stadium. Before the game, Jimmy Buffett performed for a few thousands fans outside of the gates:

Jimmy Buffett did a pre-game music set outside the stadium that attracted the Estefans, Williams, rapper T-Pain and race car driver Helio Castroneves.

Buffett got the tailgaters in the mood with his concert on the promenade, fans coming right up to the stage to wave their aqua foam fins to the left and to the right.

“It’s almost game time. Let’s send ‘em in in the right mood,” he told a crowd of some 3,000 or more.

The Jaws theme started and then he broke into Fins, which he has remixed into a Dolphins theme song, this time slipping in, “We’re going to dine on horse meat tonight,” a warning to the Indianapolis Colts.

[Dolphins owner Stephen] Ross came on stage at the end of the concert and toasted the crowd – with a LandShark Lager.

Despite the good karma from the pregame Buffett concert, the Dolphins fell to the Colts by a score of 27-23.

    He went earlier than reported. My wife and I got to the stage at about 7:20 and stayed there until after 8:00 and he did not play in that time frame. Judging by the pictures, he was probably there in the 6:30 – 6:45 time frame. Oh well, I guess I’m just destined to not see him at all this year.

    Josh, any idea what the full set list was? I’m sure it wasn’t long.

    Unfortunately no, I don’t know what the set list was. Ya probably wasn’t long and probably was Margaritaville and Fins and maybe a couple others.
