After years of rumors, Jimmy Buffett will finally make it Down Under this winter… make that this summer… for a show in Australia.

The Today Show (Australian version) made the announcement this morning, reporting that it will be a “one off show at the Sydney Opera House in January“.

More details will be made available “come Monday.”

(Hat tip Warwick and Lionel for passing this along)

Update – Details have been released. See latest article from 12/2/10.

    Today entertainment editor Richard Wilkins, who broke the story last week that Jimmy is coming to Sydney, said today on the air that “he is coming, definitely, for one show in Sydney in January.” Sounded like he hopes to give more details in coming days.

    JB, well why did I think that it would be so easy to get tickets to any concert you bring to OZ! It was IMPOSSIBLE to get through via phone or online. Sold out in minutes! Unbelievable! Soooooooooooooooooooo disappointed. I figure we will have to fly to the States to even get close to a concert. And that’s not guaranteed either. Still upset at not getting some tickets. But we do have a Margaritaville Frozen Conconction Maker which is the only thing that keeps us ‘Hanging on’. So when it’s 5 oclock somewhere we will once again watch our much played JB Concert DVD’s sipping on Margarita’s till we get drunk and cry boo hoo! Love ya Jimmy from a couple of Kiwi Parrotheads just wastin away in Margaritaville!! Paul & Kairn Toulson, Gold Coast, OZ
