Australian fans have been waiting for over 20 years, but the wait will soon be over. Jimmy Buffett appeared on the Australian Today Show today and announced that he’ll perform at the Sydney Opera House on January 23rd and 24th.

At the end of the recorded message, Jimmy strummed a few lines of Men at Work’s “Land Down Under.”

Tickets go on sale Friday, December 17th at 9 am local. Prices are $169.00 and $119.00. Find out how to gain access to presale tickets here.

Richard Wilkins, entertainment editor for the Today Show, said Jimmy will also play a show in New Zealand while down under.

    Please come down to Hobart – saw you in Brisbane with Rita Coolidge years ago when I first met my husband who is a huge fan. We have an 8 month Hungarian Viszla named Jimmy Buffett (that should make you WANT to come to Hobart!) :)

      How and where did you get tickets? We have rang Opera House and were told to be online or on the phone at 9am tomorrow morning. We were also told that there may not be many left as they have been pre selling them. We will be very disappointed to miss out especially since we are coming from Tassie

    Went to Vegas earlier this year to see him – then concert re scheduled for later dates…. finally got thru to the site this morning for the opera house tickets & have missed out again. This sucks. JB you need to treat your loyal fans better.

    why does the opera house booking office discriminate against non -sydney residence, by pre-selling to the “in club” ? very disappointing.

    Really is anyone surprised his only 2 shows have sold out so quickly – The opera house is a terrible place for his concerts. 2 nights for a max of 6000 fans Blah!!!!!!!
    It should have been held on the steps of the opera house – same as the Aria’s or even Ophra and the harbour would have turned it on for sure. And not to mention ALL our lovely beaches – Correct!!!!!!!
    I also missed out on tickets. Jimmy how about 2 shows in each state, that might help your Parrotheads get to see you. – I’m so dissappointed

    Just letting Jimmy Buffett fans know that an Australian website Ticket Finders are selling $750 for the Sydney concert. THIS IS A SCAM The Opera House advisesd me they did not allocate them any tickets. Check scam sites for confirmation.
