When Jimmy Buffett announced on the Australian Today Show that he’s coming to Sydney, Australia in January, entertainment editor Richard Wilkins said that a concert was also rumored for New Zealand.

In an interview with Michael Chugg of Chugg Entertainment, he reveals a little more info about this show:

“We’ve got a good year ahead,” Chugg enthuses. “We’ve already announced The Doobie Brothers and Santana and we’ve got more to come. We’re always working on things. We’re going to do Jimmy Buffett – but I haven’t got a venue organised for Auckland yet. But you can tell people he’s coming. We’ll have him here in January. Get a bit of hype going for that if you like…”

Buffett World received many e-mails from folks that got shut out trying to buy tickets for the Sydney shows. Hopefully some of you can make the trek across the Tasman Sea to Auckland for this show.
