    Jimmy, hang in there and get well. I’m working on a new verse for Margaritaville for you; I need to fire up the blender to get it done, so look for it about Saturday night/ Sunday morning! Been a fan since 76, so hang in there! Fins up!!

    Hey Jimmy, glad to hear you are on the mend – devastated you aren’t coming to NZ. We were in the States 4 years ago but didn’t get to see you so were thrilled you were coming down under to NZ. Take care and we’ll reserve our seats for next time!

    Jimmy,

    So glad you are OK. Too bad about Auckland, but that’s the brakes(no pun intneded)!
    The world would be a dismal place without the Poet from Paradise. See you at the
    Jazz Fest, if I can get close enough to the stage.

    Margaritas Kiwi Parrotheads flocked at 5 Oclock Somewhere at the Tiki Bar for Boat Drinks. What an awesome sight Fellow Parrotheads ruffled feathers together preparing for flight to Margaritaville. We sang we danced we flapped up and down. We were truly in the ‘Zone’ when our Head Parrot took a leap! These Kiwi Parrotheads couldn’t fly to catch him as he fell from the sky. We stood motionless on our perches. This Parrot was hurt! and the flock stood its ground we were not going to leave.. The Medicine Man who was sitting near by jumped over to where James B did lie. He’s broken his Parrot Head and his wings gently torn so he’ll quielty mend in his nest until morn. So Come Back, back to New Zealand, you know you won’t make the same Mistakea. Get well soon Jimmy and let the Par tay begin again.

    Margaritas Kiwi Parrotheads want to thank you Jimmy and the Coral Reefer Band for the best Part ay that we have ever been to. Our very first Flocking Concert! How damn good was it! We left our perch and flew down near the stage to be closer to the Feeding Frenzy! Flashing Margarita glass in wing and yes could these Parrotheads sing! We were heading for flight to where the Volcano Blows (Yes I put up my wing when Jimmy asked who would go, got tickets also to NZ) but we’ve put it on hold until we are told when this Parrothead will sing in a land that is Cold. We embrace you Jimmy with welcoming arms Aotearoa you’ll visit with your Musical Charm! Cheers another Margarita for me.! Hell they don’t make enough!

  • kathy Kauai

    Hey! Jimmy! I’m not connected to the outside music world! I live on Kauai, ever hear of it? Yeh I heard you were here after Iniki my friend. Didin’t hear about your unfortunat news, hope you are healing well. Did you know that Kauai is the Healing Island? Come on over. When your are well, please come giveus some live lovely music?? I have seen you many times in San Diego from 82 to 94, and I must say that gig at the Sports Arena was most surprising, indoors and all.
    I have NO experience in putting on a show, but I am a mighty fine cook/caterer and would love to serve you and your crew a great meal if you came on island. WE miss you!! I haven’t seen you in years since I moved to this wonderfu island that I call Mayberry, coming from So CA. I don’t miss those boys from North County, do you? I don’t know how many made it to the year 2000. Most of my amigos from those days have gone to the Pearly Gates. or somewhere…
    Please respond, Mr. Buffett, I was practically weaned on you ooh TMI?

    Glad to see all that was needed were bandages. Sorry for the people that could not have the concert they expected. We just love going to Massachusetts to see our Jimmy B. Went to restaurant in Myrtle Beach just to be in the zone of JB.

    So pleased you are okay. it was a horrible thing to happen . I saw you on Monday night at the Opera house with my husband and son and daughter . We flew up from Tasmania to see the concert . I was an exchange student in california in 1978 and my friends took me to the Mountain Air concert that year… I have been enjoying your music ever since then and was thrilled when you were playing in Sydney. Please take care and come back. Jo Cook Tasmania
