Frisco, TX Show Announced

February 27th, 2014

Many of you have been eagerly awaiting a date for the Dallas area, and you’ll be happy to hear Jimmy Buffett is returning to Toyota Stadium (formerly FC Dallas Stadium and Pizza Hut Park) this June. Buffettt will have an open act this year: John Fogerty.

Frisco, TX
Saturday, June 21st
Toyota Stadium

Tickets on sale March 7th via TicketMaster | TicketNetwork.

from The Dallas Morning News:

First Jimmy Buffett announced a concert in Austin. Houston next. Then no more Texas show announcements for about three weeks. I thought the Parrotheads in North Texas might pack up and move to Finland.

But no, the surfer-singer is officially headed to Frisco again this year, home of what’s considered one of the best tailgates each year on the Jimmy Buffett tour. The show is June 21 at Toyota Stadium (formerly FC Dallas Stadium, formerly Pizza Hut Park.)

John Fogerty is the opening act.

This year marks the second in a row for a Frisco-based concert, as the Coral Reefer Band took a detour to Dallas in 2012. That didn’t work out so well, according to most Parrotheads we interviewed, and by 2013 the show had returned to Frisco.

If the 2014 concert in Frisco mirrors past events, expect a weekend-long RV parking lot party, where concertgoers in board shorts and grass skirts flip and flop in land-locked Frisco. There’ll be margaritas, flying Jell-O shots and searches for that lost shaker of salt.

Buffett Talks Technology on Tekzilla Bites

February 25th, 2014

If you’ve been following Jimmy Buffett for a while, you know that he’s into all the latest technology. On a recent swing through San Francisco, Jimmy stopped by Tekzilla to talk tech.

Jimmy described how they are beginning to use small drones (his favorite new technology) at shows to record the crowd as well as the tailgating beforehand.

Buffett also opened up his bag to show what he carries around: an Android phone, iPad mini, and some SpaceX swag that he received on a tour of the private space company.

Watch below:
