Due to a bottleneck at security lines getting into Saturday night’s concert at KeyBank Pavilion in Pittsburgh, many fans were very late getting into the Jimmy Buffett show. Live Nation will be offering refunds in the form of “concert cash”:

Fans who did not pass through the gates of the Buggettstown venue by 8:25 p.m. will receive “concert cash” equal to the value of their Ticketmaster tickets, according to a statement Tuesday from Live Nation, the concert promoter handling shows at KeyBank Pavilion.

The statement did not say how fans will be notified of their refund. Live Nation has encouraged fans to reach out to Ticketmaster Fan Support at 1-800-653-8000 in the past.

Long lines stretched from the venue’s gates as the show started Saturday evening. Many fans reported waiting outside for hours and not getting inside until the show was nearly over.

Buffett’s fans, known as Parrot Heads, have demanded refunds. The concert cash can be used for other shows at KeyBank Pavilion or at any other Live Nation venue in the country. Ticket prices ranged from $50 for a lawn seat to $150 for reserved seating.

Live Nation has been absolutely silent on what caused the long lines outside the venue or what the company is doing to ensure it does not happen again. The company issued an apology Sunday and pledged to work hard to prevet it from happening again.

Buffett Caddies at Women’s Open Practice Round

Jimmy Buffett was at the Women’s US Open practice round on Monday where he caddied for his niece.

The 71-year-old musician was on hand Monday for a U.S. Senior Women’s Open practice round and appeared to actually serve as a caddie for competitor Patricia Ehrhart.

It’s convenient for Buffett, as the tournament is being contested at Chicago Golf Club (from July 12-15) and he’ll be performing at Wrigley Field on Friday (with a Tuesday gig in Cincinnati in between).

But there’s more than just the matter of convenience: Ehrhart is Buffett’s niece.

Jimmy Buffett performed Wednesday night on PBS’ “A Capitol Fourth” program from Washington, DC. The cast of ‘Escape to Margaritaville’ performed a medley of songs from the musical with Jimmy joining them at the end to perform “Margaritaville.” He later joined the Beach Boys for a couple of songs.

As if The Beach Boys performing at this year’s A Capitol Fourth on PBS wasn’t enough of a treat itself, the band decided to collaborate with special guests Jimmy Buffett and John Stamos for a medley of hits last night (July 4).

The stars had clear chemistry on stage together, not missing a beat. The former Full House star rocked out on a red, white, and blue electric guitar, while Buffett looked relaxed as ever while strumming an acoustic guitar on the last two tracks.

The full broadcast is available to watch below:

Jimmy introduces the cast of ‘Escape to Margaritaville’ to sing a medley of songs – 13:15
Jimmy sings “Margaritaville” – 18:10
Jimmy joins the Beach Boys – 1:07:00
