Buffett Interviewed Ahead of Australia Tour Stop

Jimmy Buffett has been making his way southwest through the Pacific Islands, making stops in Hawaii, Fiji, and Norfolk Island (see pics on his Instagram feed) enroute to Australia where he’ll perform at the Byron Bay Bluesfest on Friday.

News Corp Australia Network interviewed Buffett: “Jimmy Buffett hopes to not fall off stage and stay away from sharks on his return gig to Australia”

FAMED American singer Jimmy Buffett hopes to share a margarita with the Sydney trauma doctor who “probably saved my life” when he returns to Australia to perform at Bluesfest.

The Margaritaville star walked off the stage towards the end of his Hordern Pavilion concert on Australia Day in 2011 — at the tailend of his first Australian tour in more than two decades — and sustained a head injury.

St Vincent’s Hospital head of emergency Professor Gordian Fulde was enjoying the concert from the front row and leapt over the barricades to treat the performer.

Buffett hopes the doctor will join the rest of his legion of Parrothead fans at his one-off concert at the Byron Bay festival on Friday.

“Hopefully I am going to get him up to Byron. That fall off the stage is a memory burned into whatever part of my brain I fell on,” Buffett said ahead of his Australian visit.

“I remember coming to with Gordian over me and telling me I had fallen but to stay with him and keep looking him in the eye.

“He was in the front row … who else gets the head of trauma surgery on Australia Day sitting in their front row?
“I am sure they probably saved my life.”

Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band will head to Australia on April 14th to perform at the Byron Bay Bluesfest.

Bluesfest is thrilled to be starting the New Year on a high by announcing the King of Margaritaville himself, Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefers will be performing exclusively in Australia at Bluesfest in 2017. Could there be a location more perfect for an artist famous for hits such as ‘Cheeseburger in Paradise’, ‘Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes’ and of course the classic Margaritaville. Bluesfest can’t wait for his fans to enjoy these hits plus many more just outside of idyllic Byron Bay.

Other acts slated to play Bluesfest include Santana, Patti Smith, the Doobie Brothers, The Lumineers, St Paul & the Broken Bones, and Mary J. Blige.

Insightful ‘Stars and Stripes’ Interview with Buffett

Stars and Stripes has a great interview with Jimmy Buffett that they conducted backstage at Yokosuka Naval Base in Japan.

On why he came to play the free shows:

We’ve been doing shows around the world for quite a while and it was kind of a unique situation. My friend Caroline Kennedy, when she became [United States ambassador to Japan], she’s kind of a force of nature, so she got out here and she said, “You need to come while I’m here and do this.” And I’d never been to Japan.

Also, I have a lot of great friends in the Navy. You join the Navy and see the world, you can join this band and see the world — and it’s a great thrill to let people see a show that normally wouldn’t be able to get to one.

We have a lot of fans here, and I didn’t realize that. I thought when we came to Okinawa there’d be a couple hundred people. We had 11,000 people. We opened it up not just to the Navy, we opened it up to the town, too. I think everybody’s appreciative of that.

On his military connections:

I come from a family of sailors. My dad was a flyer in WWII. The rest of them, my grandfather and all my uncles, were in the Navy. At one point I came close to becoming a naval aviator, but then the guitar came along. So I think I kind of maneuvered it with friends that I had, and I was lucky enough to meet some very cool people. In the ‘80s I wound up trading shows for [catapult] shots basically. So I’ve been off the boat in a [F-14 Tomcat] and in an A-4 [Skyhawk].

Two of my best friends and roommates in college were naval aviators. I always stay in touch with them; they live in San Diego now. I’m still a pilot. I fly a Falcon 900LX and a [Cessna] Caravan seaplane. Landing in the East River [New York] is really fun.

On seeing Japan:

This sparked my interest to come back. I have a little place in Hawaii, and I’ll be in Australia in March. I’d like to come snowboarding [in Japan] and I’d like to see the countryside. There were nice waves in Okinawa … I might go back there. It would be certainly worth coming back.

In the works:

I have a travel book — it started about two to three years ago when I went to China. I’m working on that, and hopefully I’ll try to finish that up this year. And then we have the play, the “Margaritaville” musical, which has been an ongoing thing we’ve been working on for six years. It’s actually opening in La Jolla [Calif.] in April. We’ll do it there and then take it on the road, and in about a year we’ll go to Broadway with it. But it’s fun because it’s little more diverse. I should go back and do an album soon — when it comes to me I’ll go. It’s been fun for me to do some other things.

The Tampa Bay Rays played the Cuban national baseball team in Havana on Tuesday and Jimmy Buffett was in attendance.

Singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett, who performed at MLB’s reception on Monday night, also took in the sights from the field.

“This is history and it’s important,” said Buffett, who attended the game between the Orioles and Cuba in Havana in 1999. “This is a cultural shift more than anything. It could not come at a better time. This is all happening right now, and the only thing that was planned was the baseball game.”

Jimmy also appeared on Sportscenter:
