Buffett Performs in Brisbane, Announces Spring Return to Australia

Jimmy Buffett and Mac McAnally played an intimate show in Brisbane last night, marking the first of two shows in Australia.

Buffett announced during the show that he’ll be back with his full band in March – April.

The Courier Mail has a review of the show:

AFTER an absence of close to quarter of a century, American songwriter Jimmy Buffett finally made it back on to a Brisbane stage last night.

Crawled on, actually, getting the first of many laughs about his near-death experience falling from a stage in Sydney last year.

But the 65-year-old is in fine shape all that sea air does him no harm and even better spirits, taking this 1000-strong audience on two-hour ride of songs and jokes that goes down as easily as the subject of his most famous song. In fact, Margaritaville now sports a new verse about that experience.

This intimate outdoors gig under balmy Brisbane skies sold out in minutes, and while many of his Australian fans have travelled around the world to see him play, there’s no doubt that his absence from this part of the world heightened the sense of occasion for his brightly-attired fans.

Buffett To Return to Australia in 2013

posted August 30th, 2012 at 4:11 pm

In an interview with an Australian news outlet, it’s revealed that Jimmy Buffett is planning a larger tour for Australia in 2013:

Buffett is returning to play in Australia for the first time since the accident next month for intimate, acoustic shows in Melbourne and Brisbane, ahead of a bigger tour next year.

Presumably Buffett would also play in New Zealand, where in 2011 he had to cancel a show there after falling off the stage.

In the interview, Buffett talks a little about the fall. Read it here.

Dates Confirmed for Buffett’s Return to Australia

After confirming that Jimmy Buffett would be back in Australia in September, we now have confirmation on the dates and venues:

In December of 2010, the one and only Jimmy Buffett announced he would be returning to Australia for the first time in decades for two very special summer shows at the Sydney Opera House in January of 2011. The demand was high and Australian Parrotheads from coast to coast called for more; so much more in fact that an unscheduled additional show at the Hordern Pavilion was locked in. Spreading the beach party a little further this time, Chugg Entertainment are thrilled to confirm that Buffett will be returning to Australia for two very special solo-acoustic shows with Mac McAnally next month in Brisbane and Melbourne.

Returning to Brisbane and Melbourne for the first time in more than 20 years, Buffett will play a special outdoor show in Brisbane’s Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens (a venue-first) on Friday 21 September, before taking the party to theiconic Palais Theatre in Melbourne on Sunday 23 September.

Tickets for both shows go on sale Wednesday at 9 am. An exclusive presale is available to Chugg Entertainment members.

Buffett May Head to Australia Next Month

Could Jimmy Buffett be returning to Australia in September?

A couple weeks ago the Margarillas tweeted that they’d be heading overseas next month:

Word has it from #Margaritaville headquarters that we may need our passports in September. Stay tuned!

Our discussion board member Garrett (parrothead mania) picked up on a possible hint during Buffett’s recent show in Atlantic City. During the song “Southern Cross,” Buffett said “next month” after the line “when you see the Southern Cross for the first time.”

It’s possible that Buffett may be referring to a personal trip somewhere below the equator, but paired with the Margarillas’ tweet it seems like a good guess that he’ll be back Down Under in September.

You can listen to the song yourself here (relevant part begins at 2:10)
