Pittsburgh Concertgoers to Receive Refund, Sort of

July 10th, 2018


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.

Wanna Go To The Keys?!

February 16th, 2018


Are you still shivering, pushing the thermostat higher to ward off the bone-chilling cold and keep your pipes from freezing? Are you wondering how to escape the bitter arctic weather that has paralyzed much of the country so far this winter?

A change of latitude could change your attitude! Our signature Lost Shaker of Salt Adventure is a weeklong excursion of discovery through the tropical paradise of the Florida Keys – 8 days and 7 nights of warm tropical breezes surrounded by nothing but turquoise water quietly lapping at your toes as you sip on a salty-rimmed margarita; a whole week without a care in the world, wondering if the water is gonna reach your chair.

From South Beach to Key West, our journey follows in Jimmy Buffett’s flip flops, recalling the trip that led him to the original Margaritaville. Along the way we’ll encounter some of his favorite haunts, like Alabama Jacks, visit islands that played a large part in Florida history and explore a now deserted island that was once the site of a brutal pre-dawn Indian massacre.

Our island-hopping also takes us to Pigeon Key, which was at one time the workers’camp for Henry Flagler’s railroad to Key West. We’ll learn of the great Spanish treasure fleets that sunk off the coast and see the culmination of one man’s search for some of that lost bounty.

But wait, there’s more! Swimming, snorkeling, diving, fishing, kayaking, sun-bathing, hiking, paddle-boarding…whatever your heart desires awaits you on this tropical paradise getaway.

Simply answer the call of the coral islands as they beckon you to this relaxation–inducing, island-hopping, treasure-hunting escapade. And the best part? You can reserve your spot on the April 2018 Lost Shaker of Salt Adventure™ now for just $50 per person!

This pre-registration period is open until March 1st 2018 and is non-refundable unless the trip is postponed. Full payment is due on March 8th, 2018 and is non-cancellable. However, your spot is transferable should your plans change at the last minute. So tell your friends, tell your family and join us for a week-long romp though this unique tropical paradise that will leave you wanting to keep your toes in the sand.

For more information or to book your spot, call 1-800-598-9853 or visit us at www.margaritavilleadventures.com!
