Jimmy Buffett is performing tonight at his new casino hotel in Bossier City, Louisiana to celebrate the opening of the $197 million project.
Paradise Theater doors open at 4pm CT and the show starts at 5pm CT. You can listen live on Radio Margaritaville.
The Margaritaville casino is all on one level, spread across 30,000 square feet, and features around 1,300 slot machines and 54 table games. 400 rooms occupy the remaining space, along with three restaurants and the Paradise Theater, which seats 900.
It’s the sixth casino in the Shreveport-Bossier area and the first new facility in more than a decade.
Crowds estimated at more than 75,000 took to the newly named LandShark Beach at Resorts Casino in Atlantic City, Saturday, for a free concert that included a surprise 90-minute performance by Jimmy Buffett. The iconic beach musician was in his element, wowing fans with hits including “Margaritaville” and “Come Monday” while kicking-off a summer-long series of live entertainment at the hotel. The free beach concert included performances by Andy Grammer, Mac McAnally and Wilson Phillips.
Resorts Casino Hotel, Atlantic City’s very first casino back in 1978, has been reinvigorated with a total of $70 million in renovations, including the $35-million Margaritaville complex, which has infused the hotel with a fun, beach vibe much in evidence on Saturday. The Margaritaville complex encompasses a Margaritaville Café, LandShark Bar & Grill, Margaritaville-themed casino area, Five O’clock Somewhere bar, retail stores, and coffee shop.
Two days before he plays the Comcast Center, Jimmy Buffett will play an intimate show at the Paradise Rock Club in Boston to benefit The One Fund.
On June 20, surf rocker Jimmy Buffett will perform a special show to benefit The One Fund, which raises money for survivors of the April 15 bombings and the families of those killed in the attack. Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band will perform at 8 p.m. June 20, at the Paradise Rock Club in Boston, LiveNation announced today.
Tickets are priced at $99 and go on sale Friday, June 14th at Noon ET through TicketMaster.
Resorts Hotel & Casino, where Margaritaville just opened in Atlantic City, is hosting a free concert on the beach this Saturday. The event lists Andy Grammar, Mac McAnally, and Wilson Phillips as performers, plus a “special guest.”
Many are speculating that the special guest will be Jimmy Buffett. It does make sense as Buffett typically performs at his new properties shortly after they open.
Jimmy Buffett joined Willie Nelson at his show on Montauk this weekend:
Legendary country singer Willie Nelson drew an appreciative crowd by land and sea—well, pond—to the Surf Lodge in Montauk Sunday evening for a concert in which Jimmy Buffett joined him for a couple of songs.
Mr. Nelson, who recently celebrated a birthday, played straight through, noting at one point that he was “studying being 80” and that it was looking pretty great.
The concert was free, with 100 reserved admission tickets going for $100 and raising money for the Montauk Playhouse Foundation, whose community center, a work in progress as well as already in use, is right down the road. Those who hadn’t snagged a guaranteed spot at the Surf Lodge used their own ingenuity, plying Fort Pond on paddleboards and in kayaks and sailboats and forming a flotilla right next to the restaurant. Mr. Nelson turned and acknowledged them at least once, inspiring toots and the raising of paddles in salute from the pond.
