Great Shows: Jam with Jimmy Buffett and Dave Matthews Band tickets, rock with Radiohead!
Jimmy Buffett was in Miami on Monday night at Shane Battier’s Battioke charity event. Held at the Fillmore Miami Beach, the event benefits Battier’s Take Charge Foundation.
The event also featured a charity auction, in which Buffett was the high bidder ($24,000!) on a locker room-used celebratory bottle of champagne from last year’s championship that was signed by the team.
Buffett also took to the karaoke stage for Marvin Gay’s “I Heard It Through The Grapevine” with Pat Riley. Watch a short video of it on Instagram.
Shane Battier is a big parrothead, and even quoted Jimmy when he joined the Heat in 2011.
Jimmy Buffett made his annual trek to Chicago on Saturday night, but instead of playing the usual Toyota Park or Tinley Park, Jimmy played at the new FirstMerit Bank Pavilion on Northerly Island.
Take a look at the set list from the show here.
The Chicago Blackhawks’ Patrick Kane brought out the Stanley Cup at the concert. This wasn’t the first time that Kane did this. He also showed up with the cup at Toyota Park in 2010.

As the Miami Heat battle the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Playoffs, ESPN has a piece on the numerous music celebrities that attend Heat games at the America Airlines Arena.
Jimmy is interviewed and discusses his longtime love of the Heat (he’s been a season ticket holder since 1988) and his infamous ejection in 2001. The piece shows some rare footage from the ejection.
The Spurs are currently up 1-0 on the Heat in the Finals.
Reds pitcher Bronson Arroyo attended Jimmy Buffett’s concert at Riverbend Amphitheater in Cincinnati last night and talked a little bit about it today with nationally syndicated radio host Jim Rome.
Arroyo discussed how he spent part of the time on a boat in the river, and then he and Rome talked about how Buffett has an enviable life.
Several of you fell for it, but our article on Sunday about Saints coach Sean Payton joining Jimmy Buffett’s band this summer was indeed an April Fools joke. Or was it?
Buffett played a free show at Woldenberg Park in New Orleans on Sunday night and during “Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes” Sean Payton came out on stage and played the bongos!
Jimmy played to the hometown crowd, sporting a “Free Sean Payton” shirt during his set. Don’t look for the coach to be Lounging at the Lagoon this summer though. Our story was a complete and total fabrication.
Thankfully for manatees, last year’s April Fools story never came true: “Buffett reverses position on saving manatees.”
