Parrotheads in Indianapolis were holding out hope for a late announcement of Buffett’s usual tour stop at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater but the Indy Star reports that it’s not going happen:
For the first time in 25 years, the summer concert season in Noblesville will be free of fins, volcanoes and cheeseburgers.
Jimmy Buffett, whose perennial summer tours have been a tradition in Noblesville for decades, is skipping Indianapolis on his 2015 “Workin’ and Playin'” tour, sources in Buffett’s camp confirm. Buffett has played Indy at least once every summer since 1990 (and, we should note for political purposes, generally announces his tour dates in January or February).
Dustin Duncan, membership director of the PHIndy Parrothead Club, says his group traditionally schedules a charity event prior to Buffett’s local stop. “We haven’t made any solid plans this year, since we’ve been in limbo hoping Jimmy would announce a show,” he said. Duncan said his group would head to Cincinnati this summer instead.
Parrotheads up for a road trip can still investigate that June 23 show at Cincinnati’s Riverbend Music Center and June 27 at the First Midwest Bank Amphtitheater in Tinley Park, Ill. shows. Tickets for both shows remain available.
