Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band will head to Australia on April 14th to perform at the Byron Bay Bluesfest.
Bluesfest is thrilled to be starting the New Year on a high by announcing the King of Margaritaville himself, Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefers will be performing exclusively in Australia at Bluesfest in 2017. Could there be a location more perfect for an artist famous for hits such as ‘Cheeseburger in Paradise’, ‘Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes’ and of course the classic Margaritaville. Bluesfest can’t wait for his fans to enjoy these hits plus many more just outside of idyllic Byron Bay.
Other acts slated to play Bluesfest include Santana, Patti Smith, the Doobie Brothers, The Lumineers, St Paul & the Broken Bones, and Mary J. Blige.

Jimmy Buffett played two shows at Wrigley Field in 2005, and he’ll reportedly head back there in 2017 after the Cubs won the World Series this year.
A twitter friend that was listening to Radio Margaritaville heard Jimmy make the pronouncement.
The 2005 Wrigley Field shows were the first ever concerts at the landmark stadium. It took Buffett a decade to persuade the front office to hold a show there. The back-to-back gigs were wildly successful and a live DVD was released a year later: Live at Wrigley Field.

Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band have just announced that they’ll play a show in San Diego on October 18th at Humphrey’s Concerts By The Bay, his first appearance at the venue since 1984.
Humphreys has a capacity of just 1,450. Securing Buffett to performs there is a coup for the venue, which opened in 1982 and this year has featured concerts by Bob Dylan, Ringo Starr and the Tom Petty-led band Mudcrutch.
“Buffett’s agent called us in December and asked us to hold a date in October. They didn’t tell us who it was for, which is not that unusual for a big act,” said John Wojas, the vice president for AEG Live San Diego, which exclusively books Humphreys.
“Two weeks later they told us the hold was for Buffett, and we were thrilled. Then they said we couldn’t announce it until after KAABOO, which is fine, because this will sell out in an instant. The fastest sell-outs we’ve had at Humphreys are Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Steely Dan, Whitney Houston and Robert Plant & Alison Krauss. This could beat those.”
Tickets for the show at Humphreys go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster.com, and by phone at (800) 745-3000. Tickets are priced at $159 each, plus service charges, with a four-ticket per customer limit. No tickets will be sold at Humphreys or at Ticketmaster outlets.
Also note this about tickets:
To prevent ticket-scalping, only paperless tickets will be sold. Upon arriving at the venue, attendees must have a valid ID and the credit card they used to purchase their tickets. Ushers at the entrance will scan each credit card, print out a receipt, ensure the name on the ID matches the name on the credit card, then escort attendees to their seats.
“This is the first time we’ve ever used paperless tickets,” said Humphreys Concerts Vice President Bobbi Brieske. “It’s to make sure tickets stay in the hands of the fans who bought them.”
Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville Casino and restaurant opened its doors on Thursday in Tulsa, and officials said that Jimmy will play at the new theater in late January:
Jimmy Buffett is tentatively set to play the new showroom at Margaritaville on Jan. 28, Creek Nation officials announced Thursday during the grand opening for the casino.
The resort will feature a 2,500-seat concert venue.
The new 50,000-square-foot Margaritaville casino is the first part of the resort to open. A 483-room hotel hotel will open inl December; the theater and the outdoor area next to the river will be ready in 2017.
Jimmy Buffett has added another show in the Boston area in August:
Thursday, August 11th 2016
House of Blues Boston
“Jimmy Buffett’s deep ties to Boston are unmistakable: from countless sold out concerts to helping make Boston Strong: An Evening of Support and Celebration an extraordinary success,” said Live Nation’s John Innamorato. “We are humbled, honored and above all excited to welcome Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band back to Lansdowne Street!”
With the capacity of the House of Blues hovering around 2,200, this tour stop will be among the most intimate on Buffett’s tour, compared to the nearly 20,000 seat capacity of the Xfinity Center in Mansfield.
Tickets go on sale Thursday, July 28th at 10:00am through Ticketmaster.
