Saturday night’s Jimmy Buffett concert in Little Rock has been canceled due to extreme winter weather.
From the Verizon Arena:
Verizon Arena regrets to announce that tomorrow night’s Jimmy Buffett concert, Saturday December 7th, has been cancelled due to severe winter weather conditions, including freezing rain, sleet and snow.
The National Weather Service has issued an ice storm warning for Pulaski County and the surrounding counties, prompting officials to cancel this weekend’s concert.
Michael Marion, General Manager of Verizon Arena, said “I’ve spoken personally to the Arkansas Highway Department, our local meteorologists and have read all of the reports and the conditions for this weekend are simply prohibitive for us to host Jimmy Buffett tomorrow night. We regret we have had to cancel the concert, but our patrons safety is always first and foremost.”

The Courier Journal has a review of the show: “Jimmy Buffett, Parrotheads turn Yum! Center show into a beach blanket drinking party”
Buffett and his Coral Reefer Band delivered more than two hours of party music, and the Parrotheads obliged in grand, two-fisted tradition. Everything was about creating a laid-back, buzzed-on-the-beach vibe, which was personified by guy fans wearing plastic grass skirts and Buffett going barefoot.
Buffett has four shows remaining this year: Minneapolis, Tulsa, Little Rock, and Honolulu. There’s still time to get tickets!

Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band played an intimate show on Thursday night at the 600-capacity Belly Up in Solana Beach.
Thursday evening was a big night at one of San Diego’s oldest and best known clubs. Hundreds of fans packed the Belly Up in Solana Beach to see Jimmy Buffett perform. San Diego 6 went out to talk to some of the “Parrot Heads” who began lining up hours before the concert began.
“We party with a purpose is our motto. It’s just kind of what he stands for, you know helping each other,” said self-described Parrot Head Gail Folsom. Like many of the fans standing in line, Folsom had seen Buffett many times. But never in a place like the Belly Up. Buffett typically sells out stadiums that seat tens of thousands. The Belly Up holds a total of 600 people. “I’m really excited cause this is like the closest I’ll ever be to Jimmy Buffett I think,” Folsom said.
