Multiple outlets are now reporting that the Gulf Coast concert with Jimmy Buffett, Kenny Chesney, Zac Brown Band and others has been rescheduled for Sunday, July 11th.

Officials worried that winds and storm surge from Tropical Storm Alex could threaten the stability of the beach in Gulf Shores, Alabama where the concert is to be held. The stage, which had been going up this week, is already being taken down.

A Facebook fan tells us that a note was put up on Margaritaville.com, including a quote from Jimmy, but was quickly taken down.

Your tickets to the show will of course still be honored on July 11th. If you made reservations with a hotel or condo, call them to discuss your accomodations.

Update – Here is Buffett’s statement from Margaritaville.com:

“Nobody hates this more than I do but I guess, as the song says, it’s hard to reason with hurricane season,” Jimmy said. “For those going anyway, thank you. My sister Lulu will take good care of you. For the rest of you, we will see you July 11th!”

Gulf Coast Concert May Be Postponed

There are reports that the July 1st Jimmy Buffett concert with Kenny Chesney, Zac Brown Band, and others on the beach in Gulf Shores may be postponed due to concern over storm surge from Tropical Storm Alex:

Alabama Press-Register:

City officials this afternoon are huddling to discuss what to do about the Jimmy Buffett concert scheduled for Thursday.

The free concert — to be simulcast on the CMT network — could be postponed because of concerns over wind and other effects from the storm, which is expected to go ashore in Mexico or Texas later this week.

As of 4:20 p.m. today, no official announcement had been made with regard to a change in status for the highly anticipated concert, in which native son Buffett was to appear with a cast of friends and special guests in an attempt to boost tourism and spirits in light of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

As of lunchtime today, the Gulf Shores City Council was holding a special meeting to discuss plans for the show and a crane was lifting parts of the state into place.

Buffett World will post the news when an official decision has been made.

The show was back on the road Saturday night as Jimmy and the band began the Under The Big Top Tour with a performance at the Ford Amphitheater in Tampa, Florida.

Notable additions to the set list this year include “Knees of My Heart,” “Frank and Lola,” “If the Phone Doesn’t Ring, It’s Me,” “Big Top” and others. “Tin Cup Chalice” finished things off. Buffett also added Mac McAnally’s song “Back Where I Come From,” which Kenny Chesney has made popular over the years.

View the entire set list here.

In a first for Buffett, portions of the show were streamed live on ustream.tv (part of the soundcheck was streamed earlier in the day too).

Update – The videos have been removed from the Big Top Tour ustream channel. You may only be able to watch live streaming in the future.

South Park Lampoons Buffett Again in 200th Episode

On Wednesday night Comedy Central aired the 200th episode of South Park, bringing back many of the celebrities they’ve made fun of over the years, including Jimmy Buffett.

The premise of the episode was that all of the celebrities were banding together to to file a class action lawsuit against the town of South Park for the constant ridiculing. They’re led by Tom Cruise, who agrees to drop the lawsuit if the town can arrange a meeting between him and the prophet Muhammad. Cruise believes that Muhammad is impervious to ridicule, and that they too can become impervious.

As Cruise pitches his idea to the other celebrities, he says to the cartoon Buffett: “Jimmy Buffett, how would you like it if no one could call your music drunken, frat boy monkey garbage?”

Buffett responds: “I’d…. I’d love it.”

Watch the full episode here. The part with Buffett starts around the 7:05 mark.

Buffett was first lampooned on the show back in 2008 when he was shown performing “AIDSburger in Paradise” at a benefit concert for Cartman after he was diagnosed with AIDS. Watch the clip.
