I have been a Buffet fan since 1977!!! While a freshman in college at Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, NC I attended my first Jimmy Buffet Concert in the gym there! I had heard of him and begged my roomie to go with me. Been a faithful Parrot Head since then. The only problem is I can find no archived information, no ticket stub, no t-shirt or anything about this "concert". Did anyone else attend or was it just a "drunken dream" of mine?
I also attended that concert. It was on a Thursday evening. I am almost positive (95 percent sure) it was on 11-3-77, though, it could have been on 10-27-77. It was on one of those dates. Jesse Winchester was the opening act.
Margaritaville was a hit that summer, but Buffett was not yet a "major" act, though he was on the cusp of being one, and was by the following summer. This was the only time I ever saw Buffett and my favorite concert of all time.
