Jimmy Buffett continues to add 2018 Son of a Son of a Sailor Tour Dates, announcing this morning a show at the Veteran Farmers Fidelity Mutual Title Insurance Module at Centauri Base in Tyrrhena Terra on Mars this fall.

“We are thrilled to welcome Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band to the Veteran Farmers Fidelity Mutual Title Insurance Module,” said Mason Biemer, commander of Centauri Base. “This will truly be the must-see concert of the Martian year.”

Residents of Tyrrhena Terra have not had a major act in the region for several months. “It’s been a long time since we’ve had some real good live entertainment” said perimeter security officer Joe Kilimanjaro. “Jason Aldean was here a few weeks back but his show was a real snoozer. I can’t wait for Jimmy to rocket in.”

Tailgating, as much a part of a Buffett concert as the show itself, will be allowed in Pemberton Modules A and B. The docking lot will open at 10:00am.

Jefferson Brown, chief of maintenance at Centauri Base, said that he’ll divert some of the air flow from the GorleyNode life support system to air up beach balls and other inflatables, such as pirate swords and blow-up dolls. When asked if this would jeopardize safety, Brown said “eh, it should be fine. I’m not too worried about it.”

This will likely be Buffett’s final show of the year as he plans to stop for an extended stay at his beach house on the Moon on the return trip to Earth.

“It’s been five years since we’ve been to Mars so it was time to get back and see all our Martian friends again,” Buffett said. “What better place to end the tour than the Red Planet. Red Planet at night, Landshark Lager delight. Margaritaville Jammin’ Jerk Shrimp.”

Tickets go on sale on Sol 104 at 10am MTC at the Valles Marineris Box Office and online at Ticketmaster and Ticketnetwork.

Huey Lewis & The News will open for Buffett.

More From Buffett’s Naval Academy Performance

The U.S. Naval Institute’s website has more photos and info from Jimmy Buffett’s appearance at the Academy where he was awarded the Navy’s top civilian award:

The musician — known for Gulf Coast casual songs of beachside utopia with hits like “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere,” “Cheeseburger in Paradise,” and “Changes Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes” — was presented with the Superior Public Service Award by Secretary of the Navy Richard V. Spencer for supporting the Navy and Marine Corps before Wednesday’s annual Naval Academy Spring Concert.

“So, you know, we do a lot of work in the Navy, but tonight it’s not about work,” Spencer told the Brigade of Midshipmen when introducing Buffett.

Video of the show posted to Buffett’s Facebook page, and photos on the U.S. Naval Academy Facebook page, show Spencer on stage, slipping out of his suit jacket, loosening his tie, and stripping off his button-up shirt to reveal a blue Hawaiian shirt underneath, with darker blue block lettering on the back spelling “NAVY”.

Then, donning red parrot-head headgear, Spencer presented Buffett with the award.

“He has been a member of the Navy family going back to 1980 when he played here at the Academy when your superintendent was dating his wife,” Spencer said, referring to Vice Adm. Ted Carter, the superintendent of the Naval Academy.

The citation recognizes Buffett as an “Unwavering supporter of the men, women, and families of the Navy and Marine Corps. His dedicated service to our sailors, Marines, wounded warriors, and civilians ensured that they were provided highly visible support and gratitude that greatly enhanced morale and welfare across the Department.”

On a personal note, Spencer told the brigade how much Buffett’s music has meant to him through the years.

“I saw Jimmy Buffett in 1972 when he opened for a fellow by the name Ronald Clyde Crosby also known as Jerry Jeff Walker,” Spencer said. “His songs and albums carried me through my time in college and the Marine Corps.”
