Jimmy Buffett & The Coral Reefer Band
Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band will perform at Bridgestone Arena for one night only, SATURDAY April 27 at 8:00PM, as part of Jimmy Buffett’s “Son Of A Son Of A Sailor” Tour 2019. Doors will open at 6:00PM. Ticketholders are encouraged to arrive downtown early due to heavy traffic and street closings.
Local Parrotheads won't want to miss their chance to soak in the full Margaritaville experience. “I cannot think of a better way to get an early start to the summer than hosting a Saturday night Jimmy Buffett concert at Bridgestone Arena,” said David Kells, Senior Vice President, Entertainment and Marketing. “With his deep connections to Nashville, you know it’s going to be a party to remember!”
Jimmy released his famous Son Of A Son Of A Sailor LP in 1978, and sang the title track on Saturday Night Live that year. The song was written about his grandfather, James Delaney Buffett, Sr., who was a huge influence on his life. The tour is called Son Of A Son Of A Sailor as 2018 was the record's 40th anniversary, and the celebration continues through 2019. The record also includes the hit, “Cheeseburger In Paradise,” a Parrothead favourite, as well as “Livingston Saturday Night” and “Cowboy in the Jungle.” The long-awaited Margaritaville musical, "Escape to Margaritaville," opened on Broadway in New York, had its world premiere in La Jolla, California, and then made pre-Broadway stops in New Orleans, Houston and Chicago. The original Broadway cast recording of the musical was recently released. The musical will go on tour in 2019.
