LAS VEGAS (April 6, 2016) - The wait is over. Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band return to perform at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas for one night only, Saturday, October 15 as part of Jimmy Buffett’s “I Don't Know'” Tour 2016.
Local Parrotheads won't want to miss their chance to soak in the full Margaritaville experience.
“We are thrilled to see Jimmy Buffett bringing Parrotheads back together in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand Garden Arena,” said Greg Siegel of Live Nation. “His fans are in for another incredible time this year – Las Vegas is a magical place to experience Margaritaville!”
Parrotheads have already given the “Fins Up” for the first ever floating Margaritaville Restaurant and 5 O'Clock Somewhere Bar aboard the all new Norwegian Cruise Line, Norwegian Escape. It’s based in Miami and sails the Caribbean Sea. Meanwhile, back on land, the idea of turning Margaritaville into a musical has been percolating for quite a while but now it's gearing up to make its debut. The musical will have its world premiere at the La Jolla Playhouse, in La Jolla, California, in May 2017. It will feature the music and lifestyle of Jimmy Buffett, from an original story, and includes both new songs and the most-loved Buffett classics. Speaking of Buffett classics, the most famous of them all, "Margaritaville" has been inducted into the 2016 Grammy Hall of Fame for its cultural and historic significance. Only those recordings that have influenced and inspired both music creators and fans for generations are considered for this most special honor.
