Jimmy Buffett is a well-known folk country singer and songwriter, famous in part for the popular songs "Margaritaville" and "Cheeseburger in Paradise." Beginning his career in Nashville as a post-collegiate country singer, he signed his first record contract in 1973. With instant party hits, he soon gained a loyal following of fans devoted to his unique brand of “island escapism.”
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 record also includes the hit, “Cheeseburger In Paradise,” a Parrothead favorite, 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 musical will go on tour in 2019.
“We are thrilled to welcome Jimmy Buffett back to The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion for our 30th Season,” said Jerry MacDonald, President, and CEO. “Jimmy is a part of our history, as he performed during our inaugural season in 1990 and this show will be his 23rd on our stage. He always puts on a great concert and is a crowd favorite at The Pavilion. Fins up!”
