Perennial Panhandle favorite Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band is returning to the Wharf Amphitheater at Orange Beach on April 23, 2019, for a single show.
Tickets for the “Son of a Son of a Sailor Tour” go on sale in just one week, at 10 a.m. Nov. 2, and can be purchased through Ticketmaster or at The Wharf Box Office.
Seen by many as epitomizing the Gulf Coast lifestyle, Buffett’s many hits include “Margaritaville,” “Come Monday,” “Fins,” “Volcano,” “Cheeseburger in Paradise,” “Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes,” “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere,” “A Pirate Looks at Forty” and “One Particular Harbour.” Those songs, known to fans as “The Big Nine,” are well known for appearing in virtually every Buffett set list.
Buffett has strong connections to the region, having been born in Pascagoula, Mississippi, and growing up in Mobile and Fairhope, Alabama. His sister, Lucy, owns the well-known Lulu’s in Gulf Shores, Alabama, and recently opened a second Lulu’s in Destin. And of course, Buffett’s brand is all over Pensacola Beach’s Margaritaville Beach Resort.
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 favorite, as well as “Livingston Saturday Night” and “Cowboy in the Jungle.”
Tickets are available at Ticketmaster.com or can be charged by phone at 800-745-3000.
