21 April 2017
The King of ‘Margaritaville’ himself, Jimmy Buffett will be performing two New Zealand shows this April, after an exclusive Byron Bay Bluesfest 2017 performance.
Famous for such classic hits as ‘Cheeseburger in Paradise’, ‘Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes’ and of course the all-time classic ‘Margaritaville’, Jimmy will play Tuesday 18 April at the Opera House in Wellington and Friday 21 April at the Theatre Royal in Christchurch.
For these semi-acoustic shows, Jimmy Buffett will be accompanied by three members of the legendary Coral Reefer Band; Mac McAnally on Guitar and Vocals, Robert Greenidge on Steel Drums, and Eric Darken on Percussion.
For the few that are uninitiated, singer/songwriter/author Jimmy Buffett has become a legend of popular culture. He has recorded over fifty albums, most of which have gone gold, platinum or multi-platinum. His sold-out concert tours are an annual rite of summer for his legions of fans, affectionately known as Parrotheads, many of whom are professionals by day and who dress in spectacular and outrageous tropical outfits and headwear when Jimmy comes to town. In 2016 the song ‘Margaritaville’ was inducted into the 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 honour.
