Jimmy Buffett and The Coral Reefer Band perform at Orlando’s Amway Center for 1 Night Only

Here’s the opportunity for Central Florida Parrotheads to soak in the Margaritaville experience as part of Buffett’s, “This One’s For You Tour.”

Orlando, the wait is over, Jimmy Buffett and The Coral Reefer Band: Thursday, April 16
(Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, January 9 at 10 a.m.)
“Spring just isn’t the same without Jimmy Buffett,” said Orlando Venues Executive Director Allen Johnson. “We are thrilled to welcome Jimmy’s return to the Amway Center and look forward to another ‘Escape to Margaritaville.’ Fins up!”
This marks the 40th anniversary of the release of Buffett’s “A1A” album, which is his first Top 40 record and includes the hit, “A Pirate Looks At Forty,” a perennial concert favorite. Another popular hit song performed at every concert is “Margaritaville,” which is ranked 234th on the Recording Industry Association of America’s list of Songs of the Century. Among the 30+ albums Buffett has released, eight are gold albums and nine are platinum or multi-platinum. His latest album, “Songs from St. Somewhere,” was released last August. In 2003, Buffett won his first Country Music Award (CMA) for his song, “It’s 5 O’clock Somewhere,” with Alan Jackson and was nominated again in 2007 for the CMA Event of the Year award for his song, “Hey Good Lookin,” featuring Alan Jackson and George Strait.

This year’s tour celebrates Buffett’s 40th touring season. The popularity of his trademark Key West and laid back atmosphere at his live shows gained a devoted following of fans, called Parrottheads. He consistently earns a spot on Billboard’s highest grossing tours. In 2014, Buffett earned the number 32 spot on Billboard’s, “Music’s Top 40 Money Makers: The Rich List.”

The Orlando Magic served as the developer of the Amway Center, which hosts major national events, concerts and family shows.  Opened in the fall of 2010, the facility is owned and operated by the City of Orlando on behalf of the Central Florida community. The Amway Center was designed to reflect the character of the community, meet the goals of the users and build on the legacy of sports and entertainment in Orlando. The building’s exterior features a modern blend of glass and metal materials, along with ever-changing graphics via a monumental wall along one facade. A 180-foot tall tower serves as a beacon amid the downtown skyline. The 875,000 square foot, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certified building features a sustainable, environmentally-friendly design and unmatched technology, including 1,100 digital monitors, the tallest high-definition video board in an NBA venue and multiple premium amenities available to all patrons in the building. Amway Center was recently honored with TheStadiumBusiness Awards’ 2013 Customer Experience Award and named SportsBusiness Journal’s 2012 Sports Facility of the Year.
