Jimmy Buffett with special guest Caroline Jones
Local Parrotheads won't want to miss their chance to soak in the full Margaritaville experience.
“We are thrilled to welcome Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band back to North Charleston Coliseum," said Frank Lapsley, General Manager of North Charleston Coliseum. "There is nothing like a Jimmy Buffett concert to kick off spring. Don't miss the party of 2018."
The long-awaited Margaritaville musical, "Escape to Margaritaville," had its world premiere in La Jolla, California, and has made pre-Broadway stops in New Orleans, Houston and Chicago. It will open on Broadway in New York at the Marquis Theatre on March 15, 2018. The original Broadway cast recording of the musical will be released in the spring.
Jimmy has a new and very special project just released titled Buried Treasure. As Jimmy describes it: “Buried Treasure is a unique collection of songs that I wrote in the early days of my career and recorded in Mobile and in Nashville. When we first found the tapes of Buried Treasure, I didn’t know that it would turn out to be such a unique situation where I’d actually get to honor and introduce the people who started me out.” Buried Treasure, Volume 1 was released on November 17, 2017 on Mailboat Records in standard and deluxe packaging.
