Vancouver, the wait is over! Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band return to Vancouver for the first time in 24 years to perform at Pepsi Live at Rogers Arena for one night one, Friday, October 13 at 8pm, as part of Jimmy Buffett’s “I Don’t Know” Tour 2017.
Local Parrotheads won’t want to miss their chance to soak in the full Margaritaville experience.
“24 years is a long time to wait, but Rogers Arena is thrilled to welcome Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band back to the city this October,” commented Michael Doyle, President Live Entertainment, Rogers Arena. “Bringing Margaritaville to our venue will inevitably be a concert highlight of 2017.”
Turning Margaritaville into a musical has been an idea for quite a while but now it’s gearing up to make its debut. “Escape to Margaritaville” will have its world premiere at the La Jolla Playhouse, in La Jolla, California, in May 2017. After that, the musical will make a pre-Broadway stop in New Orleans, Houston and Chicago. The play will feature the music and lifestyle of Jimmy Buffett, from an original story, and includes both new songs and the most-loved Buffett classics. Speaking of Buffett classics, the most famous of them all, “Margaritaville” has been inducted into the 2016 Grammy Hall of Fame for its cultural and historic significance. Another milestone this year is the 40th anniversary of the 1977 album Changes In Latitudes, Changes In Attitudes, which featured the debut of “Margaritaville.” Other iconic songs from that record are regularly performed on tour as requested by the fans, such as the title track, “Changes In Latitudes, Changes In Attitudes,” “Lovely Cruise,” and “Banana Republics.”
