It will be great to have Jimmy back in town. Florida Keys News reports:
The newly-announced performances are exciting news for local Florida Keys Parrot Heads. Tickets, went on sale at noon Friday, Feb. 3, in person only at the Key West Theater box office at 512 Eaton St. and sold out by that afternoon. The theater provides an intimate venue with 278 seats for each of the two newly-announced shows. The now sold-out performances at Key West’s Coffee Butler Amphitheater in Truman Waterfront Park take place at 7 p.m. Feb. 9 and 11.
The internationally acclaimed Buffett lived and wrote in Key West during some of his most productive years, and the island is believed to be the inspiration for tunes including his smash hit “Margaritaville.”
As well as peppering his song lyrics with frequent Key West references, Buffett established his first Margaritaville Store and Margaritaville Café on the island. He also maintains a recording studio overlooking the former shrimp docks.
