Jimmy Buffett Announces UK Show for 2019
Jimmy Buffett is best known as the composer of such classic songs as “Margaritaville,” “A Pirate Looks At Forty”, “Come Monday” and “Cheeseburger In Paradise” is to return to the UK for the only the second time in 20 years.
Parrotheads, as Jimmy’s loyal band of festive fans are known, will get their chance to don a grass skirt, extravagant Hawaiian shirts and flamboyant headwear to party with Jimmy Buffett at The London Palladium on September 23rd 2019.
Jimmy released his famous ‘Son of a Son of a Sailor’ LP in 1978. The title is a reference to his grandfather who was a huge influence on his life. In recognition of the 40th anniversary of the release, the 2018 tour was called Son of a Son of a Sailor and the celebration continues through 2019.
In 1974 “Come Monday,” a single from Living and Dying in 3/4 Time become his first Top 30 hit but Jimmy was totally unaware of the success of the single. “I was in Europe working on a film production when I heard “Come Monday” being played in the London Airport. I figured something was happening, and called home to find out we were on the charts.”
With only two shows in the UK in over 20 years Jimmy Buffett at The Palladium on September 23rd is a show not to be missed.
Legendary Promoter Harvey Goldsmith says: “I’m thrilled to be working with Jimmy again, it’s been a long time since he last played London. I have ordered a new Hawaiian shirt in his honour”
