KEY WEST, Florida Keys — Singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett and his Coral Reefer Band are to perform two concerts in Key West, his former home and the island widely credited with inspiring his signature sound, Thursday and Saturday, Feb. 9 and 11.
The performances are scheduled for 7 p.m. both nights at Key West’s Coffee Butler Amphitheater in Truman Waterfront Park. Tickets are to go on sale at 10 a.m. EST Friday, Jan. 20, at ticketmaster.com, with a four-ticket limit per customer.
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.
