Jimmy Buffet Reschedules Three Florida Shows Amid Shoulder Injury
Jimmy Buffett & The Coral Reef Band will no longer make stops in Jacksonville, Orlando, and Tampa this year since the singer needs shoulder surgery.
The gigs were originally set to take place on December 5 at the Amway Center in Orlando, December 10 at Jacksonville’s VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena, and December 11 at the Amalie Arena in Tampa as a part of his Son of a Son of a Sailor High Tide Tour. A statement released earlier this week noted that because Buffett needs to recover from shoulder surgery, the shows have been moved to December 5, 8, and 11, 2020, respectively. Original tickets will be honored at the new show date, but fans who can no longer attend can seek refunds via point of purchase. Tickets are still available for the new date.
“Jimmy Buffett & The Coral Reefer Band regret the postponement, but look forward to partying in 2020 in Florida!” a statement on Buffett’s website reads.
The “Margaritaville” singer had been touring since March, hitting cities along the way like Sacramento, Alpharetta, and Dallas in support of the 40th anniversary of Buffett’s eighth studio album, Son Of A Son Of A Sailor. In September, Buffett extended the tour to hit five more cities in late 2019.
