North Little Rock, AR (Saturday, January 14, 2012) The Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band concert is sold out.
Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band will perform at VERIZON ARENA for one night only on Thursday, March 1 at 8pm, as part of the WELCOME TO FIN LAND Tour 2012.
Today was just outstanding. A complete wall to wall sell-out! We sincerely thank all of the Jimmy Buffett fans throughout the great state of Arkansas and the surrounding region for their tremendous support. said Bob Roux, President of North America Concerts at Live Nation. Michael Marion, GM of Verizon Arena, said Today was one of the fastest sell-outs in our 12-year history. We knew we had lots of Razorback fans in Arkansas, but today we found out we may actually have more Parrotheads.
Encores, Jimmy's newest release, is a live acoustic double CD, featuring 22 of Jimmy's intimate final encore songs recorded in different U. S. cities as well as Paris during the 2009 tour. This unique collection showcases Jimmy solo acoustic (12 songs), includes some special guests and is unlike anything he's released before.
