This Week in History
Jimmy Buffett is best known for his hit “Margaritaville”, which was named number 234 on a list of “Songs of the Century”. His shows consist of 26-30 songs and 2 separate encores; before performing his final song, he tells the Parrotheads to “get their fins up”. He performed at Philips Arena on November 25, 2001. This 2001 “A Beach Odyssey Tour” was preceded by an August 2000 performance on the White House lawn for President Bill Clinton. Buffett has written three top-selling books, Tales from Margaritaville, Where is Joe Merchant, and A Pirate Looks A Fifty.
