Buffett concert to be broadcast live on June 19 at Stars and Stripes

A-J MEDIA ENTERTAINMENT EDITOR

 

Jimmy Buffett told reporters that he “grew up going to drive-in movies,” which is the primary reason he and his Coral Reefer Band will perform a full-length concert on June 19 at the Coyote Drive-In Theater, 223 N.E. Fourth St. in Fort Worth.

Buffett is touring in support of his 2013 album “Songs from St. Somewhere.”

Traveling with a professional film crew, Buffett’s concert will be broadcast live at more than 170 other digital drive-in cinemas nationwide, including at 9:30 p.m. June 19 the Stars and Stripes Drive-In, 5101 U.S. 84 in Lubbock.

Tickets for the concert, called “Live at the Drive-In,” are $18 per person for the Lubbock screening, with children age 3 and younger admitted free.

Gates at the Lubbock drive-in theater open at 7 p.m. on June 19.

The concert is open to all ages, but tickets are not being sold at the Stars and Stripes’ box office. Rather, tickets are on sale online by clicking on Show Times at Tickets.DriveInUSA.com. The local drive-in utilizes radio sound.

Ryan Smith, Stars and Stripes owner, said, “If arriving in one vehicle, please purchase your tickets in one transaction. If arriving in separate vehicles, please complete one transaction per vehicle. Example: three cars would need three transactions.

“Also, we are asking everyone to please arrive 45 minutes before show time to guarantee admittance. The earlier that a person arrives, the more parking choices will be available.”

Call 749-7469 for more details.

Fans paid $125 per person to attend the sold out concert at the Coyote in Fort Worth.

Aside from the Stars and Stripes in Lubbock, the concert will be shown at only three other drive-in theaters in Texas. They are the Big Sky Drive-In in Midland, the Galaxy Drive-In in Ennis and the Sky-Vue Drive-In in Tyler.

Buffett, born on Christmas Day in 1946, is 67. He began recording his carefree country-folk albums after relocating to Key West, Fla., in the early 1970s.

Just a few of his popular songs include “Margaritaville,” “Cheeseburger in Paradise,” “Fins,” “Come Monday,” “Son of a Son of a Sailor,” “A Pirate Looks at Forty,” “Changes in Latitude, Changes in Attitude,” “Pencil Thin Mustache,” “Why Don’t We Get Drunk” and “Grapefruit, Juicy Fruit.”

His fans refer to themselves as Parrotheads.
