Caroline Jones on What It’s Like Touring with Jimmy

April 1st, 2020


SongFacts.com has an interview with Caroline Jones where she discusses what it is like going on tour with Jimmy Buffett:

Songfacts: What’s it like being on tour with Jimmy Buffett?

Jones: It’s really, really fun. It’s a whole culture and a whole lifestyle in itself. In the beginning it was something to get used to because I hadn’t seen it before, but the Parrot Heads are just such a special, unique group of people and it’s so interesting because they’re all walks of life with all different jobs – doctors and lawyers by day and then at night they put a parrot on their head and have a margarita in their hand and are wearing a Hawaiian shirt and flip-flops.

Something that touring with Jimmy taught me is the value of a shared value system, and also imagination. Being able to imagine yourself in his song in a place where you have no responsibilities and no burdens and no cold weather and you’re just living free and unburdened. That emotion through music is so powerful for people that they spend their hard-earned money to go to that show and feel those feelings. It’s really powerful and really special. It’s the power of art and music, and Jimmy has tapped into that very authentically because that’s what he loves. He changes people’s lives. He inspires them through that.

Songfacts: Can you elaborate on “shared value system”?

Pittsburgh Concertgoers to Receive Refund, Sort of

July 10th, 2018


Due to a bottleneck at security lines getting into Saturday night’s concert at KeyBank Pavilion in Pittsburgh, many fans were very late getting into the Jimmy Buffett show. Live Nation will be offering refunds in the form of “concert cash”:

Fans who did not pass through the gates of the Buggettstown venue by 8:25 p.m. will receive “concert cash” equal to the value of their Ticketmaster tickets, according to a statement Tuesday from Live Nation, the concert promoter handling shows at KeyBank Pavilion.

The statement did not say how fans will be notified of their refund. Live Nation has encouraged fans to reach out to Ticketmaster Fan Support at 1-800-653-8000 in the past.

Long lines stretched from the venue’s gates as the show started Saturday evening. Many fans reported waiting outside for hours and not getting inside until the show was nearly over.

Buffett’s fans, known as Parrot Heads, have demanded refunds. The concert cash can be used for other shows at KeyBank Pavilion or at any other Live Nation venue in the country. Ticket prices ranged from $50 for a lawn seat to $150 for reserved seating.

Live Nation has been absolutely silent on what caused the long lines outside the venue or what the company is doing to ensure it does not happen again. The company issued an apology Sunday and pledged to work hard to prevet it from happening again.
