Montana Courting Buffett for Next Year

June 11th, 2009

A non-profit group in Montana is trying to bring Jimmy Buffett to Red Lodge near Yellowstone for a benefit concert next year:

A non-profit group for kid’s health is looking to bring Mr. Margaritaville himself to the Yellowstone Valley for a benefit concert.

Youth Dynamic has a major promoter that is working with Jimmy Buffett’s booking agent to secure a contract for a July 2010 concert in Red Lodge. They have raised $500,000 dollars for a down payment.

Organizers said they should know by the end of July if the concert will happen and tickets will go on sale shortly thereafter. Buffett has not performed in Montana since the ’70’s.


The concert would be held at a private ranch outside of Red Lodge. Youth Dynamics hopes to raise $1-million from the Buffett concert to support uninsured children with mental illness. Organizers say they do have a plan B in order should the Buffett contract not come through.
