Confirmed: Jimmy Buffett to play Comerica Park in Detroit

May 4th, 2012

The rumor panned out. Jimmy Buffett will make his annual trek to Detroit this year but instead of playing Pine Knob, he’ll take the Lounging at the Lagoon Tour to Comerica Park.

Detroit, MI
Saturday, July 28th
Comerica Park

Tickets go on sale Saturday, May 12th at 10 am via www.Tickets.com, the Comerica Park box office and charge-by-phone (866-668-4437). Prices will be announced in coming days.

Buffett’s DTE shows have typically sold out within minutes. Capacity will be about 40,000 for the Comerica Park date, said Olympia Entertainment president and CEO Tom Wilson.

Buffett, 65, has played only a handful of stadium shows during a four-decade touring career.

“He’s always been capable of doing a show of this magnitude. It was just a question of him getting comfortable with it,” Wilson said. “He started playing stadiums in the recent past, and part of the reason you start doing that is because there’s this incredible demand.”

A daylong “Buffett’s Beach Party” will be held on the grounds outside Comerica Park, where a lounge, margarita tastings, midway games and other frills will be in place for the legion of partying Parrothead fans.
