Buffett Reportedly Returning to Frisco, TX This Year

January 8th, 2013

After several years performing at Pizza Hut Park (now FC Dallas Stadium), Jimmy Buffett moved to the Gexa Energy Pavilion in Dallas last year but he’ll reportedly return to the Frisco, TX soccer stadium in 2013.

In an article discussing the economic impact of college football in Frisco, the comparison is made to Jimmy Buffett concerts:

When it comes to spending money here, North Dakota State University football fans have nothing on Parrotheads.

Saturday’s Division I Football Championship title game attracted a sold-out crowd of 21,411 to the FC Dallas Stadium, more than 60 percent of them Bison fans.

Frisco leaders believe the game and surrounding activities had a $5.9 million economic impact on the region, matching what was generated last year.

Yet in terms of economic impact, the title game comes in second.

A Jimmy Buffett concert is No. 1 for Frisco.

At the end of the article, it’s reported that he’ll return:

Jimmy Buffett hosted an annual concert in Frisco for several years before moving to Dallas in 2012. The concert will return to Frisco this year.
