Articles preview Cincinnati Show

July 14th, 2008

Cincinnati.com has a couple of articles on Buffett in advance of Thursday’s show at Riverport Amphitheater:

Jimmy Buffett brings his “The Year of Still Here” tour to Riverbend Thursday, representing the 20th anniversary of his first performance at the venue in 1988. This show is his 41st consecutive sell-out at Riverbend. This one sold all of the 20,000 tickets in 10 minutes. Make it his 47th consecutive sell-out in this market, if you count the six shows he did at Kings Island from 1984-87.

By a conservative estimate, Buffett has likely grossed $25 million in this market during the span.


Cincinnati fans played no small role in giving Buffett the impetus to launch Margaritaville Inc., providing him with his Parrothead branding statement as the moniker was first uttered at a Kings Island concert in 1985. Cincinnati fans were the first to come out of the cult closet and dress up in wild beach gear.

Buffett has turned his musical fantasies into what is estimated to be a $400 million brand, making him one of the richest musicians in the world. Rolling Stone magazine estimated in 2006 Buffett was the seventh richest rock star, earning $44 million that year.
