Re: Sacramento March 16, 2019

There is a pre-party at the Embassy Suites Riverfront in Sacramento. The party is open to the public. It starts at 4:00 pm and goes until 7:00 pm. Looks like that might be the place to be. Garratt Wilkin & the Parroheads will be playing. The information is on Facebook. Fins up!

Sacramento March 16, 2019

Are there any pre-parties in Sacramento on Saturday before the show?

Re: SoCal Concert at Honda Center

Thanks for the information. After all of the years, I was told it was Buffett and I just assumed it was Buffett. No wonder Buffett never made reference to it. Those are the consequences of not checking the facts. Thank you. Time to change the artist on my iPod and give the other artist credit.

Re: SoCal Concert at Honda Center

I have been to the Honda Center for two shows. Both times, the Anaheim PD allowed tailgating. Needless to say, compared to Irvine in the late 90s and early 2000s, many of us were fearful that our reckless/orderly/composed tailgate parties were not going to be allowed in Anaheim. Similar to the early...

Re: Las Vegas 10-20-18

Looking for two tickets or more tickets for the show. I planned on going back in May, but I had to cancel all the plans due to work. However, now the Fin City show is back on for me. Like many of us from the Southern California area, I kept waiting for the SoCal show announcement. Well, it never hap...

Re: SoCal 2018

I have a feeling he will play San Diego on October 27. Sleep Train is a great place for the show. Nothing against the Hollywood Bowl, but LA traffic sucks and there is hardly any tailgating there.

Re: West Coast dates

In prior years, Buffett has "avoided" the great Los Angeles years. Your best bet might be San Diego or hopefully, Vegas in October. Buffett has not played Glen Hellen since the 90s, so now that Irvine is no longer option, that only leave the Hollywood Bowl as a viable outdoor option. I have a feelin...

Re: West Coast dates

Is the Pacific Amphitheater still open / viable. I don't remember too much about it as a venue but I saw him there in the late 80s. The Pacific Amphitheater is only used during the Orange County fair for concerts, which runs from July thru August. Nothing against LA and the Hollywood Bowl, but for ...

Re: West Coast dates

Traditionally, Buffett comes through California in October. My guess is that he will do the same this year. He played the Belly Up, however, that was for a few fortunate fans. The quick West Coast in early April probably had more to do with the Margaritaville opening in Studio City and the promotion...

Buffett has continued the same tour into the following calendar year before. I will definitely be there in April. However, I hope he returns to Vegas in October. I am planning my 50th birthday party with the intention that he will be there. Oh well, I guess we can somehow manage a little fun in Fin ...

Re: Irvine Ca

Last year, we arrived at about 6 o'clock. It still took about an hour to get in. The venue wants to avoid the issues with pre-party crowd, however, it creates a traffic nightmare. You should be ok if you get there about 6. We plan on getting to the venue around 6 as well.

Re: 10-15-16, Las Vegas

The MGM always releases tickets the day of the show. Last year, I was able to purchase six tickets together. More importantly, I did not have to pay the service fee that Ticketmaster charges. Finally, there are always tickets being sold around the arena.

Re: Irvine Ca

For the last three decades, Irvine has had a love/hate relationship with Parrot Heads. One year, the riot police stormed the parking lot and did their best to "stop" the tail gate party. Not surprisingly, Buffett avoided playing Irvine for a few years. Last year, the parking lot did open until 4:00 ...

Re: Vegas 2016

Any Saturday in October is great for me, however, I must say that I would prefer the last weekend in October because of the Halloween weekend. The Hard Rock has the the Fetish and Fantasy Ball, not that I indulge in it, but the party there is out of this world. Hopefully, we get two weekend shows th...

Finz up! I was hoping for a Halloween Buffett show, however, Ocotober 17 will do. The thought of not seeing Buffett in Sharktober was really bumming me out. Viva Las Vegas!

Re: Introduce yourself to the rest of the phlok.

After my first JB show at Irvine Meadows (California) in 1992, I became a Parrothead. I will honestly admit that the only reason I went to the concert was to listen to "Margaritaville" and "Come Monday," which were the only JB songs I knew. Strangely, I still remember the radio commerical announceme...

Re: Thanks Jimmy, for trying the drive-in thing :-)

We had a great time in SoCal (Montclair). The best part of the experience was taking our 11 year old daughter to the drive-in. If not for the show, we probably would have never gone at of our way to take her to the drive-in. For many of us, a drive-in has become nothing more than nostalgia. Our driv...

Re: WEST COAST being snubbed….again

Living in SoCal, A part of me of me does miss the Irvine shows. However, if you recall, during the early 2000's, the Irvine pre-party was nothing compared to the 90s. One year, the riot police busted up the tailgate party. As a result, Buffett played at the Pond for a few years. When Buffett returne...

Re: Looks like no L.A. visit this tour

In 1992, I went to my first Buffett show at Irvine Meadows. Year after year, I saw the pre-party grow. I have to agree, that the Irvine parties were incredible. However, if you recall, in the early 2000s, the Irvine Riot Police started cracking down on the partying. The following year, Buffett did n...
