Hold on to your Margaritas, ‘cause American icon Jimmy Buffet is coming to the Klipsch Music Center on Thursday, June 25. This 66-year old “Son of a Son of a Sailor” will wash ashore in Indianapolis as part of his “Songs from St. Somewhere Tour,” which officially kicked off this spring in Nashville, Tennessee and will hit 25 cities across the U.S.
Jamaican reggae band formed, Third World, will open the show.
The Tour’s name was inspired by Jimmy’s upcoming album, Songs from St. Somewhere, which includes tracks like “Something ‘Bout a Boat,” “Too Drunk to Karaoke,” “Useless and Important Information,” and “Oldest Surfer on the Beach.”
Rumor has it that Jimmy Buffett’s Songs from St. Somewhere album will be released sometime in mid-to-late August, 2013, at least this is according to the Facebook page of guitarist/musician Mark Knopfler.
The title “St. Somewhere” is taken from the song “Boat Drinks,” where he sings “I’ve gotta fly to St. Somewhere.”
Buffet, who is an author and businessman when he’s not wasting away in Margaritaville, has never been shy about professing his fondness of the “island escapism” lifestyle and the countless humorous experiences he has accumulated throughout his life. It’s an attitude that really comes through in songs like “Come Monday,” “Cheeseburger in Paradise” and “Changes in Latitudes.”
He has amassed 8 gold albums, 9 nine are Platinum/Multi Platinum albums throughout his illustrious career, which includes over 30 albums released since the start of his touring career in 1965.
