Buffett performs at Coyote Drive-in

Jimmy Buffett performed at the Coyote Drive-in in Ft. Worth, Texas on Thursday night, and the show was simulcast at 87 drive-ins around the country. The set list from the show is now available.

From The Akron Beacon Journal: “Buffett fans rock out in drive-ins”

Singer/songwriter/master marketer Jimmy Buffett has built a near half-billion dollar empire selling a philosophy and lifestyle primarily to boomers and increasingly their kids.

For 30-plus years, the 67-year-old and his Coral Reefer Band have toured the country with fans in tow, transforming America’s amphitheater parking lots into temporary Margaritavilles, named for his most famous — and his only for most non-Parrotheads — hit song.

But on Thursday night, Buffett, whose entire life resembles a really long, awesome dream, got to live out yet another dream. He performed a concert at the Coyote Drive-in in Panther Island, Ft. Worth, Texas and at the same time on screens at 87 drive-ins around the country, using a complicated technological process he described during the show as being beamed “from Ft. Worth to space and beyond.”
