Thousands braved bitter cold and slick roads to party in downtown Tulsa on Thursday. Buffett fans, known as Parrotheads, are famous for their devotion to the singer and turned out in big numbers for Buffett’s first show at the BOK Center.

“Hello, sunny Tulsa,” a barefoot Buffett exclaimed as his Coral Reefer band started playing “St. Somewhere” off Buffett’s newest album, “Songs From St. Somewhere.”

Buffett made it clear that this party was going on no matter what.

“This storm will pass and we’ll just have to wait it out here,” Buffett said, a plan many in the crowd were OK with. “You didn’t think I wasn’t coming, did you? I’ve been waiting for this for a long time.”

Buffett is part of the fifth anniversary concert series at the BOK Center, celebrating five years since it opened its doors. BOK Center officials said that since before the doors even opened, they had been trying to get Buffett to town.
