Many of you have been eagerly awaiting a date for the Dallas area, and you’ll be happy to hear Jimmy Buffett is returning to Toyota Stadium (formerly FC Dallas Stadium and Pizza Hut Park) this June. Buffettt will have an open act this year: John Fogerty.
Saturday, June 21st
from The Dallas Morning News:
First Jimmy Buffett announced a concert in Austin. Houston next. Then no more Texas show announcements for about three weeks. I thought the Parrotheads in North Texas might pack up and move to Finland.
But no, the surfer-singer is officially headed to Frisco again this year, home of what’s considered one of the best tailgates each year on the Jimmy Buffett tour. The show is June 21 at Toyota Stadium (formerly FC Dallas Stadium, formerly Pizza Hut Park.)
John Fogerty is the opening act.
This year marks the second in a row for a Frisco-based concert, as the Coral Reefer Band took a detour to Dallas in 2012. That didn’t work out so well, according to most Parrotheads we interviewed, and by 2013 the show had returned to Frisco.
If the 2014 concert in Frisco mirrors past events, expect a weekend-long RV parking lot party, where concertgoers in board shorts and grass skirts flip and flop in land-locked Frisco. There’ll be margaritas, flying Jell-O shots and searches for that lost shaker of salt.
