Parrotheads rejoice! Summer touring favorite Jimmy Buffett and his Coral Reefer Band will be bringing “Margaritaville,” “Cheeseburger in Paradise,” “Come Monday,” and a slew of other hits to amphitheaters when the singer/songwriter launches “The Year of Still Here” 2008 tour, on April 21 at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, just outside Houston, TX. Dates are confirmed through Oct. 21. All ticket prices include a $1.00 donation to Singing for Change Charitable Foundation, Inc.
