Musician Jimmy Buffett is best known for his hit songs “Margaritaville” and “Cheeseburger in Paradise,” as well as his annual summer tours. The amphitheatre and arena outings have become a trademark for the performer, who has also financed restaurant chains that share the names of his hit songs. Buffett began touring regularly with his 1976 A Pink Crustacean Tour, though he didn’t begin his annual touring tradition until the 1984 Feeding Frenzy Tour. His live performances are highly ritualistic, with standard songs appearing at approximately the same time from set to set. Buffett’s seasonal outings always rank highly in TicketNews’s exclusive weekly Events Rankings.
