No need to fly to “Saint Somewhere,” Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band are bringing Margaritaville to you.
The music legend will be in central Arkansas for a one-night-only performance at Verizon Arena, in North Little Rock, on Thursday June 6th. The doors will open at 6:30 pm, and the concert is scheduled to start at 8 pm – leaving plenty of time to find your “five-o-clock” to prepare for the event.
The concert is part of Buffett’s “Son Of A Son Of A Sailor” tour, named for the 40th anniversary of his 1978 LP with the same name.
There is a massive tailgating party being coordinated on Riverfront Drive, in North Little Rock, on the day of the event. The entirety of Riverfront will be blocked off from Willow to Cypress from Wednesday morning to Friday afternoon for the quasi-block party. Tailgaters will be allowed to enter this designated zone as early as 8 am on Thursday.
Tailgating spots can be purchased for $50, and will be made available on a first come, first serve basis. Anyone who is simply attending the festivities may park elsewhere and enter free of charge. The official party will start at 11 am, and will feature live music, drinks, food trucks, and more.
If you have a “Caribbean soul you can barely control,” then make plans to be in North Little Rock on Thursday, June 6.
