Ok, yes I admit it. I'm a Parrothead at heart. It reminds me of my youth back in Florida. So if you enjoy drinking pina coladas and getting caught in the rain -- oh wait -- if you enjoy cheeseburgers in paradise, margaritas and brown eyed girls, then you're guaranteed to have a good time. You don't have to know all of the songs, but island/beach attire is a must.
This year Jimmy Buffett will be playing at Nissan Pavilian -- err, Lube Live (gross, I know). Jiffy Lube Live has had a lot of changes regarding their tailgating policies. Last year, they banned tailgating all together, but after a strong backlash in the Parrothead community (and fans of other musical artists), they reverted back to allowing tailgating. There are still some gray areas, but I'm sure it will be loads better than last year.
We'll be there right when the gates open (If you've come to previous meetups, that means we're aiming for an hour BEFORE they open! we promise.) as the parking is first come first serve and we want to make sure we have a good area for everyone. We'll bring the food and some drinks (water, of course ;-) ) but unfortunately we don't have a grill, so if someone would like to volunteer, it would be much appreciated.
Show Start: 8:00pm
Gates open: 6:00pm (according to the policies, but they also say this will vary for "some concerts", so I'm sure this time will be moved to an earlier time).
Tickets: $46.50 for lawn chairs (who needs hundred dollar seats when you can bring your own for free!)
Buy your tickets early since they sell out quick, or alternatively, you can buy tickets there as there are always people out to sell their extras. You can buy tickets at the Live Nation website.
