On June 19, Fort Worth will be, for an evening, the center of the Parrothead universe.
From the Star-Telegraph: Jimmy Buffett and his Coral Reefer Band will perform an intimate show at Coyote Drive-In as the inaugural musician in the “Live at the Drive-In” series, an idea conceived and produced by Coyote Drive-In owner-operators Brady Wood and Brandt Wood via their company, Woodhouse, in conjunction with Austin-based juggernaut C3 Presents.
“There is not another artist we’d rather be working with,” Brandt Wood says. “Jimmy has taken a personal interest — he grew up at drive-ins.”
What Wood described as “a big film crew” will be on hand during Buffett’s performance, which will be broadcast live, via DirecTV, to every participating, digitally-equipped drive-in across the country.
The concert will be a regular, full performance, according to Wood, who says this concept, which Woodhouse has been working on for the last year, is the biggest of its kind that’s ever been attempted.
Tickets for the Coyote Drive-In concert go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday via Buffett’s website or the Coyote Drive-In box office.
Ticket prices for Fort Worth were not made available Tuesday, although a Woodhouse spokesperson did say tickets would be $18 at other drive-ins nationwide. (Prices for the Fort Worth show will obviously be higher, sources said, given that it’s the site of the actual concert.) The list of the participating national drive-ins will be announced Friday.
