From the Palm Beach Post: “Jimmy Buffett expected to perform outside stadium before Miami Dolphins game”
Come Monday, Colts will be invading Land Shark Stadium, and so will Parrotheads.
The Dolphins plan a series of festivities before their game against Indianapolis on Monday Night Football, including a “surprise artist” performing on the Land Shark Tailgate Stage near Gate F at 7:45 p.m., nearly an hour before the 8:40 kickoff.
Sources said the artist is Jimmy Buffett, whose breakthrough hit in 1974 was Come Monday and whose fans are known as Parrotheads. This summer, LandShark Lager, the beer Buffett promotes, attached its name to the former Dolphin Stadium. Buffett also rewrote the lyrics to his song Fins to accommodate the Dolphins, who plan to play it after some scores.
Buffett is a friend and Palm Beach neighbor of Dolphins owner Stephen M. Ross, who is attempting to enhance the “game-day experience” with an influx of starpower to premiere Monday. Marc Anthony, Gloria and Emilio Estefan and Venus and Serena Williams are new limited partners in the Dolphins.
