Jimmy Buffett performed last night before the game between the Miami Dolphins and the Indianapolis Colts.

Rapper T-Pain popped out of a hearse and strode onto a VIP carpet to the sounds of screaming fans. A few feet away, Jimmy Buffett hoisted a beer on stage.
And Buffett, whose beer label acquired the stadium’s naming rights in May, was the main attraction. He performed some of his greatest hits before thousands at the Fin Zone bar area at the stadium’s Grand Plaza.
The stargazing continued inside the stadium, where celebrities watched players warm up on the sidelines. Serena and Venus Williams, who also own a small share of the team, appeared on-field with legendary Dolphins quarterbacks Dan Marino and Bob Griese.
Buffett’s appearance motivated some fans to come to the game more for the entertainment than the football.
“Oh, my God, it’s fantastic,” said Brenda Braley, president of the Miami Parrot Heads chapter, who helped sell more than 600 tickets to Monday’s game to other Buffett fans. “We’re just hungry for a show.”
