From the San Diego Union Tribune: “Jimmy Buffett sets San Diego return with October Mattress Firm Amphitheatre show”
Jimmy Buffett is returning to San Diego for his second area concert of the year.
After opening his “I Don’t Know” 2017 tour with a March 28 show at the Belly Up, the tropical troubadour and his Coral Reefer Band are headed back for an Oct. 21 date at Mattress Firm Amphitheatre in Chula Vista. Ticket information appears below.
This will mark Buffett’s fourth concert here in barely a year. Last September, he headlined the second night of the three-day KAABOO Del Mar festival, where he drew a crowd estimated at around 25,000. Buffett returned in October to perform his first show at Humphreys Concerts by the Bay since 1984. It sold out in a matter of minutes.
On Tuesday, Buffett’s Broadway-bound “Escape to Margaritaville — The Musical” will begin preview performances at La Jolla Playhouse as part of its world premiere here.
Tickets for Buffett and his band’s Oct. 21 show at Mattress Firm Amphitheatre are priced at $36-$136 each, plus service charges. The nearly 20,000-capacity venue was previously known, in order, as Coors Amphitheatre, Cricket Wireless Amphitheatre and Sleep Train Amphitheatre.
