Major buzzkill on a monday morning!! I'm excited JB has blessed us with another Dallas area show...... just wish it was back at Frisco :( And a thursday night as well!!!! I have been to the Cotton Bowl, but not the Pavilion, so I have no idea what the parking, tailgating or seating will be like.
If anyone has any info on RV parking or seating, please let me know...
JB, Kenny C and ZBB!!! The Father, the son and a summer of fun!!!

Now, that would be FUN!!!
Well, for me [smilie=beadygrinner.gif]

IF he comes back to the Woodlands Pavillion with very little tailgating, it can't be a mini-Frisco.
But the BNers that showed up last year had a good afternoon :D

Last I had heard, and as many others are saying on the Mville thread, no RVs are allowed at this venue.

There were some at Hoot Island, but I'm sure they could have changed the rules by now.

Buffett and his Coral Reefer Band are traveling on their Welcome to Fin Land Tour. Tickets for the Dallas show go on sale at 10 a.m. February 18.

We've put calls into Pizza Hut Park, LiveNation, and Jimmy Buffett's camp to find out why the venue changed. We'll update you when we know more.

UPDATE: Buffett and his band used to play at what's now Gexa Energy Pavilion (formerly Starplex) in the '80s and most of the '90s, said Mike Tabor, general manager at Gexa Energy Pavilion. "We're excited to have them back," he said.

The venue change isn't necessarily permanent; Tabor says future shows at Gexa will be negotiated after the concert.

Like in Frisco, RVs will be allowed in the parking lot for a fee. Lots will open at noon on Thursday and Tabor does not know if vehicles will be allowed overnight.

Sadly there was no way (financially) I was gonna make it back to Frisco for FFF6. This takes a little of the sting away, since it won't be FFF6.

Thanks for posting the link to the story about Jimmy Buffett's show in Dallas. I'm Sarah, the journalist who's trying to hunt down more info for you guys. I just learned that RVs will be allowed but that they don't know whether they'll allow RVs to stay overnight. Here's the story with updates: http://www.pegasusnews.com/news/2012/fe ... -april-19/. Please make comments or pass it around to other Parrotheads.

The people at Gexa expect a good turnout despite the Thursday date. Agree?

If they won't allow RV's to stay overnight and they don't allow tailgating, then it will be a VERY different party this year. I wonder if it will be worth coming all the way down to Dallas.

I'm sure the turnout will be fine. It's more about the disappointment on the tailgating scenerio, and on a thursday!? In one of the largest cities in the U.S. really?

We are typically at PHP by 8 in the morning if not sooner. I'm catching my second wind by noon, and at this place that's when the gates will open. It's just disappointing. Frisco has always been one of his largest concerts, and by far the best tailgating.
