No FRISCO TEXAS concert this year?

Post by DallasWizard » December 11, 2017 2:15 pm

Sources locally have informed me that there will be no Jimmy Buffett concert this year at Toyota Stadium. This has been an annual event in the Dallas area for years. Can someone confirm & comment please?

He played Frisco in June, on my calendar that was this year.

What about Houston?

If it is any consolation, Jack Johnson is coming to Houston, Austin, and Irving this year.

Jimmy has 2 shows with the Eagles one on June 28 2018 in Denver and the other in Minneapolis on June 30 2018 which is around the same time he usually hits Texas each year so if there are no 2018 Texas shows the touring w/ the eagles might be the reason

And sometimes he swings through Texas as early as late April. A "pre-Jazz Fest" tour, he calls it. So, I think the fact that he isn't playing with the Eagles in Texas (the Eagles shows here have already been announced) bodes well.

FWIW, I got Jack Johnson tickets for the Woodlands yesterday. The general sale for all three Texas shows starts tomorrow. If Jimmy doesn't come to Texas this year, this is a darn good substitute.

Here you go. FC Dallas just released their schedule.

Let the speculation begin.

Based on the calendar, if it is going to happen, it would most likely be June 16th. Open weekend on the schedule. I booked the Field House Hampton. Can always cancel if this really is the year of no Frisco. My sources are very quiet and non committal. I retire on June 4th, and this would be a great start to the next phase in chasing Jimmy. Have ticket to the June 28th Denver Eagles/Jimmy show.

I haven't found out anything...yet.

However the dates are getting limited (if it happens), it likely has to be one of the dates below:
- April 28th -probably to early
- May 5th
- May 26th
- June 16th
- June 23

All other dates (within those months) are current JB concerts or activities at the Frisco stadium.

I'm curious because a date at The Woodlands generally occurs either the Thursday before or the Tuesday afterwards.

Just FYI to you Dallas people, Jimmy can sell out Houston on a weeknight. Maybe it's our turn to get a Saturday show.

Looks like as of right now, he will skip Texas this year. I'm still holding out hope that he changes his mind. My source has confirmed this also.

:( I am afraid Parrothead69 may be right...doesn't look good for his coming to Frisco this year.

It would be a bummer if Jimmy doesn't come through Texas this year, but he is 71 and he is going to slow the touring down sooner rather than later. At some point he is going to quit the big tours all together. It's been a great run, and I think we are beginning to see the slower pace and less frequent visits.

When was the last year that Jimmy did not play in Dallas/Frisco? This would be the end of a long streak, right?

Looks like it was in 2005, he didn't do any shows in Texas that year. He also played at Great Woods on a Monday and Wednesday in 2005 so it was a weird year all around.
