Starting to get the itch to know the dates. Need to start planning my time off for 2016.

Anyone heard rumors on dates for 201. Really need to know when the Tampa show will be!!!

Me too! May wind up going to this. A buddy just moved down there recently.

I hear the music from Jeopardy playing in the background!

Just giving a little bump.

Last year tickets went on sale on 1/9, hoping we Floridians get a few shows.

New dates coming out... any chance of some March dates on the back end of the Workin' & Playin' Tour? Or, are we being skipped altogether and going straight into the I Don't Know Tour?

I'm nervous that he won't be here until November or December at this point.

Has anyone out there heard any rumours, official or unofficial? I can't be the only one waiting for some Buffett news!

Looks like late March or Early April with the April 16th date in Virginia. Already stocking up on shrimp and gumbo makings!

Sadly, I think Jimmy and the crew might be skipping us Floridians this go around, unless he goes out of the norm and has a late May date the week before Frisco to kick off the tour. My next show is # 75, so might have to look at visiting some of our old phlock in the northeast this year.

I doubt if it'll be in April. In recent years the tour dates have been, with only a few exceptions, Saturday-Tuesday-Thursday-Saturday, then a few weeks off until the next leg of the tour. There are already 4 April dates announced so I think the next shows announced will be to fill out the May leg.
what I really mean . . . I wish you were here

In recent years Buffett has played in Tampa 4 out of the past 5 years, all 4 of them on Saturday, all 4 of them in April. :pirate:

Regardless, I would not be upset with a Thur March 31st date this year, since I was planning on being in the area on Friday the 1st anyway. :lol:

last November date was 2008 , a fundraiser for Obama , he also did 2 shows in 2007. I'm guessing from what I'm hearing listening to Sirius , there won't be a Florida leg of the Workin & Playin tour , once the April Leg is over , he's taking a month off to rest and rehearse for the start of the new tour. Sounds like a Texas Start.

I sure do hope that he doesn't skip Florida! I truly look forward to JB concert season just about more than any other season. I am going to road trip it to the two NC concerts just in case we do get skipped. But, we can always hope for a change up this year and maybe get a May or November date. It's hard to imagine him skipping Florida entirely. Phingers crossed!! :wink:
