My birthday is on Halloween. We missed last year in Vegas for the first time in about 12 years. Hope to be back this year.

I'll be going to the Vegas show! First time seeing him in Vegas. I will turn 40 just a few days before. It's a birthday gift from my husband. Any idea about pre parties and best place to stay?

If it's anything like years past the pre party will be at the Flamingo POol area, roughly 10am-6pm. Free, open to the public, food and drink available inside. Most people who post here prefer to stay at the Flamingo however we much prefer the MGM so we are close to the room when the show ends and it has a nice sports book.

Vegas is a great venue to see Jimmy. Margaritaville is hopping that weekend and the pool party at the Flamingo is a blast. They have early entry for the pool party thru the Margaritaville Vegas website, you have to sign up before hand. If you don't get an early entry card, you need to line up early to have any chance of getting a seat anywhere. They have cabana and pool bed rentals which they announce on their Facebook page before the party. Been going to see Jimmy in Vegas regularly since 2012 and have enjoyed them all. We also stay at the MGM as its very convenient, and the tram takes you right to the Flamingo.

We're getting married at the outdoor gazebo at the Flamingo on the 18th and going to the concert on the 19th. My fiancée is looking for a suggestion on what to wear to the pool party that is a "bikini/bride/parrothead" look. Any suggestions?

Going to Vegas. First Vegas show for me. Staying at flamingo. Booked cabana. Part of a group from central Kansas parrotheads. Has anyone sat in sections 18-21 for a concert? Looking at buying tix there.

Sections 18 & 19 can be really good if you can get closer to the aisles where those sections meet sections 16 & 17, and will even likely be able to see the big screen behind Jimmy. Now if it's section 18/19 that are closer to the aisles near 20 & 21 (and sections 20 & 21 themselves), it'll be more of a side view, where you may not be able to see the video board and backdrop.

They just dropped some of the upper level tickets to $40 plus fees - https://www.axs.com/events/370601/jimmy-buffett-tickets

AXS (not Ticketmaster) is the official online "box office" for this concert.

They dropped the price of some other lower level seats to $70. I snagged a single ticket in section 14 right by the stage for $87 after fees a few days ago. A seat 5 rows below that is $212!!! Strangely, tickets in the upper level directly across from there are $107. I can't figure out that pricing logic.

I've seen Buffett in Vegas every year since 2011, the streak is coming to an end. I'll have to get my Vegas fix some other time.

No, I'm going to see Chris Stapleton at the North Charleston Coliseum on the 17th and I didn't want to have to rush to get to the airport the next day.
