Parrotheads Unite: Jimmy Buffett to Play Xfinity Center in Mansfield in August

Jimmy Buffett’s highly-anticipated 2019 Son of a Son of a Sailor Tour is going to splashdown upon sold-out audiences throughout North America. This includes a June 8 performance at Dos Equis Pavilion in Dallas, a Tuesday, July 16 performance at DTE Energy Music Theater in Detroit, and a Saturday, July 20 show at Alpine Valley in Wisconsin. Perhaps the biggest and most anticipated show will go down on Saturday, August 10 at the Xfinity Center in Mansfield, Massachusetts. Jimmy Buffett 2019 Tour Tickets are currently available to all three of these tour dates, and all others.

The last 50 Years

Buffett is no liar. He is indeed the son of a son of a sailor. He gained a lot of experience as a youth from his grandfather as he sailed the shores of the Gulf of Mexico for a variety of endeavors. It acquainted him with life on the water, a theme that he has visited regularly throughout his music career. Buffett has always been a straightforward and bold singer and songwriter, and he has penned party anthems that embrace the Parrothead lifestyle.

Buffett’s discography is impressive and extensive, paralleling if not exceeding the output of 99.9% of musicians over the course of this last 50 years. His first release came in 1970, and the album that the upcoming tour is named after dropped in 1978. 1999’s Beach House on the Moon and 2002’s Far Side of the World combined to create a gentle homage to the legendary album produced by Pink Floyd in the late 70s. Buffett has stayed busy in recent years, releasing ‘Tis the SeaSon in 2016 and further incorporating the sea and sailing lifestyle into his music.

A total of 30 studio albums have given the artist plenty of songs to choose from when comprising a set list, and Buffett’s extensive library has essentially allowed him to live on tour for the last several years. Along with his creative output in terms of studio albums, there are zero other performers on Earth who have actually been on tour every single year since 1976. Take a minute to let that sink in – although the concept of sinking isn’t something that sea people and sailors are very fond of. The shows on the upcoming tour are sure to create big waves in the rock industry, and all fans interested in attending one of the aforementioned can easily secure their Jimmy Buffett 2019 Tour Tickets now.

Xfinity Center

The Xfinity Center is located at 885 S. Main Street in Mansfield, Massachusetts. It is both owned and operated by Live Nation New England. It originally opened to the public back in 1986 at a frugal cost of just $30 million by today’s lofty inflation standards. It was known as the Great Woods Center for the Performing Arts for the first 14 years of its existence, and it went by two other names before it was rebranded into the foreseeable future by Xfinity. A renovation in 2000 expanded the capacity to its current 19,900.

By the mid-80s, the need for venues such as this in Mansfield was becoming more and more obvious, as bands looked for outdoor venues to stage concerts during tours up-and-down the great Eastern Seaboard. Many well-known bands have utilized the amphitheater several times, including Aerosmith, which has performed a total of 24 shows over the years. Jimmy Buffett & The Coral Reefer Band have also been regulars, and they actually recorded portions of live albums during performances in both 1999 and 2008. Depeche Mode, Phish, James Taylor and The Eagles have also performed a handful of times. Pearl Jam has played 11 times, highlighted by an epic July 11, 2003 show that was the longest Pearl Jam has ever been on stage during a live performance.
