Jimmy Buffett Alpine Valley 2014 | Kiss With Def Leppard 2014 Tour

Jimmy Buffett tickets
The great Jimmy Buffett will again grace the stage of Elkhorn's Alpine Valley Music Theater this summer. Joining forces with the Coral Reefer Band on his 2014 “This One's For You” tour, the timeless performer will return to the venue for the fourth time in as many years on August 23rd. His annual shows at Alpine Valley have become one of the theater's most popular concerts of the summer, always selling-out fast.

The 67 year old Buffett has been playing his own unique blend of southern folk and country since the early 1970s. Born in Mississippi, he eventually moved to the beaches of Florida, where he found the easy-going tropical lifestyle to his liking. Buffett's Caribbean surroundings soon entered his music, a career that had already seen him release six full-length albums, none to critical acclaim. It wouldn't be until the release of his seventh studio album, Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes, which featured his first hit “Margaritaville”, which Buffett would really come onto the American folk scene.

Since that release in 1977, Buffett has expanded his discography to over 25 albums and has gone on tour every year. Eight of his biggest hits, including “Margaritaville”, are now expected to make up a good portion of his live shows, routinely referred to as Jimmy Buffet's Big Eight.

Beyond music, Buffet has delved his talents into an array of outside businesses ventures. Restaurants, casinos, beer, board games, sports, and even a number of clothing lines are either owned by Buffet or bear some form his brand. Even the former Madison-based minor league baseball team the Black Wolfs had ties to Buffet, partly-owned by him along with the Fort Meyers Miracle.

Buffet has also forayed into other art forms over the years. He has written three New York Times best sellers since beginning to author in the 1980s, writing both fiction and non-fiction, and even releasing a pair of children's books. He has been featured as a cameo in numerous television and film projects, including South Park, Sesame Street, and Hawaii 5-0.

Buffett is the second announced concert at Alpine Valley Music Theater for the 2014 summer season. KISS and Def Leppard will open the venue on August 15th.
