“We have had the great fortune to bring Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band downtown at Comerica Park for the past three years. Through our partnership with the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy, we are thrilled to bring Jimmy back for a fourth summer to a new and exciting location, the West Riverfront Park,” said Tom Wilson, president and CEO of Olympia Entertainment. “This is a chance to see the ultimate summer concert as it takes anchor in a truly unique setting on the water with nothing but our amazing city skyline as the backdrop, grass under your feet and stars above.”
This year marks the 40th anniversary of the release of Jimmy’s A1A album, his first Top 40 record, which includes the hit, “A Pirate Looks At Forty”, a perennial concert favourite.
