Four years after his last appearance in Honolulu, Jimmy Buffett is returning with his Coral Reefer Band for a Nov. 4 concert at the Waikiki Shell as part of his I Don’t Know Tour 2017.
Tickets — $89.50 and $136.50 for reserved seats and $39.50 for lawn seating — go on sale at 9 a.m. June 9, with an eight-ticket limit per customer. Tickets will be available at Ticketmaster.com, via charge by phone at 800-745-3000, at the Blaisdell box office and at all Ticketmaster outlets.
Buffett is best known for his hit “Margaritaville” off the 40-year-old album “Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes” and for songs praising the laid-back, beachy lifestyle. “Changes” is one of the singer’s nine platinum-selling albums. “Margaritaville” was inducted into the 2016 Grammy Hall of Fame.
Buffett will perform acoustic versions of his hits at the concert, according to promoter Barb Saito of Aloha Group International. Along with lead promoter Goldenvoice, Aloha Group is presenting the concert.
Hawaii ukulele virtuoso Jake Shimabukuro will open.
Buffett last performed at the Waikiki Shell in December 2013, in a show presented by Tom Moffatt Productions. Saito, who worked with the famed promoter and radio host for 35 years and served as vice president of Tom Moffatt Productions until Moffatt’s death last year, is now promoting events under her own banner.
“I hope to do it with the same aloha and respect for the audience,” Saito said.
