DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Music legend Jimmy Buffett is set to perform live in Delray Beach for four nights in May. The event will take place with COVID protocols in place. It’s outside. Tickets are being sold in four-seat “pods.” Each pod is at least six feet away from the next, according to a spokesperson connected to the event.
The concerts will take place at Old School Square, already recognized for strict — yet reasonable — COVID compliance.
“Old School Square has been progressive in its approach,” said Carli Brinkman, a spokesperson for the event. “When you purchase a ticket, you are actually purchasing a pod for four people. All payment onsite is touchless. Sanitization is constant.”
Tickets, which go on sale at 10 a.m. on April 26th, will run from $400 to over $2000. Again, each ticket is actually for four seats in a private pod. 222 pods are available, for a total of 888 people.
Here is the official advisory from Old School Square:
“Jimmy Buffett with Coral Reefer Friends will perform at Old School Square in Delray Beach for four nights in May, Thursday, May 13, Friday, May 14, Monday, May 17, and Tuesday, May 18- all at 8 pm. Parrot Heads near and far won’t want to miss their chance to soak in an intimate Jimmy Buffett experience.
“We are honored to host a music icon as beloved as Jimmy Buffett, whose songs also perfectly depict the island vibe lifestyle we offer here in Delray,” said Old School Square chief operating officer Holland Ryan. “We’re incredibly humbled that Jimmy and his team selected our safe, secure, open- air venue to bring back his live performances, and we look forward to these special nights with Jimmy’s classics and best-known gems under the stars”.
Jimmy recently released an album, “Song’s You Don’t Know By Heart”, which Parrot Heads had a hand in, after the question posted on social media, “What little-known Jimmy Buffett songs would you like him to revisit?” prompted tens of thousands of replies. Once the votes were tallied, Jimmy and his daughter and filmmaker, Delaney Buffett, began shooting a new video of the top-mentioned songs every week for his website. There are currently over four million views for the series and the acoustic album, “Songs You Don’t Know By Heart”, is a curation of fans’ top responses.
This release comes on the heel of his very successful record (#2 debut), “Life On The Flip
Side”, his first studio album in seven years. Not being on tour has resulted in a very prolific time for Jimmy.”
