PHOENIX — Margaritaville will once again serve up its home in Phoenix for one night next year.

Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band will perform March 9 at Footprint Center in downtown Phoenix as part of the Life on the Flip Side Redux Tour.

Tickets for the show go on sale Dec. 2 to the general public.

The show will continue a long tradition of Parrotheads — the fan base of Buffett — having the opportunity to see the trop rock singer in metro Phoenix.

Buffett has performed in the Valley 10 times since the turn of the century, according to setlist.fm. The most recent concert happened in 2018 at Footprint Center, when the venue was called Talking Stick Resort Arena.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band back to Footprint Center,” Ralph Marchetta, general manager of the venue, said in a press release.

“We can’t wait to welcome the parrot heads back to downtown Phoenix for what will be the party of the year.”

Buffett is a two-time Grammy Award nominee and is best known for his hit songs “Margaritaville” and “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere.”
