The Parrothead nation will descend this fall on the home of the Sacramento Kings. Jimmy Buffett, the easygoing singer-songwriter best known for his hit 1977 song “Margaritaville,” is scheduled to perform at downtown’s Golden 1 Center on Thursday, Oct. 20.
The concert is part of a month-long series of events designed to inaugurate the new arena, which is projected to open in October. The concerts lined up so far cover a wide swath of Sacramento demographics: a pop-rock show by Maroon 5 (Oct. 15); an appearance by Latin superstars Maná (Nov. 9); and now a baby-boomer-focused night with Buffett.
More concerts and events tied to the opening of Golden 1 Center are expected to be announced soon.
Pre-sale tickets for American Express Card Members can be purchased at 10 a.m. on Friday, March 25. Tickets for the general public go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, April 1. Note that customers are limited to eight tickets. Prices have not yet been announced.
