Doesn't he every year? We've been there a number of times in October when Jimmy has played the MGM arena. Always makes for a big crowd and expensive weekend rates at MGM.

I saw Buffett in Vegas a few years ago, awesome show! I wonder what time the tickets go on sale and the face value? The link from Margaritaville website takes you to Ticketmaster, which isn't updated yet to show the date.

"Didn't the guy save his money?"

Buffett is a gazillionaire. Not as rich as that other Buffett, but still rich.

He is always a top concert draw, year after year. So he should stop playing concerts, even though he has no problem selling tickets? (If there is an age limit for when rock stars are supposed to retire, nobody told Mick Jagger or Paul McCartney.) He also employs thousands of people with his many businesses, and I'm sure they are all very happy to be gainfully employed and happy he keeps going as long as he can.

I want him to finish his casino in MS soon. It's been stalled lately b/c of the recession, but I will enjoy gambling in his casino when it's built.

Thanks for the info. Saw him at MGM last year when he played in May. Enjoy seeing him in Vegas and pretty much anywhere, but much prefer to see him when he plays outdoors. I think he will continue to play until he does not enjoy it anymore. He jumped up on a stage during a tailgate party in New Orleans before the NFC championship game and played a few songs. How many artist as big as him would do that if they still didn't enjoy performing and it's not only time he has just randomly played.

By the way, was able to get a great rate at TI last year on the weekend he played so good deals should still be found at other hotels.

Fins Up!!!

I must confess, but this announcement has encouraged DH and I to start planning another trip. :) We were bummed that he isn't making it to Charlotte this year, so we will have to take the party to Jimmy in Vegas. Fins up!
