Jimmy Buffett partied with a sold out crowd of spirited Parrotheads Tuesday, May 27, 2014 at Chastain Park Amphitheatre in Atlanta. This was a rare smaller venue show for Buffett, who regularly sells out Aaron's Amphiteatre at Lakewood, with nearly three times the capacity as Chastain Park.
He flunked out at Auburn University. “Buffett was unable to balance his newfound interests in music and girls with his college classes and failed out of Auburn in April 1966,” Charles Stephen Padgett wrote on EncylopediaofAlabama.org.
Buffett, who grew up in Mississippi and Alabama, was a New Orleans Saints fan. He joined the Saints for postgame celebration after winning Super Bowl in 2010.
His “Big 8: songs: Margaritaville, Come Monday, Fins, Volcano, A Pirate Looks at Forty, Cheeseburger in Paradise ‚Why Don’t We Get Drunk and Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes
Buffett’s star began to take off after he recorded “You had to be there,” a live album taped at the Fox Theatre in 1978 and in Miami. “Thank you Atlanta,” Buffett said at a 2009 concert at Lakewood Amphitheatre, “you were here long before many others.”
Buffett proved to be a shrewd manager of his considerable fortune; in 2023, Forbes estimated his net worth at $1 billion.
