"Mishka first met Jimmy Buffett when he was an entrepreneurial five year-old delivering fresh croissants to Jimmy’s sailboat in the French West Indies. The musician and young Mishka formed a fast bond, and
Jimmy wrote and recorded a song about him called, “Chanson Pour Les Petis Enfants” which translates to, “Song For Little Children.”
Mishka will be performing in Nashville, Atlanta, and Texas through early May!"

Jimmy Buffett and The Coral Reefer Band concert postponed to Friday, May 3rd
AUSTIN, Texas (May 2, 2013) – Officials with Circuit of The Americas and Live Nation just announced that the Jimmy Buffett “Songs From St. Somewhere” Tour, scheduled to stop in Austin at the Circuit’s Austin360
Amphitheater tonight, May 2, has been postponed by 24 hours until tomorrow Friday, May 3, at 7 p.m. due to weather conditions currently affecting the Central Texas region.
All tickets and pre-paid parking passes for the May 2 show will be honored for the rescheduled concert tomorrow night, Friday, May 3, at 7 p.m. CDT. Additionally, “Parrotheads” who arrived early at Circuit of The
Americas to camp and tail-gate prior to the show can remain at their respective campsites for Thursday night (May 2) and Friday night (May 3) at no additional charge.
“We are honored to have Jimmy Buffett and The Coral Reefer Band and Jackson Browne and his Band at our new world-class amphitheater, and we want the dedicated fans who travelled from all over the country to see this
special performance to have an enjoyable evening,” Circuit President Steve Sexton said. “We regret any inconvenience this has caused our patrons, and we will work to ensure our guests camping at Circuit of The Americas
are as comfortable as possible.”
A Message from Jimmy
"Well, rule two of the road has reared it's ugly face after a great start to the St. Somewhere Tour in Nashville and Atlanta. That rule is "Never forget it can go to hell at any moment." That occurred today
about noon, when I was having lunch and getting ready to go to work, when I got a call from my tour manager at the gig saying we had major wind problems. Wind gusts at the venue were too strong for us put up our
circus tent and all the toys that go inside. Add to that a wind chill factor of below 40 at showtime. It certainly wasn't going to be comfortable for anybody but more importantly the safety of my crew, band and fans
was an issue. So I made the decision to postpone.
This is not the first time we have had to postpone a show. There was the flood in California, the hurricane in the Gulf and now the windstorm in Texas. Rock n roll has never been predictable. I guess in forty years of
doing it I have learned to roll with the punches and have wonderful fans who have been affected by things like this before. To those folks who can not stay until tomorrow night, I apologize for any inconvenience and
will certainly refund your money if you can't make it. But, to those who can stay, the big top will go up and we will turn Austin into St. Somewhere tomorrow night at 8pm. Some folks might called that island time.
In the meantime, Mac and I are going to the local station in Austin that is co-sponsoring the show and play for an hour live. It will be replayed at 8pm Central on Radio Margaritaville along with a selection of Jackson
Browne's great tunes. I am very excited to be playing with Jackson again. He is one of the great war baby songwriters of our generation and a good friend. That's about it from Austin. I will keep you posted.

Local radio show appearance since the show was delayed.
We kick off with dinner downtown at Micheladas- no one there but it was MUY EXCELENTE! I will be back.
"After high winds and cold temperatures forced him to postpone his Austin show for a day, Jimmy Buffett took the stage at the brand new Tower Amphitheater on Friday night for the first of two shows in the
state of Texas in a 24 hour span.
View the set list for the Austin show here. The set list changed a little from the previous Songs From St Somewhere shows. Buffett dropped both “Useless and Important Information” and
“Oldest Surfer on the Beach.” “Pencil Thin Mustache,” “Knees of My Heart,” and “Tryin’ to Reason With Hurricane Season” made their first appearances of the tour.
Buffett has a quick turnaround. He’ll play Frisco, Texas tonight. You can listen to the show live on Radio Margaritaville.
After the Frisco show, Buffett is off for over a month, except for the Boston benefit show on May 30th. The next tour show is June 22nd in Mansfield, MA."
Great seats! Second row center right in front of Jimmy!
