Fresh off of the Broadway debut of his new musical, “Escape to Margaritaville,” James William Buffett III is hitting the road again, this time with a tour celebrating his classic 1978 album “Son of a Son of a Sailor.” Now, I know what you’re thinking. Traditionally, Jimmy Buffett’s music has been reserved for a select group of people — those happy few who unironically enjoy island-themed chain restaurants, love singing about cheeseburger toppings, and, at least according to my mom, like to disappear down to Corpus Christi in the middle of the week without telling their families (thanks, Aunt Jan). But I think that if we’re all honest with ourselves, Mr. Buffett’s music is far more universal than we would like to admit. Who among us hasn’t gazed longingly at a fishbowl margarita that was being carried to someone else’s table? Or said “Well, it’s 5 o’clock somewhere!” with a little bit more sincerity than we let on? You’re telling me you don’t want to go on a midweek Corpus Christi bender? Not even a little bit? Come on, now. It’s time to face the facts: The only thing keeping you from enjoying a Jimmy Buffett concert is you. So put aside your pride, take up your Hawaiian shirt, and let yourself live on island time. Avowed Parrotheads will want to go ahead and drop the $146 for floor tickets, but seats in the stands can be got for $29.
