    A free Jimmy Buffett concert that was scheduled for Alabama later this week and to celebrate the holiday weekend was postponed under the threat of high surf from Tropical Storm Alex, which is currently approaching the coasts of Texas and Mexico. Buffet had planned to play the show along the Gulf Coast to help boost the local economy and tourism to the oil spill-battered region.

    The Associate Press reported that promoters hoped the Thursday show on the beach at Gulf Shores would boost visitors for the Fourth of July weekend. But the show was moved to July 11 in wake of the weather surge.

    Local businesses, like hotels, reported that many people are putting off their trips until later, while some are canceling altogether.

    Were you planning on attending this show? What else can you do to help the Gulf Coast?
