Jimmy Buffett to Play Free Concert on Alabama Coast
Tue, 22 Jun 2010 08:39:53
It's not Margaritaville, but hey, it's even better. Singer Jimmy Buffett will perform a free concert on the Alabama coast to show support for the battered Gulf region at the heart of the catastrophic BP oil spill. The show will be on the beach, at Gulf Shores, on July 1. What a way to kick off the holiday weekend, right? The concert is aimed to support the people, businesses and culture of the Gulf Coast, which is commendable, given all the press that has gone toward BP Oil! Sure, it's negative press, but still! It's all talk and no action! The Buffett concert will be broadcast live in CMT, as well.
Other performers include Zac Brown Band, Kenny Chesney, Jesse Winchester and Allen Toussaint.
A limited edition souvenir concert t-shirt will also be available at the show and online.
What else can acts do to support the Gulf Coast?
