Buffett Benefit Bumped

Comments Off 30 June 2010


Jimmy Buffett’s concert response to the unprecedented disaster in the Gulf has been delayed by a more familiar part of summer in the region, the arrival of hurricane season. Alex, the first named storm of the season, is not expected to pose an immediate threat to Gulf Shores, Alabama, site of the benefit show, but surf conditions could make the stage unstable, so the date has been pushed back from July 1st to July 11th. Response to the concert announcement was huge with all 35,000 free tickets going in just under 10 minutes. Scalpers swept in, prompting eBay to disallow online auctions of the tickets on their site.
