Parrottheads flock to get tickets to Buffett benefit concert

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Parrottheads lined up at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum Wednesday to get their hands on tickets to Jimmy Buffett's Gulf Coast benefit concert. The Coast native is organizing a free concert July 1, in Gulf Shores, Alabama.

Buffett's website says the concert is to demonstrate support for the people, businesses and culture of the Gulf Coast, as oil continues to spew off-shore. A list of country music stars will join him, including Kenny Chesney, Zac Brown Band, Sonny Landreth, Jesse Winchester and Allen Toussaint.

A souvenir T-shirt is being designed for the event. It'll be available online and at the show. Although the concert is free, tickets are required. You can get them at Ticketmaster or CMT.com. If you can't make it in person, you can watch the concert live on CMT and then repeated over the Fourth of July weekend.
