Jimmy Buffett to be simulcast live at the drive-in

The Long Prairie Drive-In Theater will host a live Jimmy Buffett concert (simulcast live from Texas) on Thursday, June 19. The gates open at 5 p.m., and The Island Time Steel Drum Band from the Twin Cities will perform a tailgate party pre-show from 6 to 8 p.m.

The concert will be simulcast live from Panther Island, Fort Worth, Texas, where Jimmy Buffett and The Coral Reefer Band will perform.

Buffett and his team have created an authentic production at The Coyote Drive-In in Fort Worth, complete with vintage cars, and will be broadcasting the show in high definition.

The first of its kind, this concert is done in cooperation with drive-ins across the country to allow concerts to be available to local communities. In the future, it could become a “Live at the Drive-In Music Series.”

The event will support the drive-in community after its recent transition to digital cinema and allow musicians the opportunity to reach more people.

To purchase tickets, visit or visit the Long Prairie Drive-In Theater concessions building.
