Remember the first time you smoked pot with your parents? It was probably at a Jimmy Buffett concert, somewhere between "Pencil Thin Mustache" and "Son of a Son of a Sailor."
What you thought would be the absolute worst concert on Earth -- an arena full of upper-middle class baby boomers in Tommy Bahama garb and parrot-feathered headdresses -- turned out to be a life-changing moment: You, mom, and dad bonding over a spliff, finally admitting that you all enjoy getting high.
Relive the "full Margaritaville experience" when Jimmy Buffet, the Coral Reefer Band, and 20,000 Parrotheads roll through the American Airlines Arena on Saturday, January 28.
Buffett is currently on the "Welcome to Fin Land" tour promoting Encores, a live double album comprised of the songs performed during the singer's second encore at his legendary shows. Miami's the first stop on the tour.

Captain Buffett's no stranger to the AAA. Dude's a die-hard Miami Heat fan and he can often be spotted sitting courtside on game days. In fact, he was ejected from the arena ten years ago after cursing at the referee during an Eastern Conference showdown between the Heat and the Knicks.
Apparently, ol' Jimmy's just as passionate about b-ball as he is about cheeseburgers, margaritas, and good ganja.
