Paul McCartney, the Eagles, Kenny Chesney, and Zac Brown are among the many artists who will perform in honor of the late Jimmy Buffett at a tribute concert this April.

“Keep the Party Going: A Tribute to Jimmy Buffett,” taking place at the Hollywood Bowl on April 11, will also feature performances by Jon Bon Jovi, Eric Church, Brandi Carlile, Jackson Browne, Sheryl Crow, Jack Johnson, Pitbull, Jake Owen, Buffett’s own Coral Reefer Band, and more special guests.

Tickets for the tribute concert, promoted by Live Nation-Hewitt Silva, go on sale to the general public on March 15.

Many of the artists involved in Keep the Party Going — both friends and collaborators — previously paid tribute to Buffett following the “Margaritaville” legend’s death Sept. 1, 2023, at the age of 76.

“He had a most amazing lust for life and a beautiful sense of humour,” Buffett’s friend McCartney wrote at the time. “When we swapped tales about the past his were so exotic and lush and involved sailing trips and surfing and so many exciting stories that it was hard for me to keep up with him. Right up to the last minute his eyes still twinkled with a humour that said, ‘I love this world and I’m going to enjoy every minute of it’.  So many of us will miss Jimmy and his tremendous personality. His love for us all, and for mankind as a whole.”

Chesney, who teamed up with Buffett in 2018 on an update of “Trying to Reason With Hurricane Season,”  uploaded a solo rendition of “A Pirate Looks at Forty” following the singer-songwriter’s death. Chesney is one of many country artists on the lineup, underscoring Buffett’s influence on Nashville.
