Some of music’s biggest stars united to honor and remember Jimmy Buffett at a recent tribute concert.

Buffett’s team unveiled the lineup in March. Many of his closest friends were among the all-star acts listed. Those friends included Kenny Chesney, Zac Brown, Paul McCartney, Jon Bon Jovi, the Eagles, Jake Owen, Snoop Dogg, and Buffett’s Coral Reefer Band, led by Mac McAnally.

The concert was named Keep the Party Going: A Tribute to Jimmy Buffett. It was held at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on April 11.

Chesney joined MacMcAnally during the show to perform “Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes.” Later, Zac Brown took to the stage to sing “Pirates and Parrots,” a song he wrote as a tribute to Buffett.

Brown, Chesney, and McAnally previously joined Alan Jackson at the 2023 CMA Awards for a touching tribute to Buffett.

Other performers sang iconic Buffett songs such as “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere,” “A Pirate Looks at 40,” and “Come Monday.” As you’d expect, everyone came together at the end for a lively performance of Buffett’s signature tune, “Margaritaville.”

Paul McCartney also joined the Eagles to sing “Let It Be,” “Boys of Summer,” and “In the City.”

Some of Buffett’s other friends, such as Dolly Parton and Alan Jackson, couldn’t attend. But they sent in messages that played during the show.
