CINCINNATI (FOX19) -

In Jimmy Buffett's "fins" song a woman from Cincinnati makes her way to tropical living in Florida. We imagine thousands of people hope to follow her at Riverbend Music Center Tuesday night.

Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band will perform at Riverbend for one night only at 8 p.m. as part of the musician's "Workin' n' Playin'" Tour 2015.

Local “Parrotheads” won't miss their chance to soak in the full Margaritaville experience.

"28 consecutive years and still going strong. Summer in Cincinnati would not be complete without a performance by Jimmy Buffett," said Executive Director Mike Smith, "We are excited to welcome back Riverbend's top selling artist of all time."

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the release of Jimmy's A1A album, his first Top 40 record, which includes

the hit, "A Pirate Looks At Forty", a perennial concert favorite.

Here is something you may not know: Buffett used to play at Timberwolf Amphitheatre at Kings Island, and that's where fans say they got the nickname "Parrotheads."

This year, the party will be starting early with tail gating and pre-partying near Riverbend beginning this morning well in advance of the show.
