CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The wait is over. Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band will perform at Riverbend Music Center for one night only Tuesday as part of Buffett's "I Don't Know'" Tour 2016.

Local Parrot Heads won't want to miss their chance to soak in the full Margaritaville experience.

Tailgating will be permitted for the Jimmy Buffett show in the designated Coney Island parking lots.

When you arrive, ask a Coney Island parking attendant to direct you to the correct lot.

"Summer fun in Cincinnati doesn't begin until Jimmy Buffett & The Coral Reefer band come to town," said Executive Director, Mike Smith in a prepared statement.

"Riverbend Music Center is proud to welcome back its top selling artist of all time for what we expect to be another unforgettable performance."

Parrot Heads have already given the "Fins Up" for the first ever floating Margaritaville Restaurant and 5 O'Clock Somewhere Bar aboard the all new Norwegian Cruise Line, Norwegian Escape.  It's based in Miami and sails the Caribbean Sea.

Meanwhile, back on land, the idea of turning Margaritaville into a musical has been percolating for quite a while but now it's gearing up to make its debut.

The musical will have its world premiere at the La Jolla Playhouse, in La Jolla, California, in May 2017. It will feature the music and lifestyle of Jimmy Buffett, from an original story, and includes both new songs and the most-loved Buffett classics.

Speaking of Buffett classics, the most famous of them all, "Margaritaville" has been inducted into the 2016 Grammy Hall of Fame for its cultural and historic significance.

Only those recordings that have influenced and inspired both music creators and fans for generations are considered for this most special honor.
