It's going to be an unhappy Christmas for Jimmy Buffet's Parrothead faithful in Orlando. Buffett has postponed his Amway Center show on Dec. 7 and his Tampa show due to shoulder surgery and the necessary rest and recovery time.

A new date for the Orlando show has already been announced, Dec. 5, 2020, still at the Amway Center. In the meantime, maybe assuage your grief by attending Buffett's musical, Escape to Margaritaville, at the Dr. Phillips Center?
