Legendary musician Jimmy Buffett has sadly passed away. He died recently at the age of 76 due to complications from a rare form of skin cancer.

Born James William Buffett in 1946, the icon would sign his first recording contact in 1973, and from there he became the legend that he was.

Buffett had a career that most mortals could only dream about. His "tropic rock" was so popular that it organically created an entire culture of fandom. Those hardcore fans became known as "Parrotheads," and could be found on every corner of the Earth.

The incredible live shows were more than just a concert, they were a community. And, let's face it, a giant party. It would be like combining a college football tailgate with a tropical festival. There was no vibe quite like it.

That vibe even reached Maine on a number of occasions. Buffett was no stranger to the Pine Tree State, and the Parrotheads were always out in full force. This even included a show in 2022, which would ultimately be his last in Maine.

Here's a quick look at Buffett's touring history in the Pine Tree State, with a strong hat tip to setlist.fm for the info. I will officially call the list unofficial, just to be safe.
