Jimmy Buffett, Maroon 5 to headline Greenbrier concert series
Maroon 5 and Jimmy Buffett will headline the annual concert series during The Greenbrier Classic in July, the resort announced Tuesday.
Maroon 5 will perform on July 4 at 9:30 p.m. and Jimmy Buffett will perform on July 5 at 9:30 p.m.
The 2014 Greenbrier Classic is scheduled from June 30 to July 6.
Led by Adam Levine, Maroon 5 has won three Grammy Awards since its 2002 debut album “Songs about Jane.” In 2012, the band released its most recent album, “Overexposed.”
Jimmy Buffett is a singer and author who is known for songs like “Cheeseburger in Paradise” and “Margaritaville.”
“We couldn’t be happier to have such an acclaimed group as Maroon 5 and such an iconic American artist like Jimmy Buffett join The Greenbrier Classic Concert Series,” Jim Justice, owner of The Greenbrier, said in a press release.
Last year, the concert series featured the rock legend Aerosmith and country music star Kenny Chesney, and has included other nationally recognized acts since the series began.
A Weekly Grounds badge, which provides admission to the golf event and a single concert, is $60. A Benefactor Badge is $179 and includes admission to the golf events, hospitality tents and both concerts. All badges can be purchased at www.greenbriershopping.com/.
A special deal, dubbed “JJ’s Gift,” also is being offered this year. Guests who book a stay at The Greenbrier between now and May 8 will receive one complimentary badge, which includes complimentary admission to one concert for each night’s stay.
In addition to the concerts, The Greenbrier Classic will feature other attractions this year like the new “Kids Zone”, which will include a putting course, bounce houses, concessions, arts and crafts and face painting.
Several promotions are also scheduled during the tournament.
Local Ford dealers are sponsoring chances for golf fans to win new Ford vehicles on each day of the tournament. Fans must register for the giveaway each day the promotion is active, from July 3-6.
Also, spectators seated in the bleachers and lawn area at Hole 18 on July 2-6 will receive a cash payout for every hole-in-one made by any player, whether amateur of professional during the four competition rounds.
