Jimmy Buffett has been busy on Broadway with the recent premiere of his musical, "Escape to Margaritaville."

Buffett kicked off the 2018 season at Verizon Amphitheatre in Alpharetta with a setlist stocked with fan singalongs ("Fins," "One Particular Harbour," "Pencil Thin Mustache" and, yes, "Margaritaville") that have been staples on his "I Don't Know" tour - and throughout most of his career.

Photographer Chuck Holloway was there to document Buffett's Atlanta-area appearance.
