Jimmy Buffett Appearing On ‘New Year’s Rockin’ Eve’

TV viewers will get to see a bit of Jimmy Buffett and his Coral Reefer Band's New Year' Eve show tonight (December 31) at Brooklyn's Barclays Center.

The group's performance of the staple "Margaritaville" is slated to be part of the "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest" broadcast, which starts at 10 p.m. on ABC. It's not known exactly when in the show Buffett's portion will air, and if it will be taped or live.

Buffett is the lone classic rock entry on the show, which is populated primarily by contemporary favorites such as One Direction, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Ellie Goulding, Fall Out Boy, OMI and others.

Buffett has not yet announced tour plans for 2016.
