WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. — Jimmy Buffett and Maroon 5 will headline the 2014 Greenbrier Classic Concert Series as part of The Greenbrier Classic, a PGA Tour event.

“I think we’ve really knocked it out of the park,” said Jim Justice, the owner of The Greenbrier Resort, during Tuesday’s concert announcement. “I’m tickled to death because I don’t know how it gets any better than this, I really don’t.”

Jimmy Buffett

Jimmy Buffett will perform in Greenbrier County on Saturday, July 5, while Maroon 5 will headline the Fourth of July show on Friday, which will include fireworks.

The concerts are part of the fifth annual Greenbrier Classic. It opens on June 30 on The Old White TPC course. As of Tuesday, Justice said the field of players had not been finalized.

Maroon 5

Admission to either the Maroon 5 or Jimmy Buffett show is included in the purchase of a weekly Greenbrier Classic tournament badge.  The price is $60 per person and there are also other badge types available.

More information about Greenbrier Classic badges, including purchase information, can be found here.

“We hope you ring the phones until they can’t ring anymore,” said Justice of badge sales.  “We want you to come.”

The lead singer for Maroon 5, a band that’s won three Grammy awards and sold more than 17 million albums worldwide, is Adam Levine who serves as a coach on NBC’s “The Voice.”  Maroon 5′s hits include “She Will Be Loved” and “Moves Like Jagger.”

Buffett is a singer, songwriter and best-selling author who’s known for classic songs like “Margaritaville” and “Cheeseburger In Paradise.”

Justice said separate shows from Lionel Richie and Lady Antebellum—specifically for those involved in making The Greenbrier Classic happen—were scheduled for July 2 and July 3 at Colonial Hall in Lewisburg.

Tickets for those shows are not available to the public.

    Although I don't like these acts that much, at least it's not what people are calling modern country. I can't people in this state actually think that is entertaining to listen to.

  • Shirley Barker

    What is a Greenbrier tournament badge and do u get into both concerts for the price of $60.00 or is it $120.00 and are there packages for staying there to attend?

  • Heather

    All I have to say is that you don't know what your missing if you've never been to a Buffett concert. He's the greatest and parrotheads always throw the best parties

  • Jan

    Buffett...he was popular 40 years ago...30 , 20, 10, 5, and one year ago...is 5 o'clock somewhere....isn't it ???

    • jamnvol

      Parrotheads and golfers from Bristol TN headed your because of Buffett. Is coconut bras & grass skirts proper attire on The Old White? Fins Up

  • Ryan

    I have seen Jimmy Buffett 5 years in a row in Cincinnati. Unfortunately I can't make that show this year so I was thinking of heading all the way from Knoxville, TN over to you guys so I could enjoy the show. After seeing a llllllllll the negative comments from you all, I really don't want to visit your town. I recommend going to the show, you'll have a blast and yeah, he was popular 40 years ago.......I'm 27 and there are kids up to seniors at his shows so don't listen to that fool. Go to the show and have a great time!

    It's 4 days of national publicity for WV. Go, have fun, enjoy. Quit your bitching. What do you contribute for our society? Life is what you make of it.

  • Sheila

    Ive attened the classic shows every year. They are great the food and drink and the music. Wow cant wait

  • GobblyGook

    I guess Jim Justice is having some cash-flow problems if this is the best he can come up with. And to think this year he had a Friday and Saturday night instead of mid-week, and this still is the best he could do?
    As my old buddy Jed Clampett used to say, Pitiful. Mighty Pitiful !!

  • Diane

    Why are so many of you so negative? If you don't like the groups, don't go. Both are well established musical groups. If you don't like them, just don't go. To each their own and let it go. Jim Justice is at least trying to make a difference in WV.

      I attended Jimmy Buffet and it was a great concert. If you didn't attend you missed it, awsome.

    • Larry

      Thanks, that's great advice, I definitely won't be there.
