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.

    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!

  • WTF

    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.

    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 !!

    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.

  • c kyle

    Tim mcgraw & luke bryan was the best show ive seen there...!!

  • Woodchuck0

    Nice job Jim Justice.

    I will be drinking the cool-aid again.

    Great publicity for us.

  • gnarly dude

    No worse than that corny modern country garbage that has been headlining. Wash.

  • jay zoom

    WHO THE HELL IS MAROON 5 will Oliver LUCK be in the parking lot collecting $20.00

  • Donna Montgomery

    Fantastic!

  • CaptainQ

    Was THIS part of what Jim Justice needed to pay for with those tax breaks he just got from the Legislature? If so, the state just got ripped off BIG time!

  • Nobody

    I know it would be hard to top Aereosmith but they've done it with Maroon 5! (I guess Travis Tritt was booked up) I hope next year they have Lady Gaga and Bruno Mars...

    • Larry

      I heard Neal McCoy turned them down.

    Is it me, or has the entertainment for this thing steadily gotten worse and worse?

    • Lee

      I actually think the concerts have been pretty good till this year. Major disappointment.

      • Larry

        Yeah, personally I wouldn't pay a dollar to go see these two acts. I imagine interest in this event in general has waned some over the years, and attendance will definitely be down this year without the presence of top ranked philanderer Tiger Woods.

        • Brian

          Well, that settles it. If Larry says it, or thinks it, it must be so!

          • George borst

            Buffett for president.....thanks Jim

        • Hop'sHip

          Who WOULD you be excited about, Larry?

    • patrick

      It's you!

      • Larry

        That was really more of a rhetorical question, Jimmy Buffet was very popular, 40 years ago, and Maroon 5, are you kidding me, they are terrible. It has definitely gotten worse.

        • jrr63

          The Question I have is have you gone to a Jimmy Buffett concert before? It is one the best shows I have even gone too. The show he puts on is awesome.

        • Brian

          I thought you said that was a rhetorical question!
