Jimmy Buffett, Def Leppard set for Jones Beach

It's still freezing outside, but maybe thinking about Jimmy Buffett will warm you up.

Sag Harbor's King of the Parrotheads will return to Nikon at Jones Beach Theater this summer, with his “Welcome to Fin Land” Tour, which pulls in on Aug. 19.

“Jimmy Buffett coming back to Jones Beach is like family member coming home for the holidays, it’s always a party,” says Kevin Morrow, president of Live Nation New York, in a statement. “We look forward to another unforgettable night of great music with Jimmy in Long Island.”

Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. Monday through Ticketmaster, with an eight-ticket limit per person.

Also set for Jones Beach this summer is Def Leppard, who will be supporting their first live album “Mirrorball” when they arrive on July 12, with Heart. Tickets for that show ($29-$125) go on sale at 11 a.m. Saturday through Live Nation, though the pre-sale for Citi cardmembers starts at 10 a.m. tomorrow.

UPDATE: Journey announced today that it will play Jones Beach on Aug. 17 with Foreigner, though no ticket info is available yet.
