BURGETTSTOWN, PA (CelebrityAccess) — Miffed Jimmy Buffett fans were denied access to a cheeseburger in paradise after long lines and security delays left hundreds of fans stranded outside of his concert at the KeyBank Pavilion on Saturday night.
Photos posted the social media accounts of irate parrotheads showed large crowds of people outside of the venue, even after the show had reportedly started.
Some fans reported paying $100 parking fees and waiting in line for two hours before they were admitted in time for the final songs of the concert.

In a subsequent statement, the venue’s operator Live Nation said:
“During last night’s show, some fans experienced longer than normal wait times. We apologize for the inconvenience and frustration this may have caused and will continue working hard to prevent situations like this from happening again in the future. Any fans who experienced delays are encouraged to reach out to Ticketmaster Fan Support.”
Live Nation did not elaborate on what led to the delays in security at the gate of the amphitheater. The gates opened at 6:30 pm, one and a half an hour before the show’s 8 p.m. start time.
