The Boston Globe has a review of Saturday’s show: “Parrotheads, Jimmy Buffett party down”
As happened with the moptops, fans don’t seem to come to a Buffett concert for the music so much as for the ritual. Saturday at the Xfinity Center, there was tailgating, beachball-thwacking and head-fin tilting. Oh, and there were some songs, too.
Being somewhat incidental to his own happening should be old hat by now to Buffett, but if the man is bemused by what unfolds before him as he sings his songs of coastal leisure, he never showed it. Despite being the nominal ringmaster, he essentially let the audience run its own circus. Everything about Buffett himself was unassuming, from his voice to his casual beachwear to his jokes, which includes such eyeroll-worthy dadisms as naming a nonexistent Maine volcano “Mt. Lobsteramus.”

The Cleveland Plain Dealer has a review of Tuesdays show: “Jimmy Buffett keeps a soggy Blossom Music Center crowd awash in happy sounds”
Jimmy Buffett, who first sold out Blossom Music Center 23 years ago and came within a rainstorm of doing so Tuesday night, will never be a torch singer. But that doesn’t mean he isn’t passing one.
Or more accurately, helping in the passing of one. Or a few thousand.
The 19,000-plus who packed the soggy venue in Cuyahoga Falls featured the expected number of shall-we-say-VETERAN Parrotheads, whose natural feathers tended toward gray.

From The Akron Beacon Journal: “Buffett fans rock out in drive-ins”
Singer/songwriter/master marketer Jimmy Buffett has built a near half-billion dollar empire selling a philosophy and lifestyle primarily to boomers and increasingly their kids.
For 30-plus years, the 67-year-old and his Coral Reefer Band have toured the country with fans in tow, transforming America’s amphitheater parking lots into temporary Margaritavilles, named for his most famous — and his only for most non-Parrotheads — hit song.
But on Thursday night, Buffett, whose entire life resembles a really long, awesome dream, got to live out yet another dream. He performed a concert at the Coyote Drive-in in Panther Island, Ft. Worth, Texas and at the same time on screens at 87 drive-ins around the country, using a complicated technological process he described during the show as being beamed “from Ft. Worth to space and beyond.”
