Jimmy Buffett took the stage at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival as a blind referee, complete with uniform, glasses, cane, and assistance from a pair of Saints cheerleaders. Saints fans will not forget a significant no-call by the refs on a pass interference that led to the team’s exit from the postseason.
The set list from the show is now available. Some of the highlights from the show included ” I Will Play For Gumbo”, “Jamaica Mistaica”, and a cover of the Rolling Stones “You Can’t Always Get What You Want”
Jimmy Buffett strutted on to the Acura Stage at Jazz Fest wearing something a little different than his typical attire.
In an homage to the New Orleans Saints, Buffett wore a blind referee costume complete with a cane and two women dressed in Saintsation costumes on his arms.
He tapped his way on to the stage while holding a beer and threw a bright yellow flag. Then the costumed dancers tore off Buffett’s costume to reveal a floral Hawaiian shirt.
