Review of the Indianapolis Show

Billboard has a review of my the show last week at Verizon Wireless Music Center: “Buffett – Aug. 11, 2009 – Indianapolis” by Jeff Vrabel.

Now in its 300-and-somethingth year of wandering the country, the caravan stops to jam-pack amphitheaters (this year in the stinky thick of Recession Summer), deliver two-and-a-half hours of bright sunshiney goods and move the whole train to the next station. It’s all one big mobile circus of good-natured staples, well-chosen cover songs, alcoholic squishies and an irrationally reliable good time. Barring some sort of catastrophic crash in the coconut-bra manufacturing sector or the blow-up pool market, it remains nearly impossible to look at the crowds (and the receipts) and think of a remotely logical reason to get this show off the road.
