Miranda Lambert in Paradise

Margaritaville has a blog up with a recent special guest at the St. Louis show: “Miranda Lambert in Paradise

We were unloading trucks at 8 a.m. in St. Louis, getting ready to kick off the July leg of the tour, when our production office got a phone call. Miranda Lambert was on her way from Nashville to see her very first Jimmy Buffett show. I immediately sent word to Jimmy, and he texted back a few minutes later with a request to meet her before the show. Before I even ate breakfast, the St. Louis show had already promised to reach a new level.

A few hours later I brought Miranda and her crew to meet Jimmy. Miranda was wearing a flower lei as a headband, feeling the vibe of the day and explained to Jimmy this was her first Buffett show. The dressing room was full of smiles and chatter as Jimmy asked Miranda to be a guest on The Bing and Bong Show and then join him on stage to sing Margaritaville. She looked a little surprised, this was after all a little vacation for her, but how can you say no to the king of good times?

The Bing and Bong Show was its usual organized chaos and Miranda went with the flow with ease. You never know what Bing and Bong will bring you live and you have to roll with it depending on the day’s topic and viewer mail. During the broadcast Miranda mentioned that Son of a Sailor was one of her favorite Buffett songs and with that, she instantly became one of the best Bing and Bong guests of the year.

Buffett performs in Detroit

Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band performed on Tuesday night at the DTE Energy Music Theatre in Detroit. The set list from the show is now available.

A review of the show from the Oakland Press: “Review: Jimmy Buffett starts the weekend early at DTE”

“Starting the weekend early” is how Jimmy Buffett described his annual visit to the metro area on Tuesday night, July 11, at the DTE Energy Music Theatre. And the Parrotheads certainly proved him correct throughout the two-hour show — and even before.

Buffett and his 11-member Coral Reefer Band provided more than just a soundtrack to the festivities, though the two-hour, 24-song show gave the Parrotheads the desired combination of party songs and sea chanteys. But chilling the theatrics and scripted elements of previous summer outings, it was also a testament to the depth of the singer’s 47-year catalog, a combination of his own rich songwriting — never better than on ballads such as “Son Of A Son Of A Sailor,” “A Pirate Looks At 40” and “Come Monday” — and smartly chosen covers.

Buffett pandered unapologetically to the home crowd all night, from a “Hello, Pine Knob!” at the start of the show to several lyrical alterations nodding to Detroit and Michigan in general. And for the group’s rendition of McAnally’s “Back Where I Come From,” the rear-stage video screen showed images of the Detroit skyline as well as images of area icons from Bob Seger and Aretha Franklin to Glenn Frey, Mike Ilitch, Gordie Howe and Michigan and Michigan State football.
