Re: Who's Going to Irvine, Verizon Amphitheatre 10/21?

Someone in our club got ticketed. No warning. Her husband has photos of the same cop just warning people though Yeah, the Irvine PD was ridiculously overbearing. A gang of 6 cops roaming the aisles looking for any minor infraction, then Verizon security doing the same! Whoever ran that operation is...

Re: Who's going to Las Vegas-10.23.10? Update pg 29

Vegas Phans - The FINS BUS is rolling into town today! Heather and I saw Jimmy in Irvine last night and had a ball. The tailgating was awesome, and Jimmy put on a great show. We are leaving at Noon. If anyone sees a large black & gold country coach tour bus with "FINS BUS" California plates on I 15...

Re: Who's Going to Irvine, Verizon Amphitheatre 10/21?

Irvine Phans, Well, all in all, a good show. It did not rain, we got lucky here! It was super to see the gang (Crabman, Mrs Crabman, SITC, and everyone else!). The show was good, a couple of old favorites and Jimmy sounded sharp in my opinion. Not a big phan of the Nadira solo personally, but she i...

Hello Vegas Phans!! The FINS BUS is fueled, iced and ready for Irvine, then the road trip to see Jimmy in Vegas with all of you! Heather, myself and our two boston terriers will be at the block party, hope to see you. Look for the old guy (51) with a PIRET 40 and a FINS BUS license plate as a neckl...

Re: Awaiting WEST COAST dates...and here they come!

Hello Parrothead Nation! Great to see Jimmy is coming west! We were just mulling over taking the FINS BUS east! We are coming off seeing the Eagles to Hollywood Bowl twice last week, and at Anaheim's Pond, with a detour to see Don Henley at a private benefit concert in Dallas for his kid's grade sc...

Re: Tour Date Rumors

Time to ....... Start checking BN for the latest 2010 JB date rumors. Stop mourning Kenny Chesney not touring. Get my tour bus (FINS BUS plate) out of the charter fleet used in PGA, NASCAR & related race circuits to get it ready for "my tour" of Jimmy shows, Don Henley in February, Bon Jovi in Febru...

The Ultimate, I mean Ultimate Beach

As a 50 year old BNer, and a fairly successful one at that, it has been my pleasure to see many beautiful beaches. Well, today, I have capped a week at the best I have ever seen. I am lucky to work directly for the founder of our $500M business after 30 years, and stayed at his 110 acre ocean front ...

Re: Sorry Mr. Chesney, nice show, but Buffett you aren't!!

Kenny is no Jimmy, but maybe, he is going to be bigger. I am a huge Jimmy fan pholks, 120 shows. Nuff said. About Kenny, he is country, he has an island flair, and I would not be surprised if he has studied the Jimmy business model and knows Jimmy will stop touring and a gap will occur. Kenny's conc...

Re: ...you might be a parrothead

If you have "done it" in a Buffett tailgate parking lot (Great Woods, Irvine, Ft. Lauderdale, et al)...... you might be a parrothead. If you brought your 30' boat in on a wide load trailer to a tailgate in Irvine with 40 friends aboard and the Buffett videographer having sex down below with some gir...

Right back at ya Dean! Sounds like the LV show was fun! Alas, I was in Vegas for Chesney and Bon Jovi the week before and we took the plane to Salt Lake for The Eagles, we had too much going on to make the Vegas show. Had I known Jimmy was cancelling the fall shows, we would have fit it in. We now h...

Ahhhh Jimmy....... As a San Diego & San Clemente guy, I was also looking forward to my hometown show, the Vegas shows, the insane tailgate and the Margaritaville block party in the alley at the Flamingo. That said, in my 120 shows (including Irvine last week), Jimmy has only cancelled twice. Irvine ...

Re: Who's Going to Irvine, 5/21/09?

Well, for Heather and I, the show was not our favorite. Jimmy did not play many of our songs we love, ugh (Bama Breeze, Elvis song, He went to Paris, etc.). Getting in was a joke, a big shovefest. Several friends actually could not even get to their seats once in as the crowd was huge in the aisle b...

INXS (hey, we grew up in the 80's) Stones (to wake us up after five hours of tailgate drinking) Lenny Kravitz (wife fav) Sheryle Crow (wife fav) Bob Marley (of course!) FINS UP !...
