Re: Rank the Locations You've Seen Jimmy

Great Wood s will always be my top choice, it is where I saw my first concert as a 17 year-old in 1993 and it is the best pre-party in the country. The venue inside the amphitheater itself is not great and very dated. But the parking lot is so epic it more than makes up for it. Many of these places...

Re: Who's Going to Fenway

Tickets selling for as low as $39 on StubHub and field seats within the first 20 rows of the stage selling for less than $180. Hold out long enough and they might pay you to attend the concert. And I heard when Huey Lewis canceled his whole summer tour a lot of people asked for and received refunds ...

Re: Escape to Margaritaville

No Tony nominations, last week the show sold only 55.4% of seats and earned only 35.7% of gross potential. I suspect that it will not make it through the summer because with numbers like that, and no "Tony Nominated..." advertising to be had, investors are going to want to pull the plug quickly. sh...

Re: RM - Matt Hoggatt is AWFUL!

I don't mind some of the chit-chat, news about Jimmy and such.... but I don't need Matt to tell me that Mac MacAnally is a member of Jimmy's band, The Coral Reefers, every time he plays one of Mac's songs. That is how I feel about JD, after each song he has to tell a story about when he first heard...

Re: RM - Matt Hoggatt is AWFUL!

I have SiriusXM in my car but I rarely listen to RM so I've never heard Matt Hoggatt. The only one of his songs I've ever heard is that awful "Dear Jimmy Buffett", or whatever the title of that s*** is. If his DJ'ing is on that same level, I guess I'm not missing anything. I think he is on weekends...

Re: Fenway 2018 (ugh)

I think at this point in mid-April the chances of any summer shows being added in a big venues are slim. Fenway Park is not even close to being sold out and on the secondary market at StubHub there are hundreds of seats available below $100 which is well below the cheapest face Value ticket. I guess...

Re: RM - Matt Hoggatt is AWFUL!

JD Spradlin is also awful. He never shuts up. After every song he drones on and on about a mudande story. Dude, just play the music, no one cares about you or your stories.

He is an opening act so he will do a smaller set list. If you came for the party hopefully the tailgatinging was great.

Huey Lewis and The News cancel all 2018 performances

Buffett needs a new opening act for some of his shows. Sad! From the Facebook page of Huey Lewis and The News Huey Lewis and The News cancel all 2018 performances Two and a half months ago, just before a show in Dallas, I lost most of my hearing. Although I can still hear a little, one on one, and o...

So very happy we decided not to make the drive down for this show. We had started to plan but decided to pull the plug last month and look at other road trip shows.

Fenway Park announced today an unnamed concert that was suppose to take place on Saturday, June 16 has been canceled so they moved the ZBB concert at Fenway from Thursday, June 14 to the 16th. Completely non- Buffett related but just an FYI in case any of you are going to see ZBB the show was moved ...

^^^ I don't think it was season ticket specific. There was a pre-sale already for season ticket holders so any tickets she mentioned to me are almost certainly open to the public. She has been contacting me for about 2 weeks trying to get me to upgrade my Red Sox tickets and I have been ignoring her...

We're going to Fenway! I was really excited as we got decent field seats. I was so excited when we got the pre sale code and just jumped on them. I'm getting more and more disappointed after reading stuff on FB and here. Is it REALLY that bad? We've been to Great Woods, Camden , Jones Beach, all gr...

Re: Buffett Songs you just don't want to hear anymore....

Guess I'm in the tiny minority here, but... The SYKBH songs belong in nearly every show, period. This isn't some annoying thing only Jimmy does, its very standard for an artist to play his or her hits ... much less Come Monday?!?! I agree. They are not my favorite songs but they are the songs that ...

The Boston show was near the end of February in 1999 so MSG was before Boston so you heard it first, lucky you. :lol:

Re: What is the WORST Jimmy Buffett song?

One of the 1st times if not the 1st time he ever played Math Suks was in Feb 1999 in Boston at the Garden. He was out on the Don't Stop the Carnival tour and did a winter swing through the Northeast and this was the last stop of that tour. Towards the end he said he was going to do a new song from t...

Too drunk to Karaoke and Math Suks are awful.

If we are adding in cover songs his version of Glory Days is atrocious.

Re: 2017 I Don't Know Tour Sellouts?

Maybe someone in the inner circle should tell the boss that many people are no longer willing to pay $170+ (including service charges) for what's become a stale set list increasingly reliant on cover tunes. I've said it many times before - if I wanted to hear other peoples' songs, I'd go to other p...
