Re: Jones Beach concert not sold out

Maybe it's not sold out because people are tired of stale setlists and too many cover songs. I'm only going to the show because I used to live here and I haven't been back for 2 years. I've posted on here enough about the stale set lists (basically seeing the same show every year) and I absolutely ...

Re: I am not feeling it

I wish he would do a rarities tour but I don't think he ever will. He doesn't seem to have any interest in it. As I said earlier in the thread, I think he genuinely feels he's serving his fans, and the Margaritaville brand, best by doing what he's doing, which is touring every year and playing a mor...

Re: Rare Copy of Havana Daydreamin' LP

So what do these alternate/limited/test versions of "Havana Daydreaming" with the song "Please Take Your Drunken 15-Year-Old Girlfriend Home" sell for these days? I've long looked for one on eBay and in various used record stores and never been able to find one.

Re: I am not feeling it

JB really does need to drop the cover songs. He's 70 now. No more BEG or Southern Cross. How about more A1A songs? Or some "other" songs from any of the 1970s albums, the albums and songs that made him Jimmy Buffett. I really get a kick out of it when people say, "Jimmy NEEDS to..." Jimmy doesn't "...

Re: This one really for you?????

You can now see all of the songs in their standings. Good to see 70% of my songs in the bottom 50 lol. Man, the masses just don't understand JB and what his music is all about. Yeah the big 10 are hits for a reason but my god he has so many awesome, well written songs. He really deserves better and...

Re: This one really for you?????

I can't believe Parrotheads don't have more in-depth knowledge of his catalog than to choose all the standard stuff he plays all the time. Not everyone voting are 'hard core' Parrotheads.. :) Clearly. I really hope that Jimmy will play some of the more interesting "non standard" choices at this sho...

Re: This one really for you?????

I just took another look at the top 30 trending songs. According to the little arrow next to the song title, 24 of the 30 are trending down. Then why the f**k aren't they dropping off the list? I just checked the top 30 and it pretty much looks like a regular ol' Buffett set list. So disappointing....

Re: SYCDW - Songs You Could Do Without

Frankly I would not miss any of them. I've stated on this board many times that I wish Jimmy would do more rarities and dig deeper into his catalog. I've been going to Buffett shows since the late 1980s and I am definitely tired of seeing so many of the same songs played EVERY year. I can't imagine...

Re: SYCDW - Songs You Could Do Without

I should point out that I am fine with Fins, Pirate, Changes, 5 O'Clock, and, of course, Margaritaville at every show. He just needs to pare down the list of staples a bit so the shows aren't so damned predictable. :-)

Re: Solana Beach, Cali

Here's a shot of the setlist. Seems like for such an intimate show he would break from routine and treat folks to a lot of stuff they wouldn't normally get at the big shows. Instead, it's the same ol' same ol'. Cool that he played such a small place though. [img]http://www.************.com/images/n...

Re: Solana Beach, Cali

there was a problem during sales and at 9:00:01 everyone i know (and read on the 'net) said they couldn't get in. However over the next hour or two tickets started trickling out to those who kept searching. I tried from 8:55 to around 9:40 and then a few times more over the next few hours. Never co...

Re: Solana Beach, Cali

This is pretty astonishing. The Belly Up Tavern is a very intimate place. Quite a bit smaller than the Fillmore in SF which is where Jimmy has played a few gigs in recent years. I tried to get tickets for the Solana Beach show this morning but never had a chance. Congrats to those few who were lucky...

Re: The US Festival

I definitely remember the US Festival. I wanted to go so badly (I was in high school at the time) but my folks wouldn't let me. Of course in those days all I cared about was hard rock and metal so I wanted to see Van Halen, Motley Crue, Scorpions, Priest, etc.

I heard about this contest but worry (as people have said here already) that if the "fans" choose this setlist it's going to be filled with all the songs he plays all the time anyway. I think for the contest to actually mean something they should eliminate all the setlist "standards" that he plays a...

Re: 2013 Songs from St. Somewhere Tour Set List tracker

Good to see he seems to have retired Brown-Eyed Girl for this tour. Now if he'll just do the same with Southern Cross, Volcano, Come Monday, and Cheeseburger. Yeah, yeah, I know it'll never happen but those of us looking to see some deeper tracks from Mr. Buffett and not the same ol' show every year...
