Re: An Open Letter to Jimmy Buffett

Wow, that is nuts! They should have turned away lawn folks at the door and given refunds on the spot. They should still issue refunds for anybody who had to endure that. Terrible. I would not be surprised to see Buffett force the venue or the promoter to issue refunds. That is no way for paying fans...

Re: Tom Petty is Doing a "Rarities" Tour -- Why Can't Buffett?

I think I will start a separate thread where people can post their "dream" Jimmy Buffett set list. I guess I'll need to come up with mine first.

Re: Tom Petty is Doing a "Rarities" Tour -- Why Can't Buffett?

I wasn't calling you a tight ass, you are a tight ass. This is a goofy message board talking about a highly theoretical tour that a performer who doesn't stray from a concept will never do and you are treating like we are discussing the possibility of it actually happening. Relax, get a massage, tr...

Re: Tom Petty is Doing a "Rarities" Tour -- Why Can't Buffett?

Everyone here wants to stuff a square peg in a round hole. As Dr Corona deftly pointed out Petty and Jimmy are two different artists and have always marched to different beats. Will Beiber fans expect him to do a tour of Sinatra songs? Are the Who going to go acoustic? Jimmy Buffett sitting on a st...

Re: Tom Petty is Doing a "Rarities" Tour -- Why Can't Buffett?

Anyone remember a year or two ago where he was going to do an album a night? How long did that last----one night maybe? Yeah, he definitely played the "Volcano" album at least once or twice in its entirety a couple of years ago (they even released the "Volcano" show as an EP) but soon after they we...

Re: Tom Petty is Doing a "Rarities" Tour -- Why Can't Buffett?

Seriously, why would he risk it? Tours are expensive things to put together, lucrative if they come off but financially and reputationally damaging if they don't. Buffett Inc. has a well proven, working, financially rewarding formula that see most gigs put up the house full sign. Clearly the regula...

Tom Petty is Doing a "Rarities" Tour -- Why Can't Buffett?

Tom Petty is currently touring theaters playing set-lists comprised largely of obscure songs, covers, and other rarities from his catalog. What I would give for Jimmy to do something like this!!!! Buffett has a huge catalog of great music yet such a small amount of it is ever heard live because he s...

Seems like there have been incomplete tour t-shirts in the past....makes sense when the t shirts are printed well in advance of the first show and the later shows haven't even been finalized yet...What else would they put on them...??? As far as venues go???.... I would love to see him at the Gorge...

Re: I Can't Believe No West Coast Dates Yet!!

Seeing the T-Shirts does not give me much hope for any West Coast Dates. I know that there has been some variance in the past but does anyone know of a time where a possible 5-6 dates were missing from the shirts?

Survive is an excellent rarity to get on this tour. He should play more of the lesser know obscure stuff.

Re: Who's Going to Shoreline (Mountain View CA) 10/16?

What did people think of the show? I was way down front and it seemed like Jimmy was a little tired perhaps? Still, there was some definite great moments. Loved "It's My Job" and "Woman Going Crazy on Caroline Street"! Two of my all-time faves.

Shockingly there's never been a problem getting tickets to this so resorting to scalpers isn't necessary. But I noticed that there wasn't much available when I went to purchase them in August, even for "single" seats :o Usually there are two Vegas shows every year but this year there is only one, s...

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

What's the usual ticket scene in Vegas before the shows? I'm hoping there will be some scalping going on and that prices will come down. Currently on Ebay and Stubhub, even nosebleed seats are going for over $200 each. I'm flying in Saturday afternoon and don't have a ticket. Only need one -- will p...

What's the Ticket Scene at the Vegas Show?

I'm going to the Vegas show on the 23rd but don't have a ticket. I'm shocked at the prices I'm seeing on Ebay, Stubhub, Craigslist, etc. for even nosebleed seats. I'm thinking that there will be plenty of tickets available at the venue for more reasonable prices. Anybody been to past Vegas shows and...

Re: 2011 Back to the Beginning Tour

It'd be great if Buffett did a tour where he focuses more on songs he rarely plays rather than another tour where 80% of the set list is the same as he's been doing on every tour for the past 25 years. It doesn't need to be strictly pre-1990 stuff. I'd like to see him mix it up with quality rarities...
