with a Shoreline show..? not so much.. What do you mean? I know Shoreline is a pretty crappy venue but if you want to get a large group together for a Buffett show then it can work OK. Certainly better than the Fillmore if you want to organize a group to go. The last time Buffett played at Shorelin...

Looking at the current tour dates it's looking to me like he may indeed play the Fillmore again, probably in October. Doesn't look like there are many other spots to plug in a Bay Area date. If this is the case, I have to admit I'm a little disappointed. While it's great to see Jimmy in a smaller ve...

I've long wished Jimmy would play less standards and more obscure stuff live. I've really grown tired of One Particular Harbor live. They do it pretty much every show and it's too long and they never change it up. There are others I don't ever need to hear live again but I'm done pretending that Buf...

I saw Jimmy several times at the Hollywood Bowl back in the early '90s. He played there on the Air Margaritaville Tour. Those are some of my favorite Buffett shows ever. Great venue. Magical. I even got to shake Jimmy's hand as he was making his way to the stage with his guitar. Great memories.

I totally dig Radio Margaritaville and SIRIUS Radio!!! Buffett and Howard Stern are two of my favorite entertainers so this is radio heaven for me. I am surprised how many XM owners there are on here. Why would anybody get XM, especially since SIRIUS has Radio Margaritaville??????

Pardon me if I'm behind the times here but where is the song "Here we Are" from? I can't find it anywhere.

If you're going to stay in the City, stay in the Midtown/Times Square area so you can walk to the show. You won't have any trouble finding good bars and restaurants in the areas around MSG. BUT, staying in the City will cost you $200-$300/night for a decent hotel so if money is an issue, you can sta...

They've been having some bad weather this year. I saw them at Shoreline in April and it was freezing. Hardly Buffett show weather. Then rain at Atlanta and now Charlotte. Too bad.

I would ask him why he doesn't play fewer "standards" in concert and play more obscure stuff. Honestly, does he really think that his fans are going to feel cheated if he doesn't play "Let's Get Drunk and Screw" or "One Particular Harbor" for the zillionth time? I can see the need to play "Margarita...

I put this one in Jimmy's top five. Anybody who says it sucks is not a true parrothead. EVERY song on it is good. If you don't like it you're not really that into Jimmy's music. It's classic Buffett!

At the San Jose show last weekend...

I was there having a grand ol' time although some of the evening is a blur. I seem to recall Jimmy saying something about Hunter S. Thompson but I'm thinking maybe I dreamed it. Does anybody remember, and if he did say anything about Hunter, what was it? Thanks for your help! :pirate:

I think one of the greatest videos I've seen was one he played on the Air Margaritaville tour in the early '90s. I don't remember a whole lot about it other than it's kind of an Indiana Jones type of deal with Jimmy flying around in his seaplane to the tune of Boat Drinks. I saw like 3 or 4 shows on...
