SOASOAS 2018 TOUR Opening Song?

Post by FinsUp6835 » May 17, 2018 8:37 am

Place your bets here (thought this would be fun). If you are correct then you get much respect around these parts :lol: :pirate:

What will be the 2018 SOASOAS tour opening song? You get two picks.

I got my chips on.....

SOASOAS or Mañana !!!!!

You aren't counting if he has a entrance song like Hot , Hot , Hot? Livingston's Saturday night will be my guess.

Livingston Saturday Night is a good guess ... I’m going to guess something from SOASOAS that isn’t the title track, so I’ll go with Mañana, too! That’d be a great opening song! I’ll find out in person in 5 days in Des Moines!

Yeah. Not counting Hot, Hot, Hot or any intro song. First song of the set. Didn't he do Bang on the Drum all day for a couple shows?

I say bring back HOT HOT HOT!

I'd LOVE to hear some harmonica and bell added back to SOASOAS. Such a great nautical vibe. I completely understand Fingers has been sick, but maybe it's time to add a new harmonica player to the band. That would be a great opener, a la You Had to Be There.

Regarding other songs from the album, I'd really like to hear Manana with the original (standard) lyrics. It would also be quite interesting to hear JB explain Fool Button these days.

Yeah, I really miss the sound of Fingers on the songs. I would also love to hear African Friend and Cowboy in the Jungle this year.

Cowboy is one of my favorite tunes.

It would be nice if he would open with Brown Eyed Girl, followed by 5 O’clock Somewhere and then Knee Deep, the Mac – Allman Brothers thing, Take it Easy and finally ‘Cover du Jour’.  This way I can spend an extra hour in the parking lot and walk in when Jimmy Buffett is ready to sing Jimmy Buffett songs.

Maybe a 10 minute intermission where he can plug his hotels, casinos, food, restaurants, townhouse communities, Broadway hit musical (saw it twice BTW – I LOVED it) Sunglass collection, beach clothing line, drink mixes, board games, Kleenex tissues and whatever else he’s selling.

On a more serious note – I don’t care about which song he opens with but HOT HOT HOT or the musical medley of Lage Nom Ai / Far Side of The World etc. should be brought back. The last couple of tour openings have really sucked

I liked the Workin N playin intro into Ragtop Day. I also liked Biloxi into Changes. I guess I disagree that the openings have not been good the last few openings. But different strokes for different pholks :pirate:

The second half of the KC setlist was a little “copy and paste” from previous years, but the first half was so good that I’m pretty mad there’s no Alpine and we just get stupid Wrigley for Chicago. I thought that was one of the best shows I’ve heard in a long time.
