Buffett at the Greek In LA

Post by sylvanhead » November 29, 2018 5:53 pm

Does anyone know if Buffett played at the Greek in LA in late 70's to mid 80's? If so which show? I've checked Jokelben and am striking out. Trying to find it for a friend. He can't recall when it was, other than he was at USC at the time from 1978-1985

Aug 1, 1985 - https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/jimmy-bu ... 9282e.html

Looks like it was a good concert.... Rita Coolidge and John David Souther joined JB for the encore.

I know the voices aren't real but they do have some good ideas.....

It was not uncommon back in the 1980's and 1990's for Jimmy to do back to back shows. Some times Jimmy would do three nights in a row at venue. During the 1992 tour Jimmy did 3 nights at Greatwoods July 9,10,11 and 3 nights at Pine Knob July 3,4,5. During the 1993 tour Jimmy did a record 4 nights in a row at Greatwoods September 2,3,4 and 5. I should also point out the Jimmy was performing anywhere from 50-60 shows each tour at that time

Plus it's a smaller venue (esp for LA).... maybe 6,000 people?

I believe the 2014 show was at the Greet Theatre in Northern CA......not the Greek Theatre in LA.
