my kids are done in May - Jimmy's probably are too :lol:

Of course they go back Aug 8th - just in time for hurricanes... :roll:

I miss the old days... Most of June, July and August!!!

at this point - I will take any Buffett show I can get to in May or June - it would be great to have him close - but I will never complain about having to travel to see him - going to Wisconsin was the most fun Les and I had traveling to see him!!!!

That might change. Their is a bill working its way through the state legislature to make school start no earlier than 7 days before Labor Day. So maybe end of August. Of course a boarding school doesn't have to follow that rule.

Any news or rumors about the Carolinas dates? After the April dates were announced, the rumor mill slowed...

Damn! That was always the best time to hit Disney for us Northerners because all the local kids went back to school in August and we didn't go back to school until after Labor Day.

Tonight I just need my guitar

I am hearing that the April 13th date in Charlotte is a good one. Sounds like plans are well into the making for all involved. Indoors though is what I am hearing. :(

The 13th would be great...indoors is still better than nothing... :D
I love the new arena in Charlotte, but there is no room for a great tailgate...

Just trying to put some logic to it. Now that the Jazzfest has been confirmed, I would think that Bubba will continue to make his way east.
Dallas 4/28, NOLA 5/5-7, Maybe Tallahassee and/or JAX 5/9-5/11, Tampa 5/13, West Palm 5/18&20. Then its have a nice summer. The Kids'll be out and its a short flight to St. Somewhere! I got inside info on the Continental Drifter which I reeeaaaalllly can't give out

For the last few years he's only been going on the road for 2 weeks at a time. With the five shows out west, then Jazz Fest, that's 3 weekends in a row. I can't see him doing any other shows right after Jazz Fest. I'd say Memorial Day weekend/early June for the next leg of the tour, then the rest of June, all of July and most of August off before he starts up again.
what I really mean . . . I wish you were here

I'd agree, Tallawacki is pretty bad, but he did play there in '02 (I think?). My Sis-in-law was there, I think that Cap'n Tony was in attendance that night. He'd really be better off playing P'cola, close to home and a new.....OMG! I think the Civic center is over 20 years old now! I remember when it was new........I'm getting REALLY OLD!!! :roll: :oops: :lol:

He played Tally in 2001 I think, maybe it was 2002, but I think it was my last year at FSU. I would love for him to come back to Tally, but I am not holding out hope. Maybe he could play at Doak Campbell. :D

Saw him in the early 90's at the Leon CCC. His final encore was an acoustic, solo rendition of "Death Of An Unpopular Poet" which remains one of my best FSU and Buffett memories.
