Don't laugh - he has played Portland, Maine but it was 1987 - I think.
Before he became so big. Wish i had seen it - I doubt he'll ever play Maine again. I did see him play in Portland, Oregon 3 or 4 years ago.

of course you remember that during that show, jimmy said he was having a boat built in the area. therefore he would be around a little more than usual. maybe he meant he would be checking on the progress of the boat often, but not necessarly actually do another show. but since he has almost dedicated this year to the east coast, maybe next year he will focus on the west coast and make portland the place to be for a weekend.

The two cities are a lot a like but the beer is better in Portland. The right coast Portland that is. Jimmy could play the ballpark and they could put in field seats. But then the scalpers would get most of the tickets so I wouldn't be able to go. :(

When Jimmy is only playing about 25-30 shows per year, unfortunately some cities get left off.

Doesn't help when he plays 2 shows in 1 city.

2 in Foxborop
2 in Las Vegas (Vegas baby!)
2 in Tampa Bay

Cuts into other cities...and for some strange reason I keep "hoping/cheering for" Boise!! (I cannot understand why I am rooting for Boise...I live nowhere near there but I still am - must be some kind of "mind control"). :)
Toronto (x7)
Las Vegas (x3)
Tampa Bay (x2)
Orlando (x2)
New York (x1)
New Orleans (x1)

Jimmy Buffett just played @ Mohegan Sun & Foxwood the first of this month. (I wasn't able to make either show but I think It's as close as we'll get him to to Maine! ): I thought perhaps Gillette Stadium wasn't the atmosphere for Buffett...lol :)

I agree...He hasn't come up to the Pacific Northwest now for a few years. I have been to a Vegas show a couple of years ago since he came to Vancouver WA. Im not too pleased.

The Gorge Amphitheatre

This has been voted the best major outdoor concert venue in North America by the readers of Pollstar magazine 9 times! Located in George Washington, The Gorge is an outdoor music venue located near the Columbia River in Central Washington. The venue features reserved/Golden Circle chair seating near the stage, with General Admission seating on a grassy slope directly behind. The Gorge offers a Season Seat and a Box Seat VIP program as well.

This venue is located approx (drive time) 31/2 hours from Portland Ore & the same from Seattle Wash, but there is airports closer .. And the weather is a BIG A+..

And I would like to get the chance for some more great photos : )

Well we can only HOPE !!!!

Jimmy spends alot of time near Portland Maine . . . I know he eats in Kittey and hops down through New Hampshire to the Northe Shore of Mass where he fishes out in Plum Island . . .


or are talking about the less exciting Western Portland? :wink:
the hit and run is as good as any religion around this time of year . . .

The boat was built at Delta Marine in Seattle as the Defiant and then renamed the Continental Drifter III.
