Thinking 'bout 2008

Post by SouthernSeas »

Been thinking about 2008 recently since Buffett didn't tour through the Carolinas this year. There really isn't any excuse for this...he always has had time for us before. Just got to thinking about possible tour names for next year. Here are my ideas:

The Endless Sunset Tour
Flying Boats and Pirate Ships Tour
LandShark Lager 2008 Tour
Coast To Coast 2008
Cruisin' To Margaritaville Summer Tour 2008
Mermaids and Salty Souls Tour 2008
A Pirate's Life Tour
A Pirate's Lament Tour
Through These Eyes Tour
Stranded on A Sandbar 2008 Tour

One of the ideas I had is that Jimmy do a tour of his Margaritaville Bars. See, he would go around to all his places and perform for a couple of days at each bar. This could be a two month tour during the spring time.

Some song ideas for the tour would be:

Stranded on a Sandbar
Captain and the Kid
The Downeaster Alexa (a Billy Joel cover PERFECT for Jimmy to sing)
Trouble On The Horizon
My Head Hurts, ..Feet Stink, and I Don't Love Jesus
Dixie Diner (with Fingers Taylor)
Who's The Blonde Stanger
Coconut Telegraph
Cliches
Death Of An Unpopular Poet
Door Number Three (with ONLY Fingers and Jimmy doing accoustic)
Migration
p***' In The Wind (dedicate this to Walker)

Plus all the other great hits

Jimmy should also get Fingers back in the band FULL TIME!!
Sunset Beach is my Margaritaville. Where there is endless beach, no time, and sunshine that seems to last forever. I know that Someday I Will.....Someday.

The Parrot Dice Lounge kinda like a mirage. Here today and gone tomorrow. You should stop by and say hello when visiting Chicago on tour.

I think the chance of THAT is about zero to zero. For some reason, he doesn't like us MOTM attendees. ???? :evil:

And it should be called, "The I Ain't Goin' to Nashville or MOTM Tour". :evil:

I, frankly, could give a damn what the tour is called as long as there is one and its announced sooner than later.

Actually, that's not bad.
If you want an experience, go to a Jimmy Buffett concert.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Life is short, live long!!

I'd rather be a wiseass than a dumbass.

How about he does a double-bill with Kenny Chesney: "Jimmy and Kenny Together Tour". I'm sure it would be loved by all 'true' Buffett fans.

How about:

Back to the Beach Tour

Traveler's Tales Tour

Beach Bum Tour

Poets and Pirates Tour (j/k)

Sometimes more than others,
we see who and what and where we are,
I'm just a one man band,
With my feet in the sand,
Tonight I just need my guitar
