Band Intros:
Fully recovered, Miss Tina Gullickson on vocals right there, looking good. Tina got a little sick last week, but she's looking good now, isn't she. It's that medical marijuana, isn't it? That's what. I just heard, that's all I know, I know nothing. Miss Nadirah Shakoor on vocals. Hey, they don't call it the Coral Reefer Band for nothing. Speaking of that, Ralph MacDonald on percussion. Peter Mayer on guitar. Mr Mac McAnally on guitar. Swinging Roger Guth on the drums back there, holding us together. From Truth or Consequences, New Mexico, Doyal Grisham on the pedal steel guitar right there. Mr Jim Mayer on the bass. Always a pleasure to have him whenever we can, from Honolulu, Hawaii, Mr Jake Shimabukuro on ukulele. And the best 9-fingered piano player I've ever heard, Michael Utley on keyboards. And again always a pleasure from Little Feat, Mr Bill Payne on the keyboards. The employee of the week, John Lovell on trumpet right there. You can hear John's unfinished solos up on Margaritaville.com, the ones that don't make the shows. And last but not least, the great Mr Robert Greenidge on the steel drums right there. And most of all, thank you for 40 years of a summer job I couldn't believe I got!

25 Another Saturday Night
26 Glory Days (this will have to hold you until Bruce gets here)
WOW!
What a set list!!!!
Hope we get one that great next week :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
and Billy Payne too 8)

Well yeah! Lots of competent people out there can do this. Though it has a lot to do with pacing! :wink: :lol: :lol:

Jimmy wore a green t-shirt and yellow pants. The shirt said Viva Las Vegas on it.

We were pretty far back, but that flag was definitely the NV flag. Googled for it and compared to zoomed in on my original, yep that's it!

Y'all know what song this one is I'm sure.

Also, I recorded the custom video parts during CILCIA. Good stuff! :wink: :lol: :lol: :lol:

They're not letting me ftp outta here so I'll have to wait until I get home for that.

My favorite part of the concert was the acoustic version of One Particular Harbour.

I also enjoyed the crowd reaction to Elvis Presley Blues. The reaction has changed a lot in the last year.

Everybody's on the Phone was especially fun!

Super CROWD!! The Garden Arena is a special venue.

Great pictures!! When you told Pharmboy last night Jimmy had on a green t-shirt I thought it was the turquoise one he likes with the yellow shorts ... also, Tina and Nadirah wore the same outfits to the first Foxboro show. :lol: :lol: :lol:

so i pulled into my driveway at 1 am this morning.....14.5 hours of driving back up to missoula all nice and hungover. what a show though....loved all of it, maybe not glory days as much, but everything else was great. a friend came with me wo had never been, we went the street party and he was floored by the amount of people not only going to the show, but dressing up as pirates, parrots, etc. and all getting drunk(for the most part) :D :D all i could do was laugh. anyway thanks to JB for a drive and money well spent, i do it again next weekend, but james taylor is coming to town, instead of a 13+ hour drive its only a 10 minute walk :P hope everyone who went to vegas survived :D

for people going next week looking to drink, bring your own booze or play penny slots while getting free drinks, for me buying a 7 dollar vodka tonic was a little too much, but losing a dollar at the slots and tipping the cocktail waitress a dollar for a long island iced tea seemed like a good deal....just my viewpoint :o
If I had it all to do over again, I'd just get myself drunk and I'd jump right back in...

After reading through the setlist, I noticed the comments about the first few songs being really slow. The crowd really really got going on Elvis Presley Blues, but were up standing the whole time, still throwing hundred of beach balls during those first songs.

Jimmy smiled HUGELY from the moment he came out on stage and was very "in tune" with the band from the get go. He commented how things had changed from when he first came to VEGAS when 8 people dressed in their costumes, but a large majority of folks DRESSED for this show. They stood out in the casinos and restaurants all around VEGAS. There was even a guy on the monorail who was wearing a BEER BARREL. Don't know if they ever rolled him to the very first row.

Jimmy stood amazed watching the videos during CILCIA. (Tracy got her own Birthday Greeting during that one. You can hear Jimmy and the crowd react!!)

There was an 8-yr old girl dressed in grass skirt and little parrot on her head, sitting in front of us with her parents and she was having a ball hitting beach balls ( :lol: :lol: ) and dancing around. I thought it was a little young for Vegas and she did wear down and sleep in her chair before the show was over. Didn't see her parents cover her eyes during CILCIA. :lol: :lol:

And, yes, LIPH, Jimmy does say "getting close" after "if it suddenly ended tomorrow." :o :o :cry:

They played the video during Bama Breeze, and there were lots of raising of beers and cheering, but it was bitter sweet seeing the end of that video, knowing that BAMA BREEZE is gone. Seeing those bridges washed out across the bay always bring a tear to my eyes.

The crowd was worked into a frenzy the whole first half. That makes it sound like a ball game, but everybody was playing on the same team for sure.

Being inside the lighting definitely added to the music. Panning the crowd with lights and putting it on the big screen just seemed to make everyone dance and sing more.

Tina and Nadirah were really on with the dancing. It was hard to believe that Tina had been sick and had to miss a show just the past Thursday at the Fillmore. What energy those girls add.

This was definitely a standing, singing, dancing crowd. There was never a down time the whole show. Maybe when Jake played through the intermission, most folks sat. But were quickly on their feet for an ovation.

I had forgotten how speical Jollymon was with Jake and Robert backing Jimmy, but was overwhelmed by the two of them on Gently Weeps. Lots of people started leaving for intermission eventhough there wasn't one. I can't wait for the Anguilla DVD to get the version of Jake and Robert and the strings and Ralph on One Particular Harbour. (They did it this way for the Fillmore and Hawaii shows too.)

What a special way for Jimmy to return to the stage and then bring back the whole band gradually. Simply beautiful. That must be how he started the Hawaii show.
(It prompted me to go back and read about Corb Donohue who died after the Hawaii show. http://www.variety.com/article/VR111797 ... id=16&cs=1)

I hope Parrotkey does not mind me linking to a post there.

It's always so nice to get fresh arrangements of songs and make connections to people who helped Jimmy in this crazy music business, and I'm off on tangents. :)

NICE recap!
I have to concur that the energy/spirit of the crowd was AMAZING......
I was hoping for a "Desperation Samba" solo w/Peter and Jake......but was completely and utterly satisfied with the "Gently Weeps" piece with Jake and Robert......literally moved to tears.....
