06/26/2014 – Klipsch Music Center – Indianapolis, IN
06/28/2014 – First Midwest Bank Amphitheater – Chicago, IL

The Cleveland Plain Dealer has a review of Tuesdays show: “Jimmy Buffett keeps a soggy Blossom Music Center crowd awash in happy sounds”
Jimmy Buffett, who first sold out Blossom Music Center 23 years ago and came within a rainstorm of doing so Tuesday night, will never be a torch singer. But that doesn’t mean he isn’t passing one.
Or more accurately, helping in the passing of one. Or a few thousand.
The 19,000-plus who packed the soggy venue in Cuyahoga Falls featured the expected number of shall-we-say-VETERAN Parrotheads, whose natural feathers tended toward gray.
Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band resumed their 2014 This One’s For You Tour last night at the Toyota Stadium in Frisco TX.
The set list from the show is now available. Some changes to the set list included “Sea Of Heartbreak” (last played June 2nd, in Houston, TX) and “Northeast Texas Women” (last played May 22nd, 2010 in Frisco, TX).
Jimmy Buffett performed at the Coyote Drive-in in Ft. Worth, Texas on Thursday night, and the show was simulcast at 87 drive-ins around the country. The set list from the show is now available.
From The Akron Beacon Journal: “Buffett fans rock out in drive-ins”
Singer/songwriter/master marketer Jimmy Buffett has built a near half-billion dollar empire selling a philosophy and lifestyle primarily to boomers and increasingly their kids.
For 30-plus years, the 67-year-old and his Coral Reefer Band have toured the country with fans in tow, transforming America’s amphitheater parking lots into temporary Margaritavilles, named for his most famous — and his only for most non-Parrotheads — hit song.
But on Thursday night, Buffett, whose entire life resembles a really long, awesome dream, got to live out yet another dream. He performed a concert at the Coyote Drive-in in Panther Island, Ft. Worth, Texas and at the same time on screens at 87 drive-ins around the country, using a complicated technological process he described during the show as being beamed “from Ft. Worth to space and beyond.”
From Pursuitist.com: “See inside Jimmy Buffett’s new $8.25 million Beverly Hills home”
When you think of Jimmy Buffett you think of Florida, the Caribbean, beaches and Hawaiian shirts. But the “Margaritaville” songwriter recently dropped $8.25 million for a sprawling, open estate in Beverly Hills.
Buffet’s new home was originally built in 1963, and was completely renovated by the previous owner. The home sports over 4,300 square feet of living space, four bedrooms and five bathrooms. The floor plan is open allowing flow from the living room, family room, kitchen and dining and outdoors for entertaining. Walls of glass throughout only enhance the home’s open feeling. There’s also a chef’s kitchen and office.
Outside, there’s a salt water pool and spa, a patio and bar.
Jimmy Buffett performed on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday night with some of the Coral Reefers and the Roots. Songs included “Volcano”, “Jolly Mon”, and “Margaritaville”.

“A Pirate Looks At Forty” by Chip Bell is now available at Amazon.com.
The murder of a retired United States Senator and his wife seemed like an open and shut case for Jake Sullivan until his prime suspect turned out to be a member of the Mossad, Israel’s elite intelligence agency. Instead, Chip Bell’s fourth novel, A Pirate Looks at Forty, takes Jake on a hunt for the leader of a renegade Israeli army faction intent on changing its’ country’s boundaries. Following a trail that begins with an ancient Hebrew mystic in Medieval Spain and continues with the loss of a sacred relic in the wreck of a Spanish treasure fleet off the Florida coast in 1715, Jake tries to keep South Florida from becoming a war zone that will set the spark to the powder keg that is the Middle East.
