Buffett mentioned in review of Aerosmith concert

An article in today’s Boston Globe regarding last night’s Aerosmith concert “A fiery Tyler ignites Aerosmith” mentions the only other act to set up a lawn stage was Jimmy Buffett. Here’s a clip of the article…

As the lawn fans went bonkers, the band crowded around Tyler as though this were a club show. Some of the fans in the lower pavilion, those who paid $75 a ticket, were stewing as they looked at Tyler’s back from afar (OK, they could still see him projected on the main-stage video screen). Such is life for a populist band that tries to please everyone. And if memory serves, the only other act to play on the lawn at Tweeter was Jimmy Buffett a few years ago. Another devoted populist.

Charity Concert

From kwd: It looks like Jimmy will be doing a charity concert for one of the Miami Heat players July 13th, plus I hear a PHundraising golf tournament to boot (? date). I didn’t hear the actual radio announcement today but the rumor that this was going down had been around for about a week now & this confirmed it.
