Re: Zac Brown Band HERSHEY, PA 6/20/20

Agree. There are just too many covers. They are an amazing band. But I am not going to shell out $400 - $500 bucks, again, to take the family to a show when I know that I am going to walk out before the encores start. Really too bad.

Re: FL December shows canceled?

It is definitely unfortunate for those few people who travel for a show. But my guess is that there are very few people who travel to a Buffett show. Heck, the only people who do it are probably on this web-site. So I hope you don't take is personally. But something is definitely very off. I just lo...

Re: FL December shows canceled?

My guess is that they are trying to work out the money and other details. Tours are often insured. There are probably certain contract provisions that need to be complied with. For example, if the show is cancelled within a certain number of days but re-scheduled then the payout is "X". Leave it to ...

Death of an Unpopular Poet

Does anyone know why this was left out of the song selection for BBB&B? I think it is universally agreed this is one of his best songs. Who the heck thought it should not be included with the box set?

Re: Caroline Jones

I have seen her perform a few times. Last time was with Kenny Chesney. She was not particularly good. I think her voice is too high pitched or it is that she sings in a pitch (octave?) that is a little beyond her reach. I am not quite sure. In concert, we could barely understand/hear her and at time...

Re: Hypothetical Jimmy "Top Ten" Tour Stops

Willie Nelson plays a lot more shows per year but in smaller venues. I also think he has a larger base of fans to draw from. That seems to be why he can last as long as he has. If Jimmy played smaller venues and altered the vibe a little (less drinking-more dope smoking?) I think he could follow a s...

Re: Hypothetical Jimmy "Top Ten" Tour Stops

This thread assumes Jimmy is going to decide to hang it all up one day. It is always possible that the venues he still plays are going to make the decision(s) for him. There are still hundreds of tickets available for every single concert on this tour. You can go to the show on Thursday for $29.00. ...

Buffett As a Performer

Over the past two years my kids and I have seen Taylor Swift, Zac Brown, Kenney Chesney and Mumford & Sons. As well as a variety of opening acts. While each performer was very good, they all had their faults. I have criticized Buffett, mostly for his set lists which I believe cater entirely to the P...

Re: The Beach Bum - Movie

Jimmy and Hollywood do not mix. Plain and simple. His acting sucks, the songs he writes for movies s***, the movies he has been in s***... I know that none of what he does should be taken seriously. After all it is only Hollywood and I am sure he is just having fun. But my God, how many crappy thing...

Re: Buffett Performs National Anthem at NFC Playoff

My wife looked at me and said, "Did Jimmy just drop the mic?" I had to rewind and watch. Luckily, I only had to go back a few seconds and was able to avoid hearing any of the signing. Then I saw it and looked at her and said, "This performance goes into that special box where "Fool Button", "Big Rig...

David McCullough's book on the two of them is a pretty good read. They worked very, very hard and in a cool scientific way.

I can understand people's gripes, but when was the last time any of his shows sold out? When was the last time you could not get a reasonably priced ticket here through the ticket exchange or on Stub-Hub or through some other platform? Years ago, back when he was popular, you had to wait on an actua...

Coral Reefer Cannabis

First off, I have absolutely no problem whatsoever with JB doing a licensing deal using the "Coral Reefer" name. It is about time that Marvin Gardens, Al Vocado and Kitty Litter stepped out of the shadows and into the limelight. It makes complete sense to me and I happy he is doing it. However, I do...

Re: Who’s Going to Jones Beach Aug 2 2018?

I am waiting until tonight or even tomorrow to buy tickets. With the weather I suspect that lots of people will want to dump and there are hundreds of tickets still for sale. BTW - I should know this but don't. What time does the opening act come on and what time does Jimmy take the stage? Thanks,

Agreed. I really enjoyed "Kitchen Confidential." When that book came out, the celebrity chef thing was starting to take off. But there he was writing about drugs, alcohol and the debauchery that often goes on in a restaurant's kitchen. Because of that book I try to avoid restaurants on a Monday, rar...

Re: Escape to Margaritaville

I am sure it costs a pretty penny to bring a production all the way to Broadway. No one works for free. And we all know there is no way Jimmy underwrote all of the expenses (not that he couldn't), so I am sure that there is a group of people who expected more and are getting a lot less. Heck look at...

Re: Escape to Margaritaville

No Tony nominations, last week the show sold only 55.4% of seats and earned only 35.7% of gross potential. I suspect that it will not make it through the summer because with numbers like that, and no "Tony Nominated..." advertising to be had, investors are going to want to pull the plug quickly. shi...

Link above is to an article in yesterday's New York Post. Like I said, just because it is on Broadway does not mean it is a quality show. From other stuff I have read, it may not make it through the summer.
