Re: This one really for you?????

I think that most people who are going to vote have already voted, so I don't think that the set list will change much going forward.

Re: Concert Ending at Camden

I hate to say it, but I see the end is near. He can not sell out like he used to. Tickets are widely available when he hits the stage. He isn't selling out like he used to. Is it that he is charging way too much, or people just do not have the disposable income anymore? No one really knows.... I kn...

Re: Jimmy adds new tour date

Wow! Happy for the folks on the West Coast! Buying the house in Beverly Hills was a tip-off that there might be some Pacific dates.

Re: why no playing in MD

I started out seeing Jimmy at Merriweather Post back in the mid-80s. My first 7 or 8 Buffett shows were there. Here's what I remember, and please challenge this if my memory is wrong. Merriweather is located in a fairly residential area. Residents of Columbia, MD complained about the noise, so a cur...

Re: Billboard Interview On Launch of Margaritaville TV

Thanks for posting this, Tiki. Subscription, advertising, both? I'm not willing to pay much for MargaritavilleTV. I would encourage Buffett's camp to go the advertisement route. It's like newspapers. Most newspapers cannot expect their readers to pay high online subscriptions. For example, I have an...

Link to the print interview and video. Thanks to capnbobby for bringing this to everyone's attention as I rarely visit the main part of the site and usually go straight to the message board.

Re: Deadline Detroit

Great interview. - not touring as much... - favorite song this month is death of an unpopular poet. Possibly play it tonight? - awesome stories. Great post buffettnews! Would be great to hear "Death of an Unpopular Poet." :D I heard it once back in Tallahassee in the mid-90s. Fins Up! Cap'n Bobby

Deadline Detroit

Thanks to the moderators for posting Jimmy's interview with Deadline Detroit. One of the best Buffett interviews I've seen in a long time. The video, by the way, is much more informative than the article. Lots to discuss, but I'll hold off awhile because I don't want to spoil the interview for anyon...

Re: Margaritaville TV

I have genuinely enjoyed MargaritavilleTV so far. Watched the Austin show and the Great Woods show live, enjoying them immensely. There are also some cool behind-the-scene videos on the site. I applaud the fact that, to date, the site has been free to viewers; I think that is a very generous thing t...

Re: Reassurance

It seems like every year we question when Jimmy will stop touring and if "this year is the last year". After listening to the Bethel, NY show and specifically the song After the Goldrush, Jimmy says before the song... "We will see you again, were coming back next year, you gotta believe that." So w...

Re: Musical Mayers

I agree. I thought Jimmy looked like he was having a lot of fun last night. It showed a lot of class staying on for Brendan's song. I prefer seeing Jimmy sing when I pay over $200 for a show but kudos for him doing it. This must be like a dream for Peter. I think it also shows how much Jimmy truly ...

Musical Mayers

One of the things that I admire about Buffett is that, over the last few years, he has mentored younger artists, Ilo, Matt Hoggatt, Mishka, and now Brendan Mayer, Peter's son. One of the enjoyable things, so far, about this tour is watching Brendan and Peter play guitar together. Peter must be very ...

Summertime Blues

My wife and I drove the short distance to Islamorada yesterday, and had a wonderful Paddleboarding experience off Indian Key, paddling over coral and seeing a group of three huge--4 to 5 foot--tarpons. When we got home last night, I watched the Great Woods show on Margaritaville TV. It was interesti...

Re: 07.17.2014 - Bethel, NY

I can't wrap my head around the number of covers he's doing. It's almost like he's bored with his own songs. If he's bored, why wouldn't we be?

Re: 07.17.2014 - Bethel, NY

Larry's not the only one fuming. The number of cover songs that Jimmy is doing is unreal. Go to a Buffett show, what don't you hear: Jimmy Buffett songs. Something isn't right. I watched the show on Margaritaville TV, and there were a lot of empty seats.

Re: Coral Reefer E-Cigs & Paraphernalia?

Okay.... call me an eternal optimist, but... When I heard about Jimmy trying to trademark "Coral Reefer" I didn't think it necessarily meant he was going to produce e-cigs and such. My guess was he simply needed to get control of that phrase/title before somebody else DID take it to produce some ty...
