Best closing or encore song?

Post by Tbdbuckeyeitl »

What is considered to be the best closing or encore song? Does Buffett have any songs that are considered to be a rarity to be played live? I want to hear tin cup chalice but have never heard it live in concert. Thanks.

Jimmy closed this past Tuesday's (5/31/16) show in Alabama with Tin Cup Chalice you download an audio recording of this show from the concert trading forum on this site

As for songs that a rare or have been played live there is a discussion thread here on this site with a list of songs Jimmy as recorded on his studio albums but has never played live:

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=94625

There is no real best closing or final encore song per say as Jimmy usually plays an acoustic version of one his ballads as a final encore. Some fans like songs from Jimmy's 1970's Key West era albums while others like songs from newer albums.

I really enjoyed the In My Room -> Tonight I Just Need My Guitar that was a few years ago. I dug it for sure...

I know it's not a Jimmy song, but....

back in 2008 he did an encore in Las Vegas by covering "Wildflowers". That was my favorite encore of all time, and I don't know that he's performed it ever again. He talked about his daughter a bit, and his version of the song is one for the ages. :-)

The two that stand out for me, both in Bristow, VA. We got nautical wheelers after funkhouse9 started a petition. Another one that was pretty special, Jimmy did a medley of Trying to Reason with Hurricane Season and Last Mango in Paris.

I like Lovely Cruise as a final encore.....but "Pacing the Cage" would unhinge me.

It wouldn't mean much to most of the Parrot Head Nation, but when he closed with "Wind Cries Mary" in Seattle (Auburn) on the 2003 Tiki Time Tour, it was pretty special to those of us who had heard a local kid sing it 36 years earlier.

Tin Cup Chalice for me, and I was fortunate enough to hear it at Orange Beach.

Get the "Encores" album. It has tin cup.

(It's kinda cool having been @ two of the shows on the album.)

My favorite encore is Lovely Cruise.

All the ones listed are great encores. For me, it's all about how I'm feeling at the time. The following (in no particular order):

1) Tin Cup Chalice and Nautical Wheelers for when I'm feeling nostalgic (and missing KW).
2) Tonight I Just Need My Guitar for when I'm missing the simple ways things used to be.
3) Last Mango in Paris...when I'm missing Captain Tony.
4) Lovely Cruise when I'm feeling, even thought it's over, everything will be ok. The happy goodbye.
5) Pacing The Cage for when I'm feeling lost and need that compass.
6) When the Coast is Clear for when I'm missing the place that means the most in my heart.

Just my two cents.

Lovely cruise in cincy was great Saturday night. Also, he went to Paris is a great closer.
