Red Rocks - note to Jimmy Buffett

Post by tpspuck »

Jimmy - Thank you for letting the Frisco audience know that you saw the banner. When you said "soon to come and I promise", the Colorado Parrot Head Nation hit a new level of feeding frenzy! We hope you received the shirt and envelope we tossed (you security guy got it). Come to Colorado and Party with a Purpose!

My guess is that the only reason why he does not play it is because of seating capacity. At only 9,500 it really isn't big enough for Jimmy to play a normal show at.
Did you hear the one about me being a punk?
Did you hear the one about me being a drunk?
Did you hear the one about me losing my nerve?
Or how I'm just another f**** sheep in the herd?
Did you hear the one about me giving a s***?
Cause if I ever did I don't remember it.

I don't think its the seating, as he played Chastain Park Amphitheater in ATL, which is AWFUL for tailgating as its sort of in a neighborhood. But I digress... Chastain Park Amphitheater only seats approximately 6,900.

So yes Jimmy, PLEASE PLAY RED ROCKS!!

Great banner! I hope it happens!

I don't think size matters either... the Wharf in Orange Beach was only 10K or so.

We have people taking the banner to most of the remaining shows this tour (including Paris). Jimmy looked right at us and said he promised. Also he spoke about the banner on the Bing and Bong show the following two stops. Lets hope that Red Rocks is part of next years tour.

The Banner is on it's way to Alpine Valley this weekend. Hopefully Mike Utley will again bring it up to Jimmy on the Bing and Bong show. We have a fitting plan for the banner at the end of the tour - Details and hopefully pictures of what happens in November!

The banner flew at Alpine Valley on Saturday - Next stops, Paris and New Mexico. Then to MOTM - Big Pland for the banner....

Jimmy - Please make this happen!

The banner made it to Paris via our good friends Robin and Pete. They proudly held it up from the 2nd row and Jimmy acknowledged it again and told the crowd he has promised to come to Red Rock next year! For good measure, he will see it again in Las Vegas and New Mexico before we gift it to him at MOTM via one of the Coral Reefers! RED ROCKS in 2016!

Our mission with the banner is now complete. It was given to Jimmy by Mac at MOTM. Jimmy responded at the beginning of the concert with a message to us "Red Rocks People". I have posted the audio on the Red Rock Facebook page under visitor comments. Here is a picture of Mac with the Banner. Mac, Peter and Mike Utley all told us the the band is 100% behind the Red Rocks effort, and that Jimmy is truly working on this. Mac's words to us were, "Your message has been delivered to the right guy". Hopefully Jimmy and Red Rocks will be able to find the "series of date" (the key words is Series") that Jimmy wants.

Yes that was us. We actually had a 3rd. but Mac took it and gave it to Jimmy right before the show.

Jimmy made the announcement right at the beginning of the Key West show.
