Buffett Plays St. Louis

April 25th, 2008

“Well Well Well, Hello St. Louis, How ya doin?” and with that stop number two on the Year Of Still Here Tour started off in where else, St Louis.

For the first time since July 18th, 2000, Jimmy was back. The first set kicked off the same 3 songs as Houston, then came our first change. “Pencil Thin Mustache” returned in slot #4, its first band performance since last October in Las Vegas. Other first set changes included the long-lost classic “Cowboy in the Jungle” returning to the set list, its first band performance since February 19, 1998 in New York.

Other treats in the first set included “Creola,” performed by Nadirah and “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” with special guest Jake Shimabukuro tearing it up with help from Robert Greenidge.

But all of the fun was not just in the first set. The second set started with the return of the classic “Why Don’t We Get Drunk,” performed solo so Jimmy could test the woman doing sign language. Other highlights from the second set included Nadirah’s wonderful version of “Makin’ Music for Money”; “School Boy Heart”; and “Far Side of the World”.

The first encore again featured “Fins” but this time it was followed by the Bob Dylan classic “Rainy Day Women #12 and 35,” while the second encore brought the first on-tour outing of “Defying Gravity” since the second Foxoborugh show to wrap things up.
