Two Articles On The St. Louis Show

April 25th, 2008

Both the Riverfront Times and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch covered the Buffett show in St. Louis Thursday night:

Riverfront Times – “Parrotheads In The Parking Lot”
St. Louis Post-Dispatch – “Jimmy Buffett Concert Review”

Here’s a snipit from the Post-Dispatch article:

In many ways, Jimmy Buffett’s show Thursday night was typical, from the costumed, party-primed, Parrothead crowd to Buffett’s spirited performance of must-play favorites to the contributions of his magnificent, veteran Coral Reefer Band.

But something has happened in the eight years since the mayor of “Margaritaville” — now, unbelievably, 61 years old — last played St. Louis: He seems to have reconnected with the romantic core of his music.

Irony and a kind of nudge-nudge-wink-wink edge has often hovered over Buffett’s music in concert. But this time, a straightforward, emotional honesty had more than a toehold, especially during a sequence that came late in his “Year of Still Here” show at sold-out Verizon Wireless Amphitheater.

Be sure to check out the slideshow in the Riverfront Times article.
