Buffett Rocks the Garden

June 12th, 2008

“Hello New York!” welcomed the crowd to the next stop of the Year Of Still Here Tour in New York City.

Returning to New York City for the third straight year, the first set featured a couple of big changes. “USS Zydecoldsmobile,” a duet with Sonny Landreth, took the third spot, bouncing “Fruitcakes” out of the set for the first time all year. The other change saw “We’re Still Here” return in the fifth spot, also knocking out “Miss You So Badly” for the first time all year.

The only change in the second set was Nadirah’s “Makin’ Music for Money” moving back up to the fourteenth spot. Nothing replaced it later on in the set, leaving the second set unusually short.

The First Encore remained rock steady, but after Jimmy finished “Rainy Day Woman #12 and 35,” he called the band back for one more song. “We’re calling an audible here” Jimmy joked before deciding on “Glory Days” to extend the First Encore. This was the first appearance of “Glory” since Houston earlier this year. The second encore was again different, this time with a solo acoustic performance of “Lovely Cruise,” making its first appearance since October 4, 2007 in Honolulu. “See You at Jones Beach!”
