Buffett Returns to Cincy

July 18th, 2008

The 2008 Year Of Still Here Tour was back on again Thursday night as Jimmy opened the third leg of the tour with a show in Cincinnati.

Returning to Cincinnati for the 24th straight year, the set changes started quick, with “Coconut Telegraph” popping up in the second slot. The next change followed that with the Harry Belafonte classic “Jamaica Farewell” making a return to the set list for the first time since August 19, 1990 in Saratoga Springs, NY. Who could have expected that? But Jimmy wasn’t done yet, as popping up in the 10th spot was “Take Another Road,” it’s first outing since February 20, 2001 in Charlotte, NC.

The second set continued the changes with Mac contributing “The Ass and The Hole” for the first time at a Buffett show since July 22, 1999 in Chicago. Another change was a strange one with “What If The Hokey Pokey Is All It Really Is About?” returning for the first time since October 5, 2002 in Irvine, CA.

The First Encore was the same as most of the tour with “Fins” and “Rainy Day Women #12 and 35” staying put. The second encore, which has brought some surprises this year, surprised again with a solo acoustic performance of the John Prine classic “Paradise,” only played once before in Cincinnati on June 18, 2002.
