Review of Concord Show

May 20th, 2009

The San Jose Mercury News has a review of last night’s Jimmy Buffett show in Concord, California: “Review: Jimmy Buffett in Concord”

Jimmy Buffett sees the big picture. He doesn’t let the little things – details that might drive other artists nuts – get in the way of entertaining an audience.

“There’s a string out of tune on this guitar,” the 62-year-old singer-songwriter said during his concert Tuesday at the Sleep Train Pavilion in Concord. “But it doesn’t matter because we are going to play `Margaritaville.’”

He was right: It really didn’t matter. His loyal fans, affectionately dubbed “Parrotheads,” were going to sing along happily to this song whether the instruments were in tune or not. That may say a little something about the level of intoxication of the crowd, which kept the beer and margarita vendors hopping most of the night, but it really speaks to Buffett’s amazing degree of self-awareness.
