Margaritaville in Jacksonville on Tuesday Night

February 1st, 2012

The 2012 Welcome to Fin Land Tour came to northern Florida Tuesday night as Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band played a show at Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville.

The Florida-Times Union has a review of the show:

While much of rock music is about searching — for love or that perfect place — Buffett has found paradise and wants to share it with all of his fans. Buffett made a career selling an attitude as much as he did selling records.
His show was two hours of fun. His nine-piece band plus two back up singers provided a wave of sound on which Buffett, dressed in an A1A T-shirt and board shorts, easily rode. No stranger to these parts in his youth, Buffett sprinkled in regional references throughout the show making sure to mention the Tradewinds Lounge in St. Augustine where he performed before becoming a star. After “Grapefruit — Juicy Fruit” he even struck the Tebow pose saying, “Tim’s a Parrot Head. I’m the devil in his life.”
