Charleston Rocked for First Time in a Decade

February 3rd, 2012

It had been over a decade since Jimmy Buffett performed in Charleston, but the wait was well worth it as he played a high-energy show that included a couple rare gems.

“Honey Do” was last played January 16, 2010 in Bora Bora and “Prince of Tides” was last played February 5, 2003 in Columbia, SC.

The Margarillas posted the actual set list, noting that “Tin Cup Chalice” was originally planned as the final encore but Jimmy switched it to “He Went to Paris.”

The Charleston Post & Courier has a photo gallery and review of the show:

Unseasonably warm weather made it all the easier for fans to tailgate Thursday in the coliseum’s parking lot, which was awash in rainbow of Hawaiian shirts and tropical drinks. Once inside, the crowd was an impressive variety of demographics: everyone from baby boomers who, like Buffett, now qualify for retirement (Buffett turned 65 Christmas Day), to those folk’s grandchildren, and every age in between. Apparently when it comes to enjoying a “Cheeseburger in Paradise” or discussing the finer points of a pencil-thin mustache, age knows no bounds.

Given the warm reception that he received, it might not take another 15 years for Buffett to return as a performer.

Buffett plays Orlando on Saturday before taking a three weeks off. See the full tour schedule and get your tickets here.
