Fin Land Comes to Orlando

February 5th, 2012

The 2012 Welcome to Fin Land Tour made its way to Orlando, Florida on Saturday night as Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band performed at the Amway Center.

The Orlando Sentinel has a review of the show:

In a rowdy (if predictably so), 2- hours-plus on Saturday at a packed Amway Center, Buffett effortlessly delivered the laid-back vibe that he has managed to turn into a worldwide brand.

On a stage that was as low-key as the guy’s attitude, Buffett and his 10-piece Coral Reefer Band performed in front of a couple of giant beach umbrellas, a wooden fence and not much else aside from a giant video screen to show oceanfront views and other images.

“It was a lovely day in Orlando today,” Buffett told the crowd, in the midst of an opening salvo that included “The Wino and I Know,” “License to Chill” and the party anthem “It’s 5 o’clock Somewhere.” The latter featured singer-guitarist Mac McAnally, one of the formidable talents in the band, as a capable substitute for original duet partner Alan Jackson.

Buffett takes a three week break before hitting the road again on February 25th in Birmingham, Alabama. He’ll then hit Tallahassee, Little Rock, and Louisville. See the full tour schedule and buy tickets here.
