Buffett Plays to 16,000 in Little Rock

March 2nd, 2012

Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band performed Thursday night in Little Rock, Arkansas, a town they haven’t played in a couple decades.

The Arkansas Times has a review and photos from the show:

It’s good to be Jimmy Buffett. He’s got his own brand of beer, Landshark. His own bar/restaurant chain, Margaritaville. And when he decides to come to come to Verizon Arena he sells out in 90 minutes — the norm wherever he plays. All that wonderfulness with only one hit song to his credit (you know which one).

But from a critical point of view it’s even better for JB — his concerts are a coronation, not an examination of whether or not he’s on his game that night.

Buffett and his extraordinary 12-piece backing band — including Arkie-deluxe Mike Utley, his band leader and keyboard player for 30 years or so — were absolutely the toasts of the town, if not the state, Thursday night as they thrilled 16,161 Parrotheads.
