The Mercury News has a review of the show: “Jimmy Buffett delivers fun Fillmore show”

It was certainly the top ticket of the season for Parrothead Nation, aka, the group of devoted fans who like nothing better than to dress up in wild garb, toss back a few margaritas and go see Buffett in concert. It’s a sizable contingent, enough to fill up all the arenas and amphitheaters, from coast to coast, where the 65-year-old troubadour usually performs.

Yet, he wasn’t playing a 20,000-capacity place like Mountain View’s Shoreline Amphitheatre (Buffett’s usual stamping ground in the Bay Area) this time around. He was performing before roughly 1,000 fans, who were lucky enough to score tickets to the sold-out show.

These fans certainly knew that it was a rare opportunity and thus acted like they’d just been handed winning lottery tickets. They showered Buffett with raucous applause and cheers throughout his two-hour-plus show.

Although he was performing in an intimate setting, Buffett didn’t cheat the crowd. Instead, the singer-songwriter-guitarist and his 10-piece Coral Reefer Band delivered their regular arena-sized production — and it was thrilling to witness that kind of firepower in such relatively cozy confines.
