Buffett Plays First of Four Shows in Delray Beach

May 14th, 2021

Jimmy Buffett made his return to live shows on Thursday night with a concert at the Old School Square in Delray Beach, Florida.

The South Florida Sun Sentinel has a review of the show: “Remember fun? Jimmy Buffett’s opening-night concert in Delray Beach offers plenty of reminders”

In a 100-minute, 21-song set leavened by gratitude, Key West stories and tequila, Buffett played benevolent tour guide to nearly 900 pod-enclosed Parrotheads eager to take the trip they clearly spent time dressing for.

“Hopefully, we’re on the other side of this. For the first time in human history, fun was stopped. We’re back,” he said.

To double-down on his good-times-ahead attitude, Buffett confirmed that plans for a “full tour” are in the works.

“I’m hearing August, but we’ll keep you posted,” he said through a wave of applause.

Arriving onstage around 8:30 p.m., to a standing ovation that never fully disappeared, Buffett and the “fully vaccinated old farts” in the Coral Reefer Band hit the ground running with fan favorite “Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes,” the luscious steel-drum intro from Robert Greenidge flowing over the crowd in a warm wave.
