Third Leg of Tour Begins in Jersey

June 18th, 2009

The Summerzcool tour was back rolling tonight as Jimmy and the band began the east coast run with the first show of the third leg of the Summerzcool Tour in Camden, New Jersey.

The set list was the same as the past legs except for “Scarlet Begonias,” a hold over from Bonnaroo, replacing “Coast of Carolina” and the tour premiere of “Nautical Wheelers” to close the show. “Nautical” was last played in February of this year at the special show with Mac McAnally in Key West.

Photos and Review of Buffett at Bonnaroo

June 13th, 2009

Jimmy Buffett performed today at the Bonnaroo Music Festival in Tennesse. He played with Ilo and the Coral Reefer All Stars.

You can view some photos from Buffett’s set here.

Spinner.com has a short review:

In what was billed as “Ilo & and the Coral Reefer Allstars,” none other than the Coral Reefer himself, Jimmy Buffett made a surprise appearance in a show at high noon on Saturday, the third day of Bonnaroo. Truth be told, it wasn’t all that surprising given the rumors of his appearance leading up to it but it was still a treat for Bonnaroo fans to wake up to the sounds of ‘Margaritaville.’

“Well, it may not be the breakfast you’re used to, but we’re going to serve it,” Buffett told the crowd — hardly a traditional Parrothead audience — as he launched into ‘Cheeseburger in Paradise.’ Running through several other classics and covers of the Grateful Dead’s ‘Scarlet Begonias’ and Van Morrison’s ‘Brown Eyed Girl,’ Buffett was mainly here to introduce his new protégé and discovery, Ilo Ferreira, a musician he found in an African cantina while en route to Mali a couple years ago.

On top of that, Buffett told reporters backstage that he wanted to keep track of his kids, who were here to see Phish and enjoy the festival. Speaking of Phish, Buffett fell asleep listening to the jam band’s set on his bus last night to get ready for today’s, um, early performance. “At Bonnaroo,” he told Spinner backstage, “noon feels like eight in the morning.” Top of the day to you, campers.
