Bama Breeze Tour rolls into Canada

September 5th, 2007

Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band took their Bama Breeze Tour up north on Wednesday night for a show from the Molson Amphitheatre in Toronto, Canada.

The Radio Margaritaville connection was weak, and halfway through the show the feed was dropped completely. However, thanks to our members BlueMountainBear, Andrew, and Heather, BuffettWorld has the complete set list available here. And as always, Bamafan’s show notes are also available with the set list.

Notable songs from the set list included “We Are The People Our Parents Warned Us About,” the Neil Young cover “Heart of Gold,” and the finale “Early Morning Rain,” a Gordon Lightfoot cover.

Did you attend the show? Post your experience and comments on our Discussion Board.

The tour continues on Saturday night with the second show from Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts.

Update – The Toronto Sun has a review of the show – “Jimmy Buffett breezes into town”

The Toronto Star interviews Buffett

September 1st, 2007

The Toronto Star has a great interview with Buffett: “The complicated uncomplicated life of Jimmy Buffett”

I didn’t get spoiled by success,” he chuckled. “I loved the beach too much, I worked in a bar, I did some busking … finally I was lucky to find something in Key West that turned it around.”

The thing he found was “Margaritaville,” the song to which Buffett’s name will forever be linked, the “what-me-worry?” plaint of a loser bathing his wounds in alcohol and the bucolic haze of a sun-drenched paradise.

“I wrote that song in six minutes,” he said, marvelling at its lasting cultural effects. “But I’m not the first person to sell escapism, and I had no idea that it would start something as big as the Parrothead movement.”
