Buffett, Fingers Return to Pine Knob

June 10th, 2008

Tuesday Night, Jimmy brought the Year Of Still Here Tour back to Clarkston, Michigan.

Returning to Clarkston for the first time since 2006, the first set returned to early tour form with “The Tiki Bar is Open” back in the second spot, replacing “License to Chill” after a one show break. There was no “Why Don’t We Get Drunk” tonight, instead Jake Shimabukuro and Robert Greenidge treated fans to a fantastic version of “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.”

The second set saw a few changes as well as “Scarlet Begonias” was played instead of “Bama Breeze.” But the brightest moment of the night came when Jimmy introduced the one and only Greg “Fingers” Taylor as he played his trademark solos on “Son of a Son of a Sailor,” “The City” and of course, “A Pirate Looks at Forty.” “Fingers” had not played with Jimmy since the Bristow, Virginia show last June.

Again the only change in the encores was in the second one, with a solo acoustic performance of the classic “Tin Cup Chalice,” making its first appearance of the tour. It was last played November 3, 2007 in Tampa, Florida which was the last show of that tour.
