Buffett ends Hawaii run with show in Honolulu

March 1st, 2009

Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band played their last show in Hawaii for the tour on Saturday night at the The Shell in Honolulu, Hawaii. The show did not air on Radio Margaritaville, but was recorded and should be replayed at a later date.

The 26-song set was similar to the first two set lists in Hawaii but this time “Stars on the Water” replaced “I Will Play for Gumbo” and “Lover of Mine” moved up into the main set between “Southern Cross” and “Margaritaville.” The biggest surprise of the night came during the second set as Jimmy premiered another new song, “I Feel Like Goin’ Surfing in a Hurricane.”

Buffett and the band will be off until April 16 when the Summerzcool tour starts in Atlanta. There’s still time to Get your Tickets for the first show of the tour!

Jimmy Buffett’s At The Beachcomber to Open Early 2009

October 24th, 2008

BuffettWorld reported back in February that Jimmy Buffett plans to open Jimmy Buffett’s At The Beachcomber at the Ohana Waikiki Beachcomber in Waikiki, Hawaii. The original plan was to open by the end of the year, but now the opening date is slated for early 2009:

It’s taking $15 million to build out 22,000 square feet for the new 400-seat Jimmy Buffett’s at the Beachcomber. And it will be every bit an adventure in paradise.

Simulated sunsets and rolling surf. The Hot Spot Bar where action will surely be volcanic. Ocean Waves Dining Booths for the North Shore vibe. You’ll enjoy music from up-and-coming local talent and food that’s not too complicated but full of flavor: fresh seafood, juicy burgers and casual island favorites. Cocktails will find tropical inspiration, too, with boat drinks, ice-cold brews and of course, signature margaritas.

Jimmy Buffett’s at the Beachcomber opens in early 2009.
