Cincinnati Goes Under the Big Top

May 17th, 2010

The circus came to town Monday night as Jimmy and the Reefers moved the Under The Big Top Tour to the Riverbend Music Center in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Notable additions to the set list this time included “Woman Goin’ Crazy on Caroline Street,” “I Will Play for Gumbo,” and “USS Zydecoldsmobile.” “Reggabilly Hill” was tonight’s final encore, dedicated not only to the Gulf Coast but also to Nashville and Haiti.

Technical difficulties prevented the show from being streamed on Ustream. Jimmy’s crew said that the internet at the venue was too poor for streaming.

The Enquirer has a review of the tailgating festivities: “What rain? Parrotheads party on at Jimmy Buffett concert” and also a review of the show: “Jimmy Buffett gives Cincinnati a bow with anniversary concert”

After Hawaii, on to Tahiti and Bora Bora for Buffett

January 15th, 2010

After playing at his restaurant in Hawaii last Friday, Jimmy Buffett traveled to Tahiti and Bora Bora in the French Polynesian islands of the South Pacific.

Jimmy played two benefit shows, one on Thursday and another Saturday, at the legendary sand-floored bar Bloody Mary’s on Bora Bora. The shows raised money to build a playground for a local school.

(This news also answers a question a lot of you had… where was Jimmy at when he filmed the video asking parrotheads to donate to the Haiti relief efforts)
