Buffett performs in Mansfield MA

Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band continued their 2014 This One’s For You Tour on Saturday night at the Xfinity Center in Mansfield MA.

The set list from the show is now available. Some changes to the set list included “Knees Of My Heart”, “Scarlet Begonias”, and
“Something To Say” (featuring Brendan Mayer).

The Boston Globe has a review of Saturday’s show: “Parrotheads, Jimmy Buffett party down

As happened with the moptops, fans don’t seem to come to a Buffett concert for the music so much as for the ritual. Saturday at the Xfinity Center, there was tailgating, beachball-thwacking and head-fin tilting. Oh, and there were some songs, too.

Being somewhat incidental to his own happening should be old hat by now to Buffett, but if the man is bemused by what unfolds before him as he sings his songs of coastal leisure, he never showed it. Despite being the nominal ringmaster, he essentially let the audience run its own circus. Everything about Buffett himself was unassuming, from his voice to his casual beachwear to his jokes, which includes such eyeroll-worthy dadisms as naming a nonexistent Maine volcano “Mt. Lobsteramus.”

The Cleveland Plain Dealer has a review of Tuesdays show: “Jimmy Buffett keeps a soggy Blossom Music Center crowd awash in happy sounds

Jimmy Buffett, who first sold out Blossom Music Center 23 years ago and came within a rainstorm of doing so Tuesday night, will never be a torch singer. But that doesn’t mean he isn’t passing one.

Or more accurately, helping in the passing of one. Or a few thousand.

The 19,000-plus who packed the soggy venue in Cuyahoga Falls featured the expected number of shall-we-say-VETERAN Parrotheads, whose natural feathers tended toward gray.

Buffett performs at Coyote Drive-in

Jimmy Buffett performed at the Coyote Drive-in in Ft. Worth, Texas on Thursday night, and the show was simulcast at 87 drive-ins around the country. The set list from the show is now available.

From The Akron Beacon Journal: “Buffett fans rock out in drive-ins

Singer/songwriter/master marketer Jimmy Buffett has built a near half-billion dollar empire selling a philosophy and lifestyle primarily to boomers and increasingly their kids.

For 30-plus years, the 67-year-old and his Coral Reefer Band have toured the country with fans in tow, transforming America’s amphitheater parking lots into temporary Margaritavilles, named for his most famous — and his only for most non-Parrotheads — hit song.

But on Thursday night, Buffett, whose entire life resembles a really long, awesome dream, got to live out yet another dream. He performed a concert at the Coyote Drive-in in Panther Island, Ft. Worth, Texas and at the same time on screens at 87 drive-ins around the country, using a complicated technological process he described during the show as being beamed “from Ft. Worth to space and beyond.”

Buffett’s new Beverly Hills home

From Pursuitist.com: “See inside Jimmy Buffett’s new $8.25 million Beverly Hills home

When you think of Jimmy Buffett you think of Florida, the Caribbean, beaches and Hawaiian shirts. But the “Margaritaville” songwriter recently dropped $8.25 million for a sprawling, open estate in Beverly Hills.

Buffet’s new home was originally built in 1963, and was completely renovated by the previous owner. The home sports over 4,300 square feet of living space, four bedrooms and five bathrooms. The floor plan is open allowing flow from the living room, family room, kitchen and dining and outdoors for entertaining. Walls of glass throughout only enhance the home’s open feeling. There’s also a chef’s kitchen and office.

Outside, there’s a salt water pool and spa, a patio and bar.
