Buffett Performs in Denver

Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band resumed their “Songs From St. Somewhere” tour Tuesday night at the Pepsi Arena in Denver CO. The set list from the show is now available.

For the final encore Jimmy performed the song “A Mile High In Denver” (from the album “Down To Earth”) for the first time live.

The Denver Post has a review of the show and some photos “Jimmy Buffett at the Pepsi Center, 10-22-13“.

“Just remember, you all are standing on ice,” said the 66-year-old Buffett, who delivered his songs about sunshine and sailing while barefoot. No shoes, no socks, no problem. Named after his 2013 album, “Songs from St. Somewhere,” this Buffett stop at Denver’s Pepsi Center showcased much of his latest material. On the new single from the record, “Too Drunk to Karaoke,” Buffett was joined by longtime session musician Mac McAnally, who filled in Toby Keith’s role on the track. McAnally also supplied vocals on other Buffett tracks from the 2000s, singing Alan Jackson’s part on “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere.”

Though the crowd was filled with Hawaiian t-shirts and flip-flops, there was a distantly Colorado feel to the night. A 20-foot screen flashed photos of Colorado destination spots and the Denver skyline as the concert came to a close with a cover of Lionel Richis’s “All Night Long (All Night).” To top off a night of Colorado at the beach, Buffett added a special second encore with “A Mile High in Denver” off “Down To Earth” (1970). He said he had never performed the song live, but prepared it special to play for the Colorado audience.
