Buffett performs in Houston

Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band continued the 2014 This One’s For You Tour last night at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in Houston TX. The set list from the show is now available.

The Houston Press has review “Jimmy Buffett at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion

When I grow up, I want to be Jimmy Buffett.

Dude has everything. At 67, he runs around in bermuda shorts and worn old T-shirts, singing about the lives of sailors and beach bums while his adoring fans known as “Parrotheads” flock to his concerts in droves. They even coordinate their shark-themed dance moves to his music, and down Landsharks while doing so. It has got to be an awesome life.

At least it sure seemed to be last night at Cynthia Woods, when Buffett took the stage on the Houston stop of his annual tour. Surrounded by Hawaiian shirts and bouncing beach balls, he was as one has come to expect: all smiles, and all hits.

If Thursday night is any indicator, there’s no doubt in my mind that this Buffett/Coral Reefers madness is going to slow down anytime soon. They’re all aging, yes — Buffett included, but those hardcore Parrothead fools will be out there tailgating in their walkers in a couple of decades, reminiscing over their cheeseburgers and daiquiris in paradise, and Buffett will be around to lead the way. It seems salty air, and salty songs, will do wonders for the soul.
