Jimmy Buffett Charts 2009 Summer Tour Dates
Outside it might be cold, but the Parrotheads are making summer plans no doubt now that the full itinerary for Jimmy Buffett’s “2009 Summerzcool Tour” has been revealed.
The outing will be getting an early start. Later this month two shows will be performed in Hawaii. Then Buffett along with the Coral Reefer Band will be performing over 30 shows all across the US, starting in mid April and running through late November. Two night stands have been booked for Bristow, VA; Bridgeview, IL; Mansfield, MA; and Camden, NJ; along with three gigs in Las Vegas from May through October. There will also be a Toronto stop on the tour which wraps up at Madison Square Garden in New York City on November 24.
The latest road outing for Buffet was his “Year of Still Here Tour,” that ran last year from April through October.
Buffett continues supporting “Take the Weather With You, his latest studio album released in 2006. The country leaning set became Buffett’s second No. 1 debut in a row on the Top Country Albums chart of Billboard. The album was followed by two lives sets: “Live at Texas Stadium” and “Live in Anguilla,” a three disc DVD/CD set.
Last summer Buffett released “Scenes You Know By Heart” as well. It was a DVD capturing live performances from songs appearing on his multi-platinum set from 1985 “Songs You Know by Heart.” Two bonus cuts are included on the DVD” “It’s 5 O’Clock Somewhere,” which was nominated for a Grammy, and “Hey Good Lookin.”
According to several reports, Buffett later this year plans on releasing a CD of living acoustic music of songs that he performs traditionally as his final encore at the end of his shows.
