Review of Hawaii Show in the Star Bulletin

April 21st, 2005

The Honolulu Star Bulletin has a review of Tuesday night’s show at The Shell in Waikiki.

Jimmy Buffett may act like a simple beach-bum minstrel to Parrothead fans, but the performer proved again Tuesday night at the Waikiki Shell that he’s an unbeatable showman.

Only four other acts in the music business made more money than Buffett ($36.5 million) last year, who, in his “A Salty Piece of Land Tour ” — named after his best-selling novel — performance with the Coral Reefer Band, proved there’s no need to change a thing about his act.

Buffett Buys Manhattan Apartment

April 20th, 2005

From the NY Times:

Beachcombing balladeer Jimmy Buffett has had changes in attitude as well as changes in altitude since he bought a sky-high Manhattan apartment. The Post’s Braden Keil reports the salt-shaking songwriter has shelled out $11.7 million for a 73rd-floor apartment in the Time Warner Center’s south tower.

The four-bedroom condo, with views of Central Park and both rivers, includes 51/2 bathrooms, a maid’s room, library, large gourmet kitchen and former popstar neighbor Ricky Martin a few floors below. Buffett, whose main home is in Palm Beach, also has a summer estate in the Hamptons.
