Billboard has an article on Buffett’s Live at Wrigley DVD which comes out August 1st.

Less than a year after releasing the CD/DVD “Live at Fenway Park,” Jimmy Buffett will release a two-DVD set chronicling a stop at baseball’s other pre-eminent shrine: Chicago’s Wrigley Field. “Live at Wrigley Field” will arrive Aug. 1 via Buffett’s own Mailboat label.

The DVDs will contain 26 songs from Buffett’s two-day doubleheader at the 92-year-old home of the Cubs, culled from two September 2005 shows. The set includes covers of Bruce Springsteen’s “Glory Days” and Steve Goodman’s “City of New Orleans,” performed by Buffett and guitarist Mac McAnally from the bleachers, as well as ukelele virtuoso Jake Shimabakuro’s pre-show version of the national anthem.

Also included are backstage extras, footage of construction of the centerfield stage and a handful of bonus features. The release marks the first time a full-length Buffett concert has been available on DVD.

Update: Although not mentioned in track listings, Buffett’s performance of “Glory Days” will be included on Live at Wrigley Field as a bonus cut.

The Galveston County Daily News has an article on Buffett being the winner when residents were asked “If Galveston were a famous person, who would it be, and why?”

Topping the list of responses was — drum roll, please — Jimmy Buffett, the laid-back singer who has made a fortune selling CDs to his legion of baby boomer fans known as Parrotheads, singing oddball ditties about drinking, hamburgers and hanging around the beach.

Bids for Buffett plates rolling

The Augusta Chronicle has an article on the South Carolina Parrothead License Plates:

Jimmy Buffett fans have months to wait until South Carolina’s Parrothead license plates are available. But through Saturday, the rights to the first 10 are being auctioned. The high bid for license plate “JB 1″ – aka, the No. 1 Jimmy Buffett fan – is $1,000. Other plates range from $50 to $175.

The plates themselves are still being designed. A representative from Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville company has drawn three designs, which are still being tweaked. After a final design is chosen, there must be 400 orders for the license plates for the Department of Motor Vehicles to produce them.

“I think the first 350 are going to go like hotcakes,” said Venning Morrison, the president of the Palmetto Parrothead Club. “And then we might actually have to advertise.”

To place a bid, visit www.scphlp.org.

The auction ends at 8 p.m. Saturday.
