“Hello Carolina, We’re still here!” started stop number four on the Year Of Still Here Tour in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Returning to the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre (or the Blockbuster Pavilion as it once was known) for the first time in two years, the first set was almost the same as Frisco, the lone difference being the return of “Tryin’ to Reason with Hurricane Season”, not played since opening night in Houston, in the #8 slot.

The second set was similar as well, however “Why Don’t We Get Drunk” was dropped and “Scarlet Begonias” returned to the set. Jimmy once again told his story of the time the Grateful Dead played 2 nights at the same venue in Charlotte and Jimmy followed them by playing the next night and the following afternoon. Research has indicated that this event took place in 1992, although it was not at the same venue, as the Grateful Dead played the Charlotte Coliseum June 17 and 18 while Jimmy played the Blockbuster Pavilion June 19 and 20.

The first encore again featured “Fins” and the Bob Dylan classic “Rainy Day Women #12 and 35.” But the second encore featured perhaps the biggest surprise of the tour as Jimmy pulled out “God’s Own Drunk” for the first time since Last October in Vegas. This was just the third time in the last eight years it was played and the first time it has closed a show since August 1, 1998 in Bristow, VA.

Buffett Plays Frisco

“Hello Dallas, Frisco, wherever we came from!” started stop number three on the Year Of Still Here Tour in Frisco, Texas.

Returning to Pizza Hut Park for the second time in two years, the first set was almost the same as St. Louis, the lone difference being Mac McAnally jumping in with “The City” while Jimmy took a short break.

The second set was similar as well, however “Piece of Work” replaced “Scarlet Begonias” in the set. “Work,” last played in Las Vegas last October, was dedicated via Radio Margaritaville to Will Kimbrough, the song’s writer.

The first encore again featured “Fins” and the Bob Dylan classic “Rainy Day Women #12 and 35,” but this time “Another Saturday Night” followed it, the first time it had been played since Tampa last November. For the second encore, “Stories We Could Tell” made its tour debut, its first performance since the Glendale show earlier this month.
