“Hello Again Philly!” finally welcomed the crowd to the next stop of the Year Of Still Here Tour in Philadelphia after a brief rain delay pushed things back a little.

Returning to Citizens Bank Park for the first time since 2005, the first set featured a new opener, a quick version of “Why Don’t We Get Drunk,” performed Solo by Jimmy. This was the first known time that Jimmy has opened with “Get Drunk.” Past that, the set returned to regular tour form with “Fruitcakes” and “Miss You So Badly” returning to their spots in the set list after being skipped in New York.

The second set saw a few changes as well as “Tryin’ to Reason With Hurricane Season” was back in the set after being absent from the New York show. Nothing else was new to the set, but the order was slightly shuffled.

The First Encore was the same as New York, as “Glory Days” stayed in the set but was not an audible this time. The second encore was again different, this time with a solo acoustic performance of “Defying Gravity,” dedicated to Tim Russert and Family.

“Hello New York!” welcomed the crowd to the next stop of the Year Of Still Here Tour in New York City.

Returning to New York City for the third straight year, the first set featured a couple of big changes. “USS Zydecoldsmobile,” a duet with Sonny Landreth, took the third spot, bouncing “Fruitcakes” out of the set for the first time all year. The other change saw “We’re Still Here” return in the fifth spot, also knocking out “Miss You So Badly” for the first time all year.

The only change in the second set was Nadirah’s “Makin’ Music for Money” moving back up to the fourteenth spot. Nothing replaced it later on in the set, leaving the second set unusually short.

The First Encore remained rock steady, but after Jimmy finished “Rainy Day Woman #12 and 35,” he called the band back for one more song. “We’re calling an audible here” Jimmy joked before deciding on “Glory Days” to extend the First Encore. This was the first appearance of “Glory” since Houston earlier this year. The second encore was again different, this time with a solo acoustic performance of “Lovely Cruise,” making its first appearance since October 4, 2007 in Honolulu. “See You at Jones Beach!”

Buffett, Fingers Return to Pine Knob

Tuesday Night, Jimmy brought the Year Of Still Here Tour back to Clarkston, Michigan.

Returning to Clarkston for the first time since 2006, the first set returned to early tour form with “The Tiki Bar is Open” back in the second spot, replacing “License to Chill” after a one show break. There was no “Why Don’t We Get Drunk” tonight, instead Jake Shimabukuro and Robert Greenidge treated fans to a fantastic version of “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.”

The second set saw a few changes as well as “Scarlet Begonias” was played instead of “Bama Breeze.” But the brightest moment of the night came when Jimmy introduced the one and only Greg “Fingers” Taylor as he played his trademark solos on “Son of a Son of a Sailor,” “The City” and of course, “A Pirate Looks at Forty.” “Fingers” had not played with Jimmy since the Bristow, Virginia show last June.

Again the only change in the encores was in the second one, with a solo acoustic performance of the classic “Tin Cup Chalice,” making its first appearance of the tour. It was last played November 3, 2007 in Tampa, Florida which was the last show of that tour.
