Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band played the first of two shows from the Comcast Center in Mansfield, MA on Thursday night. The Boston Globe has a review of the show:

The gates of the Comcast Center opened at 7 last night, but the parking lot was open for tailgating at 11 in the morning. Who else could be in town but Jimmy Buffett? Faced with the choice of the Republican convention or the mayor of Margaritaville’s annual visit, the sold-out crowd picked the latter. Both were headlined by bald mavericks with the ocean in their veins; it didn’t even take much squinting for Buffett to look like the other guy, the T-shirt, shorts, and bare feet notwithstanding.

Remember, Saturday’s show time has been moved up to 3 pm because of Hurricane Hanna.

From Margaritaville.com:

September 6th Start Time Changed to 3pm for Tweeter Center show in Mansfield, MA

Trying to reason with hurricane season…. Due to the weather expected from Hurricane Hanna that is approaching New England, Saturday’s show will start at 3:00pm instead of 8:00pm.

One of our Forum members, CapnSam, reports that they called the venue office and they said that parking lots will open at 8 am.
