First semester of Summerzcool ends in Tampa

April 25th, 2009

The Summerzcool tour moved home to Florida tonight as Jimmy and the band invaded the Coast of Florida for the next show on the Summerzcool Tour in Tampa, Florida.

The fun started early as before Hot, Hot, Hot Jimmy brought out Florida Head football coach Urban Meyer and awarded him a Tailgate Trophy. From there, the show was basically the same as Raleigh. “Coast of Carolina” was dedicated to Jimmy’s wife Jane for her birthday. “Gypsies in the Palace” once again featured the poem before the song. But the encore brought us a few tour debuts as Jimmy treated us to a full band arrangement of “Havana Daydreamin’” as the final song in the first encore and “Migration” as the solo acoustic song in the second encore. Both where last played in Key West on February 12.

View the entire set list here.
