The San Jose Mercury News has a review of last night’s Jimmy Buffett show in Concord, California: “Review: Jimmy Buffett in Concord”

Jimmy Buffett sees the big picture. He doesn’t let the little things – details that might drive other artists nuts – get in the way of entertaining an audience.

“There’s a string out of tune on this guitar,” the 62-year-old singer-songwriter said during his concert Tuesday at the Sleep Train Pavilion in Concord. “But it doesn’t matter because we are going to play `Margaritaville.’”

He was right: It really didn’t matter. His loyal fans, affectionately dubbed “Parrotheads,” were going to sing along happily to this song whether the instruments were in tune or not. That may say a little something about the level of intoxication of the crowd, which kept the beer and margarita vendors hopping most of the night, but it really speaks to Buffett’s amazing degree of self-awareness.

We have received some more information on changes to the 2009 Fall Tour since we first posted a week ago.

The Las Vegas Parrothead Club reports that the Vegas shows in October have indeed been canceled. A source at the Margaritaville Cafe in Las Vegas told one of our members that the cancellation has to do with the Landshark Stadium deal. It’s possible that the shows could be rescheduled.

There has still been no official word from Jimmy Buffett or Margaritaville.com.

(hat tip to Chris and ParrotheadJones NC for passing this along)

Summerzcool continued tonight as Jimmy and the band invaded Nevada for the next stop on the Summerzcool Tour in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The set list was the same as recent shows except “School Boy Heart” was inserted in the second spot instead of “Stars on the Water.” It was last played in February at the last Honolulu show. Another change was the solo acoustic song in the second encore as “Lovely Cruise” was played for the first time since last October in Vegas.

View the entire set list here.
