Jimmy Buffett’s 2009 Summerzcool Tour resumes tonight with the first of two shows at the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden, New Jersey. Besides a performance at the Bonnaroo Music Festival last Saturday, Buffett has been off since May 21st. It hasn’t been all leisure though, reports are that Jimmy has been in the studio recording songs.

The show will start shortly after 8 pm ET and you can listen live on Radio Margaritaville on Sirius 31 / XM 55 or on the web for free at radiomargaritaville.com. Be sure to tune in at 7:30 pm for the pre-show.

Attention iPhone owners, there is a cool new app for Parrotheads called i-Encore:

This is the ultimate accessory for Jimmy Buffett concerts. Not ready for the concert to end? Start the application and you can choose a parrot, saltshaker, shark fin or lighter.

Touch the illuminate button and it will change the colored item to a light that all the band members can see.

Other features include:

  • Wave your phone to the left and you hear “Fins to the left!”. Move it to the right and you hear “Fins to the right!”
  • Shake the phone and it doubles as a maraca so you can play along with the band.

So, if you’re a Parrothead, a casual fan, or just someone who loves to escape to the islands this is the concert application for you.

We first stumbled across this on Twitter. Are you on Twitter yet? Follow BuffettWorld now!.

Photos and Review of Buffett at Bonnaroo

Jimmy Buffett performed today at the Bonnaroo Music Festival in Tennesse. He played with Ilo and the Coral Reefer All Stars.

You can view some photos from Buffett’s set here.

Spinner.com has a short review:

In what was billed as “Ilo & and the Coral Reefer Allstars,” none other than the Coral Reefer himself, Jimmy Buffett made a surprise appearance in a show at high noon on Saturday, the third day of Bonnaroo. Truth be told, it wasn’t all that surprising given the rumors of his appearance leading up to it but it was still a treat for Bonnaroo fans to wake up to the sounds of ‘Margaritaville.’

“Well, it may not be the breakfast you’re used to, but we’re going to serve it,” Buffett told the crowd — hardly a traditional Parrothead audience — as he launched into ‘Cheeseburger in Paradise.’ Running through several other classics and covers of the Grateful Dead’s ‘Scarlet Begonias’ and Van Morrison’s ‘Brown Eyed Girl,’ Buffett was mainly here to introduce his new protégé and discovery, Ilo Ferreira, a musician he found in an African cantina while en route to Mali a couple years ago.

On top of that, Buffett told reporters backstage that he wanted to keep track of his kids, who were here to see Phish and enjoy the festival. Speaking of Phish, Buffett fell asleep listening to the jam band’s set on his bus last night to get ready for today’s, um, early performance. “At Bonnaroo,” he told Spinner backstage, “noon feels like eight in the morning.” Top of the day to you, campers.
