Jimmy Buffett took the Welcome to Fin Land Tour to Indianapolis on Thursday night for a show at the Verizon Wireless Music Center.

Check out the Indy Star’s review of the show: “Buffett draws a big crowd, again”.

As Hurricane Irene bears down on the eastern seaboard, Buffett closed the show with “Trying to Reason With Hurricane Season.” He told the crowd that he hoped Irene would veer east so the show could go on this Saturday at Jiffy Lube Live in Bristow, Virginia.

Currently the track shows Irene in southern Virginia on Saturday evening as a Category 2 hurricane with 105 mph winds, with strong effects felt in Bristow:

Check back periodically as we’ll post any info on the show as soon as we get it.

On Sunday night in Montauk a launch party was held for Chris Blackwell’s ‘Blackwell Fine Jamaicain Rum.” Buffett was at the beach party and was asked what he’s been doing on his summer break:

“You know what I did this year? Nothing,” he said. “I hung out, enjoyed my kids and the weather.”

Rain Delays and Shortens Jones Beach Show

A soggy night on Long Island delayed the start of Jimmy Buffett’s show at the Nikon at Jones Beach Theater by an hour on Friday night.

The weather apparently caused the show to be shortened too, as Buffett only played 23 songs, instead of the usual 25 or 26 that he’s been playing at concerts this year. Only two songs were played during the encore, with “Last Man Standing” finishing out the set.

View the full set list here, along with Justin’s show notes.

The Welcome to Finland Tour continues Tuesday at Riverbend Amphitheater in Cincinnati. You can still find tickets for the remaining shows, plus the Las Vegas shows in October, at TicketNetwork.

Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville Casino in Las Vegas is looking to hire at least 250 workers and several positions are already accepting applications:

The minicasino, which replaces a steakhouse in the Flamingo, will be the first to boast Buffett’s brand and is expected to include a 15,000-square-foot casino floor, 22 gaming tables, 220 slot machines and a centerpiece “Five O’Clock Somewhere” bar. It will build on the existing Margaritaville bar and restaurant that anchors the hotel.

Job descriptions call for employees who can “ensure that every Parrothead leaves with a change in their attitude, if not their latitude.”

Positions currently listed include bartenders and table games dealers.

To apply online, go to Caesars Careers, then search for both Flamingo Las Vegas and Margaritaville under Select Properties.

The Margaritaville Casino gaming area at the Flamingo is scheduled to open in October.
