Jimmy Buffett and Mac McAnally played an intimate show in Brisbane last night, marking the first of two shows in Australia.

Buffett announced during the show that he’ll be back with his full band in March – April.

The Courier Mail has a review of the show:

AFTER an absence of close to quarter of a century, American songwriter Jimmy Buffett finally made it back on to a Brisbane stage last night.

Crawled on, actually, getting the first of many laughs about his near-death experience falling from a stage in Sydney last year.

But the 65-year-old is in fine shape all that sea air does him no harm and even better spirits, taking this 1000-strong audience on two-hour ride of songs and jokes that goes down as easily as the subject of his most famous song. In fact, Margaritaville now sports a new verse about that experience.

This intimate outdoors gig under balmy Brisbane skies sold out in minutes, and while many of his Australian fans have travelled around the world to see him play, there’s no doubt that his absence from this part of the world heightened the sense of occasion for his brightly-attired fans.

Buffett To Return to Australia in 2013

posted August 30th, 2012 at 4:11 pm

by Josh Martin

In an interview with an Australian news outlet, it’s revealed that Jimmy Buffett is planning a larger tour for Australia in 2013:

Buffett is returning to play in Australia for the first time since the accident next month for intimate, acoustic shows in Melbourne and Brisbane, ahead of a bigger tour next year.

Presumably Buffett would also play in New Zealand, where in 2011 he had to cancel a show there after falling off the stage.

In the interview, Buffett talks a little about the fall. Read it here.
