Jimmy Buffett came home to the Gulf Coast on Tuesday night, playing a specially tailored set list for a sold out crowd at the Bay Center in Pensacola, Florida.

In the pre-show interview, Buffett said he felt like he was at a family reunion because of all the family members from the area that were in attendance.

Buffett veered away from the typical Lounging at the Lagoon set early, playing “Life Is Just a Tire Swing,” “Frank and Lola,” and “The Pascagoula Run.” Later in the show he brought out “Nobody From Nowhere,” “Floridays,” and “Bama Breeze.” The show ended with perhaps the most appropriate finale, “When The Coast Is Clear,” which was last played live on September 2nd, 2010 in Bristow, Virginia.

The Pensacola News Journal has a review of the show: “Fans go all out for love of party, music”

Buffett and the band hit the road to Jacksonville for a show on Thursday night before heading to Key West next week to start recording the new album.

    Slight correction – Jimmy last played Coast is Clear at Jones Beach in August 2010, maybe since then I’m not sure. A native Gulf-Coaster, I scheduled a business trip to NY to see Bubba since I couldn’t make the Gulf Coast show.

    My parents were at the show last night (Dad is one month younger than Jimmy), and had a blast. I’m glad he brought out so many “hometown” songs and references.
