Buffett Plays Fenway Park

August 12th, 2018


Jimmy Buffett performed at Fenway Park in Boston on Thursday for the first time since 2004. The Boston Globe has a review of the show: “Smooth sailing for Jimmy Buffett at Fenway”

At Fenway Park on Thursday, the headline performer noted that the tracking doesn’t stop at water’s edge. “This is a great place to study the land shark population,” Jimmy Buffett said as he surveyed the crowd.

That, of course, cued the floral-printed Buffett faithful to the next song, his band’s 19th or so of the night. It was “Fins,” the one where fans form a triangle with hands above their heads, then follow the instructions: “Fins to the left, fins to the right.”

Buffett, still grinning at 71, has built an empire out of his lifelong fixation on marine life — the boats, the islands, the pirates, the boat drinks. The Fenway Park show was his last of the year, he said: “Who knows what could happen?” In fact, the “Son of a Son of a Sailor” tour-closer featured all the usual menu items — margaritas, cheeseburgers, plenty of corn.
