1977 Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes Tour Dates

back to the Shows & Set Lists Archive

1977 saw Jimmy catch a big wave as he opened for the Eagles for several dates in March and a few in July. “Margaritaville” flew up the charts in the summer, helping the summer tour grow to the amphitheatres that Jimmy still plays today. The Amazing Rhythm Aces opened for a few shows in California in May, while the Little River Band was picked up in June to open. Jennifer Warnes also opened some shows. In late June, Jimmy added new drummer Kenneth Buttrey to the band and they rehearsed for 3 nights in Sarasota, FL before embarking on a tour of the south that included a couple of shows opening for The Eagles again in Florida and Texas. The August 2 show in New York was broadcast along the east coast on the Radio, Jimmy’s first broadcast since 1975. A special show was played in September as Jimmy opened for Fleetwood Mac at County Stadium in Milwaukee, WI. For the fall, Jimmy drafted Jesse Winchester to open shows throughout the south and along the east coast.
