He went to Paris .....and so did we!!!
This must rank as one of the best ever concerts. The 300 or so that were lucky to get tickets will remember this night for ever more.
Parrotheads from all over the world came together with Buffett and the traveling Coral Reefers to create an atmosphere that could not be repeated other than having JB perform in you own bar!!!
It was great in the back streets of Paris way prior to the doors opening. The banter and stories exchanged to the sound of popping corks from the cheap French bubbly. The usual PH uniforms were in stark contrast to the French luveys sauntering past to their pre theatre meal
. What was going on?
If only they had known of what was about to happen behind the double black doors covered in posters of previous performers, with a cardboard sign above them all saying "Fins Up Paris 2008"
scrawled in poster pen. It said it all. Raw enjoyment had risen its head and Buffett was about to take us to another World away from all the so called problems happening. Perhaps the UN, Wall Street and the Stock Exchange should attend a concert and see that things can only get better when JB is elected to the highest office!!
The play lists only gives a flavour(English English spelling!!) of what went on. I have not seen a performer, the entire band and crowd have such a time TOGETHER. Two and a half hours of bliss
The bar sold out with the petit French barmaid saying she had never seen a crowd drink and enjoy a night so much.
The only drink left was the near empty bottle of Rose' wine in the hand of the main man.
" I can't go while there is still wine in the bottle" he said whilst taking a swig and launching into yet another classic rendering
There were Fins and Parrots, and for the people who were there, let us not miss out the Monkey
Laugh, cry or just stand and think or remember... Jimmy just makes your mind open up to every emotion.
As Frankie Valli once said....Oh! what a night
Indeed it was
