Jimmy Buffett, Sydney Opera House- A Stunning Concert
Santa brought for Dale and myself tickets to the Jimmy Buffet concert in the Sydney Opera House 23rd January 2011.
He is a hero of ours and countless others. He has a lifestyle you could only dream of. Boats, Tequila, Planes, Music and FUN. We first saw him at The Mandalay over 20 years ago. There was a crowd of us. You bought a table and as with Jimmy's Concerts, it is obligatory to drink while you watch. I was a Jimmy Novice at that time but by the end of the performance... was in love. What fun, we were all up dancing. A friend of ours a Radio Host who shall remain nameless, was last seen dancing on his chair. A couple of years later, the same Radio Host was with us in New Orleans at the River Tent once again dancing and drinking to Jimmy and his Coral Reef Band. So we have a history with Jimmy.
We met at the Opera Bar with our friends Stu and Yvonne
From the moment after the Opening Act finished, she was good,
The Crowd went wild.
Beach balls appeared and were tossed around the concert hall. Don't think the Opera House sees many of these nights!
Around us brightly dressed Parrot heads, (The affectionate name for Jimmy's fans).
"I'm growing older but not up
My metabolic rate is pleasantly stuck
Let those winds of time blow over my head
Id rather die while I'm living than live while I'm dead"
