Buffett changes attitudes in Fort Worth concert

There were no topless dancers on top of RVs, no plastic swimming pools filled with splashing, bikini-clad sun bathers and no traffic jams getting in an out of the Coyote Drive-In Thursday evening.
But, this Jimmy Buffett concert was special _ especially for us parrot-heads who have seen him four or five times in the last 10 years, from among crowds of 20,000 or more.
This time, Buffett was up close and personal.


There were probably 500 or so of us crowded around the stage (the other 600 were mostly in lawn chairs next to their near-by cars and pickup trucks), and we could see Buffett’s every grin and nod - no binoculars necessary.
“You got fins to the left, fins to the right” and lots of cowboy hats in between for Buffett’s first concert “knee deep in Cowtown,” as he put it.
And, if we didn’t know just how special that was, the devil-may-care songster told us and made us believe it was all that special for him, too.
Buffett sang his best-known songs from “Brown-Eyed Girl” to “Cheeseburger in Paradise,” “Son of a Son of a Sailor” and “Margaritaville,” and his fans danced and sang along - many of them seemed to know every word.

 

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — The seating arrangements for a Jimmy Buffett concert in North Texas depended on what fans drove to the venue.

Buffett on Thursday night performed at the Coyote Drive-In Theater in Fort Worth. The sold-out show was also offered at dozens of digitally outfitted drive-ins across the country.

Organizers of the "Live at the Drive-In" outdoor show touted the event as a great way to see the singer and songwriter in the comfort of their own cars and trucks.

Some in the crowd of about 1,300 stayed in or atop their parked vehicles. Others crowded a standing-room area in front of the stage, as Buffett sang while barefoot and wearing a T-shirt.

Buffett on Saturday night performs at a more traditional venue, Toyota Stadium in Frisco.
