Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band’s “I Don’t Know” tour continued last night with a show at Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion in Bangor ME.

The set list from the show is now available. The featured album for the night was “Riddles In The Sand” released in 1984. Songs from the album included “Ragtop Day”, “Knees of My Heart” and “Who’s the Blonde Stranger”. For the final encore Buffett sang “Tin Cup Chalice”.

The Bangor Daily News has a review of the show: “Fins to the left: Jimmy Buffett puts on quite a show in Bangor

Buffett, who turns 70 this year, played a two-hour-plus set crammed with hits, fan favorites and a few deep cuts from his 27 albums. From radio standards such as “Margaritaville” and “Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes” to stripped down acoustic versions of songs such as “Delaney Talks to Statues” and the jaunty “Pencil Thin Mustache,” Buffett is the consummate showman.

Though this was the first time Buffett and his 11-piece Coral Reefer Band have played in Bangor, the singer is no stranger to the state — he’s visited many times on his own, and he has had boats built at Hinckley in Southwest Harbor. From the stage, Buffett remarked that he finally got to play a show in Bangor, and that the seafaring culture in Maine fits right in with his beach-friendly music.

“We finally made it!” said Buffett, early on in his set. “I’ve built boats here, I’ve had fun here, and now finally get to come play here in ‘Bangah.’”

More than 15,000 people crowded into the Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion, with big lines at the gates, at the T-shirt stand and at the frozen margarita booth — a new addition to the venue for 2016, and likely much appreciated by Parrotheads.
