Jimmy Buffet - Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays

Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band are famous for their concerts. Most shows consist of 26–30 songs and two separate encores.
A few tours, (notably Banana Wind Tour '96, License to Chill '04, and Party at the End of the World '06) Buffett opened the show with one to three acoustic songs. The Great Filling Station Holdup and Pencil Thin Mustache are common acoustic openers as well as Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes, The Wino and I Know, Son of a Son of a Sailor, Migration, Boat Drinks and My Head Hurts, My Feet Stink and I Don't Love Jesus in recent years.
With the exception of Fruitcakes '94 and License to Chill '04, Come Monday is played during the first set of the show. Usually, after 12 to 14 songs, a 20-minute intermission is taken while a video plays for the fans.
The first part of the second set usually consists of slower songs. There has never been a tour where A Pirate Looks At Forty hasn't been played during the second set.
The first encore usually consists of two songs. After the first song, Buffett introduces the band, and then they segue into the second song. The second encore usually consists of a single acoustic ballad. A Pirate Looks At Forty is a typical closer at shows, however, Buffett sometimes takes the opportunity to choose a more obscure song to perform such as: He Went to Paris, Changing Channels, Defying Gravity, Nautical Wheelers, Survive, Tin Cup Chalice, Twelve Volt Man, Distantly in Love etc.
Fins, mostly performed during the first encore in recent years, is always preluded by the Jaws theme as a teaser, which gets the fans pumped. Buffett calls out to the Parrotheads, or "land-sharks", to get their "fins up"! The fans raise their hands in the air, in the manner of a dorsal fin, and wave it left and right. "Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes" usually has a video of local parrotheads in the arena/venue parking lot playing over its performance. "Why Don't We Get Drunk" is sometimes performed in a different style (Tiki Time '03 Hawaiian style, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays '00 performed karaoke style, Banana Wind Tour '96 audience members selected to perform, and Jimmy Jump Up '90 performed sing-along style). "One Particular Harbour" is played for women and men wearing hula-skirts. "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere" is performed with Mac McAnally taking Alan Jackson's place.
The band will also often throw in references to and skits about the actual venue they're playing to please home town fans. As an example, when Buffett and the Coral Reefers performed at Fenway Park, Boston, in September 2004, they added a performance of Take Me Out To The Ball Game featuring Dr. Charles Steinberg on organ, segued Why Don't We Get Drunk into Red Sox favorite Sweet Caroline, and attempted to reverse the Curse of the Bambino (some even claim they were successful, as the Red Sox won their first World Series in over 80 years a few weeks later).
