Unless you were living under a rock instead of “on the rock,” you’re fully aware that Jimmy Buffett was in Key West last week, performing four shows and giving local residents plenty of face time and photo opportunities around town.

Rams Head Presents coordinated the two shows, Feb. 9 and 11, at the Key West Amphitheater as well as two intimate shows at the Key West Theater.

The Southernmost City was added as a stop on Jimmy Buffett & The Coral Reefer Band’s  Second Wind Tour.

Social media exploded last week, with show photos, favorite song lyrics and sightings around town.

The Second Wind Tour name is based on the band’s 1976 song, “Kick It in Second Wind,” from their Havana Daydreamin’ album.“So won’t you kick it in second wind /  We got two more hours to go / Is there any more hope of scoring any more coke /  And we’ve still got to do another show.”
