Paul McCartney Joins Eagles At Performance For Jimmy Buffett Tribute Show | Society Of Rock Videos


Paul McCartney touched people’s hearts with a moving performance at the Keep the Party Going: A Tribute to Jimmy Buffett event on Thursday night. He collaborated with Eagles to create an unforgettable experience. During the star-studded memorial at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, McCartney’s performance of “Let It Be” was particularly meaningful since he told a heartfelt story about seeing Buffett in his last days.

“I’d visited Buffett during the last week of his life and played a few songs for him then,” McCartney shared from the stage, reminiscing about the enduring spirit he witnessed in Buffett’s eyes despite his health struggles. “Tonight I thought I’d sing one of those songs.”

The evening’s high point was the McCartney and Eagles duet, which illustrated the powerful power of music to commemorate legacies and bridge generations. As these legendary artists came together to honor Buffett’s musical career, fans were treated to a unique and moving event.

But McCartney and the Eagles weren’t the only subjects of the homage. Distinguished musicians such as Sheryl Crow, Jackson Browne, and Jon Bon Jovi graced the event’s program, each honoring Buffett with their unique renditions of his timeless tunes.

Bon Jovi, reflecting on Buffett’s legacy, remarked, “We all think we’re rock stars, but he flew his own plane to his own show. That’s a rock star,” encapsulating the admiration and respect shared by fellow musicians for Buffett’s unparalleled spirit and style.

When the evening came to a finish, all of the artists came together to play “Margaritaville,” which is one of Buffett’s hallmark songs and represents the happiness and togetherness found in his music. The Keep the Party Going homage proved that Jimmy Buffett’s music continues to have an impact and can link fans and artists alike. It was more than just a performance.
