Jimmy Buffett has postponed his upcoming Charleston, South Carolina concert after being hospitalized for an undisclosed medical issue.
The 76-year-old singer announced on his Facebook page, “There’s been a sudden change of plans this week that has affected us all. Two days ago, I had just returned from a trip to the Bahamas, thawing from the Winter Tour in California, and grabbing a bite to eat.” Loud to get to Charleston. I had to stop in Boston for a checkup but ended up in the hospital for some issues that needed immediate attention.”
“Getting old isn’t for sissies, I promise. I will also promise you, that when I’m good enough to perform, that’s what I’m going to do in the land of shy crab soup,” he continued before thanking fans for their support. “You all make my life more meaningful and fulfilling than I ever could have imagined as a young boy sitting on the edge of the Gulf of Mexico.” See the full Facebook post below.
The “Margaritaville” singer was scheduled to play at Charleston’s Credit One Arena on Saturday, May 20. All tickets will be honored for the new yet to be announced date. He currently has no other offers for 2023.
Unfortunately, this is the second time Buffett has been hospitalized in less than a year. Last September, he had to push back his tour schedule for the rest of 2022. Fortunately, Buffett was able to return to the stage in February.
