Jimmy Buffett has canceled an upcoming concert in South Carolina after being hospitalized earlier this week.
In a statement, Buffett said he was back on Tuesday after a trip from the Bahamas and “dead to get to Charleston” when he stopped in Boston, Massachusetts, for what he described as a check-up. However, he later “ended up back in the hospital to address some issues that required immediate attention.”
The 76-year-old “Margaritaville” singer did not say what those songs were.
“Getting old is not for sissies, I promise you,” she wrote.
Buffett said he would reschedule the concert for when he was “well enough to perform.” On his website, a statement said that the tickets purchased would be honored on the new date.
In 2022, Buffets rescheduled tour dates due to health problems and a “brief hospitalization”. Those tour dates were intended for late 2022 and have been rescheduled for 2023.
In 2020, he spoke with “CBS sunday morningabout continuing to act even at 70.
“At 73, you know, I look forward to the people I meet now,” he said. “You know, we just lost one who was a dear friend and a huge inspiration, Carl Reiner, at 98. That’s what I look up to… And then I’ll look at the 80-year-olds who are still doing Y I look at people in their 70s who are still doing it.”
“So that’s what I’m looking at,” he added. “And working seems to be the magic elixir when you’re lucky enough to be an artist or do things you can still do at that age.”
In his note to fans, Buffett thanked fans for their decades of support.
“You all make my life more meaningful and fulfilling than I could have ever imagined as a [tow] headed boy sitting on the edge of the Gulf of Mexico,” he wrote. “Thank you for his prayers and thoughts, his incredible years of loyalty, and just remember, ‘NOT YET!'”
