[ # ] Jimmy Buffett hospitalized for ‘some issues that needed immediate attention’
May 19th, 2023 under Jimmy Buffett

Jimmy Buffett was going to play his final show on his Second Wind tour tomorrow night in Charleston. But instead of going to Margaritaville, he is in the hospital for the foreseeable future.

Hello my faithful fans in Charleston and beyond. These few words from Mark Twain about life changes, seemed perfect to pass on at this time. “Challenges,” he said, “make life interesting, however overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.” I had a sudden change of plans this week that affected us all. Two days ago, I was just back from a trip to the Bahamas, thawing out from the California “winter tour,” and chomping at the bit to get to Charleston. I had to stop in Boston for a check-up but wound up back in the hospital to address some issues that needed immediate attention. Growing old is not for sissies, I promise you. I also will promise you, that when I am well enough to perform, that is what I’ll be doing in the land of She-Crab soup. You all make my life more meaningful and fulfilled than I would have ever imagined as a toe headed little boy sitting on the edge of the Gulf of Mexico. Thank you for your prayers and thoughts, your amazing years of loyalty, and just remember, “NOT YET!”
Love to all

Hopefully, the 76-year-old will be feeling better soon and singing for all of his Parrotheads!

UPDATE: Jimmy Buffet gave an update on his health to the Miami Herald. To see what he said, then

“I finish up my treatments tomorrow and heading home to Sag Harbor for a while, and then head to the Bahamas for a fishing trip with old friends, along with paddling and sailing and get myself back in good shape,” Buffett told the Miami Herald in an email Friday. “Once I am in shape, we will look at the when’s and where’s of shows. I think playing is as therapeutic to me to play as they are for fans to listen, and sing along.”
