According to the “Margaritaville” singer, he had traveled to Boston for a medical checkup and was hospitalized for unspecified health “issues that needed immediate attention.”

Buffett, 76, was set to perform in Charleston on Saturday. He assured fans the concert would be rescheduled.

“Growing old is not for sissies, I promise you,” Buffett continued. “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.”

According to The Los Angeles Times, Buffett was briefly hospitalized in September “due to health issues,” and had to cancel the rest of his performances for the year.

Buffett had a string of hits including “Margaritaville,” “Fins” and “Come Monday” in the 1970s and 1980s, then turned toward various business ventures such as restaurants, real estate, casinos and cannabis.

Buffett’s net worth as of 2023 is valued at $1 billion, according to Forbes.
