The “On The Road Again” singer, 76, told fans in a statement posted to social media that he had to cancel a planned show in Charleston, South Carolina, due to “some issues that needed immediate attention.”
“I had a sudden change of plans this week that affected us all,” he shared.
Buffett was returning from a trip to the Bahamas when he stopped in Boston for a “check-up,” he said, after which he was hospitalized.
“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,” Buffett added, ending his post with the reassurance “just remember, NOT YET!”
Specifically, Buffett said that earlier this week, he returned from a trip to the Bahamas and was “thawing out” from his California winter tour, “chomping at the bit to get to Charleston.” During a stop in Boston for a check-up, Buffett said he wound up “back in the hospital to address some issues that needed immediate attention.”
Buffett did not disclose the ailment, the treatment he received or his prognosis, but continued with some well-worn advice for seafarers and land-lubbers alike. “Growing old is not for sissies, I promise you,” he wrote. “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.”
The billionaire musician/entrepreneur postponed or canceled his five remaining 2022 tour dates in Sept. of last year due to an unspecified medical issues that required a brief hospitalization.
“At 73, you know, I look ahead at people that I know now,” he said. “You know, we just lost one who was a dear friend and a great inspiration, Carl Reiner, at 98. That’s who I look at up there And then I’ll look at the 80-year-olds that are still doing it. And I look at the late-70-year-olds that are still doing it.”
“So, that’s who I’m watching,” he added. “And working seems to be the magic elixir when you are lucky enough to be an entertainer, or do things that you can still do at that age.”
In his note to fans, Buffett thanked fans for their support over the decades.
