Jimmy Buffett, 76, in hospital after needing immediate medical attention

Jimmy Buffett, 76, shared a worrying update to his fans, leaving him to reschedule a Charleston gig after needing “immediate medical attention”.

The singer’s official Twitter shared to his 568,500 followers, confirming The Jimmy Buffett & Coral Reefer Band was rescheduling their Charleston gig.

Buffet said in the statement he had a “sudden change of plans this week” after returning from a trip to the Bahamas.

He said on Twitter: “I had a stop in Boston for a check-up but wound up back in the hospital to address some issues that needed immediate attention.

“Growing old ain’t for sissies I promise you. I also promise you, that when I am well enough to perform, that is what I’ll be doing in the land of She-Crab soup.”

Many fans rushed to the comments to share their good wishes and wish the American songwriter a quick recovery.

Echo7Solo said: “Get better soon Jimmy. We look forward to seeing you when you do!”

Edblust added: “NOT YET! is right!! You rest up – we are all behind you and can’t wait to see you on the big stage where you belong. Fins up!”

LarryTrotter commented: “Get better soon Jimmy!! The world is also much more meaningful when you are singing in it!! We love you!”

The Margaritaville hitmaker was last pictured on April 18, having previously been hospitalised last September, forcing him to cancel his five remaining gigs of 2022.

Buffett has reportedly been hard at work recording his 30th studio album titled Equal Strain on All Parts.

The singer is also famed for being an avid pilot, a prolific restaurateur, and a generous Democratic donor.

He turned his 1977 song Margaritaville into the Margaritaville Holdings empire, in which he holds a 28 per cent stake, worth an estimated $180 million.

Founded by Buffett in 1985, the company has grown from selling trinkets and t-shirts to offering resorts, restaurants, housing and more.

In 1998, Buffett launched Radio Margaritaville online and it was added to Sirius’s satellite.

Buffett’s assets now include an estimated $570 million from touring and recording, a music catalogue worth $50 million and $140 million tied up in planes, homes and shares in Berkshire Hathaway, according to Forbes.

In 2004 he became a country music sensation after partnering with Alan Jackson on It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere and was also awarded a Country Music Association Award.

It marked Buffett’s first award in his 30-year career recording music.
