Jimmy Buffett health update: Singer shares next steps after being released from hospital

Jimmy Buffett is sharing a health update for his loyal fan base after he was hospitalized for an unnamed medical issue.

On Friday evening, Buffett shared a statement to his social media accounts. “Thank you for the outpouring of support and well wishes,” he began. 

“I head home tomorrow for a while, and then will go for a fishing trip with old friends, along with paddling and sailing and get myself back in good shape. Once I am in shape, we will look at when’s and where’s of shows.”

Last week, Buffett announced that he had to cancel his show in Charleston, South Carolina.

A representative for Buffett did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for additional comment.

On Thursday, Buffett, 76, shared a statement to Twitter and disclosed he was hospitalized for an issue that required “immediate attention.”

“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,'” Buffett said.

“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.”

This isn’t the first time the “Margaritaville” singer was hospitalized for mysterious medical problems.

Last September, his tour released a statement that read, “Due to health issues and brief hospitalization, Jimmy will need to refrain from touring for the rest of the year. On doctor’s orders, he must take this time to recuperate and heal. Jimmy looks forward to getting back on stage next year.”
