Jimmy Buffett, Hospitalized After Bahamas Trip, Cancels Show


Jimmy Buffett, the singer-songwriter who has built a lucrative lifestyle empire on the basis of beach-bum anthems like “Margaritaville” and “It’s 5 O’Clock Somewhere,” canceled a show scheduled for Saturday in Charleston, S.C., after was hospitalized for an unspecified illness.

Mr. Buffett, 76, said in a statement on Thursday that he had a “sudden change of plans this week” after returning from a trip to the Bahamas.

“I had to stop in Boston for a checkup but wound up back in the hospital to address some issues that needed immediate attention,” he said. “Growing old is not for sissies, I promise you.”

Mr. Buffett said that he would perform again when he is “well enough.”

A representative for Mr. Buffett did not immediately respond to a request for comment about his condition.
