By Stermy 5 Min Read

Renowned musician Jimmy Buffett, accompanied by his esteemed Coral Reefer Band, has been compelled to reschedule a highly anticipated concert due to an unforeseen medical emergency that demanded immediate attention. In a Facebook post, the 76-year-old maestro elucidated the sudden turn of events he experienced over the weekend, leading him to seek additional medical care.

According to the post, the much-anticipated Jimmy Buffett & the Coral Reefer Band performance, originally slated for May 20 at Credit One Stadium in Charleston, will be rescheduled. Rest assured, all individuals who have previously purchased tickets will have their bookings duly honored once the new date is unveiled.

In a personal address to his cherished followers, Jimmy expressed his heartfelt sentiments, invoking the profound words of Mark Twain to encapsulate the transformative nature of life. “Challenges,” Twain asserted, “make life interesting; however, overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.”

Reflecting upon the recent turn of events, Jimmy divulged the unexpected disruption that impacted everyone involved. A mere two days ago, he returned from an invigorating sojourn in the Bahamas, thawing himself from the clutches of California’s “winter tour” and eagerly anticipating his arrival in Charleston.


However, fate had a different plan in store. Compelled to make a detour to Boston for a routine check-up, Jimmy found himself unexpectedly back in the hospital, compelled to confront pressing health concerns that demanded immediate attention.

The music virtuoso emphatically underscored the undeniable reality that “growing old is not for sissies,” providing an unfiltered glimpse into his current state of well-being. Nevertheless, Jimmy made a resolute promise to his devoted fans that, once he regains his strength, he will resolutely return to the stage, ready to captivate audiences in the realm synonymous with the delectable She-Crab soup.

In a heartfelt conclusion to his message, Jimmy expressed profound gratitude for the unwavering support he has received from his fans throughout the years. Acknowledging their thoughts and prayers, he warmly extended his love and appreciation, signing off with a gentle reminder to all: “NOT YET!” – a testament to his unyielding determination.

In the personal statement, Jimmy said: ‘Hello my faithful fans in Charleston and beyond. 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.”

‘I had a sudden change of plans this week that affected us all. Two days ago, I was just back from a trip to the Bahamas, thawing out from the California “winter tour,” and chomping at the bit to get to Charleston.

‘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.’

Jimmy stressed that ‘growing old is not for sissies, I promise you’ as he opened up about his health.


He 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.

‘You all make my life more meaningful and fulfilled than I would have ever imagined as a toe headed little boy sitting on the edge of the Gulf of Mexico.’

He ended his message with gratitude for all of the years of support he’s received from fans.

‘Thank you for your prayers and thoughts, your amazing years of loyalty, and just remember, “NOT YET!” Love to all. JB,’ he said.

Since the 1970s, Jimmy’s Coral Reefer Band has illuminated the music scene, solidifying their indelible mark since their inception in the preceding decade. Notably, his breakthrough hit in 1977, “Margaritaville,” earned the distinction of being named one of the century’s most exceptional songs by the Recording Industry Association of America.

As anticipation builds for the forthcoming announcement of the rescheduled concert date, the enduring bond between Jimmy Buffett, his Coral Reefer Band, and their devoted listeners remains unshakable, serving as a testament to the lasting impact they have made within the realm of music.
