Jimmy Buffett Has Postponed His Fall Tour Due to a Brief Hospitalization

Jimmy Buffett has postponed five of his forthcoming autumn tour dates, including the October 22 show at San Diego State University’s new Snapdragon Stadium, due to “health difficulties.”

A statement released Tuesday morning noted that “under doctor’s instructions,” Buffett “must take this time to recoup and rehabilitate” and that “Jimmy looks forward to going back on stage next year.”

Buffett, 75, will “refrain from traveling for the rest of the year,” according to the statement, which also mentioned his “short hospitalization.” There was no mention of his specific health problems, the nature of his hospitalization, or the date and location of his stay.

The MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas has postponed Buffett’s October 8 and 15 shows until March 4 and 11, respectively.

The concert scheduled for October 22 in San Diego was postponed, but a replacement date has not been confirmed as of yet. Grammy-winning San Diego troubadour Jason Mraz and his band were expected to open the inaugural event at Snapdragon Stadium.

Buffett’s performances in Utah and Idaho scheduled for October 10 and 12 have been called off. Except for the San Diego performance, tickets for his October shows that were postponed will be honored at the rescheduled dates or reimbursed at the place of purchase.

A spokeswoman for Live Nation, the show’s promoter, said that until a makeup date is established, no refunds would be given for his Snapdragon Stadium concert.

The Coral Reefer Band’s tour with Buffett in 2022 kicked off on April 23 in North Carolina. Most recently, on August 20, he performed in Wisconsin.
