A Jimmy Buffett & the Coral Reefer Band concert in Charleston, South Carolina scheduled for this weekend has been postponed due to the legendary singer-songwriter being hospitalized in Boston.

Buffett, 76, made the announcement on social media. He didn’t disclose his health condition but promised to perform his South Carolina concert as soon as possible. In his message, he warned fans that “growing old is not for sissies.”

Buffett announced that all previously purchased concert tickets would be valid for the show’s new date.

Buffett refers to his music as “drunken Caribbean rock ‘n’ roll” while he and others have also called it “Gulf and Western.” The name comes from the singer’s early influences in country music and his lyrical themes of the Gulf Coast and an escapist lifestyle.

With his Coral Reefer Band, Buffett has made several hit songs, including “Margaritaville” and “Come Monday.”

Besides music, Buffett is also a bestselling author, owns the Margaritaville Cafe restaurant chain and holds a significant stake in the Margaritaville Holdings empire. He is one of the world’s richest musicians with an estimated net worth of $1 billion.
