American singer-songwriter, musician, novelist, actor, and businessman James William Buffett was born on December 25, 1946. His music is what made him famous, and it typically depicts an “island escapism” way of life. Hits like “Margaritaville” (234th on the RIAA’s list of “Songs of the Century”) and “Come Monday” were recorded by Buffett and his Coral Reefer Band. His legions of supporters, affectionately dubbed “Parrotheads,” are truly loyal to him.
Buffett has not only had success as a musician but also as an author and businessman; he owns the Margaritaville Cafe restaurant chain and co-developed the now-defunct Cheeseburger in Paradise chain, both of which are based on songs he has made famous. With an estimated net worth of $900 million in 2017, Buffett is one of the world’s wealthiest musicians.

Jimmy Buffett Postpones or Cancels Tour Dates in 2022 During Hospitalization
While dealing with health difficulties, Jimmy Buffett has either postponed or canceled the rest of his 2022 tour dates. ‘Due to health difficulties and a brief hospitalization, Jimmy will need to withdraw from traveling for the rest of the year,’ reads a note on his Instagram profile. He needs to rest and get better, per the doctor’s directions. Next year, Jimmy hopes to resume his performing career.
The Oct. 8 performance by Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas has been postponed for March 3, and the Oct. 15 performance at the same venue has been rescheduled for March 11. The Oct. 10 event at Vivint Arena in Salt Lake City and the Oct. 12 show at Ford Idaho Center in Nampa, Idaho will not be rescheduled, but a new 2023 date for the Oct. 22 show at Snapdragon Stadium in San Diego will be announced shortly.

All canceled event tickets will be returned in full. Buffett, who turns 76 on Christmas Day, took a 14-month hiatus from touring in 2020 due to a global pandemic, but he came back in May 2021 with his Life on the Flipside tour, named after his record that debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200.
His anticipation of performing for his devoted Parrotheads was apparent as he warmed up. He had previously told Billboard, “I consider myself more of a performer than anything.” Requests for clarification from Buffett’s camp went unanswered. Buffett performed his final concert on August 13 in Mansfield, Massachusetts.
