The 76-year-old “Margaritaville” singer was hospitalized for an undiagnosed illness last week — and in an update on Friday, shared that he would be going “home” the next day.
“Thank you for the support and well wishes,” he added wrote on facebook, “I’ll go home for a while tomorrow, and then go on a fishing trip with old friends, paddling and sailing, and get myself in good shape.”
Buffett said that once he was feeling better, he would begin the process of scheduling shows, including a new date for a concert in Charleston, South Carolina, which was canceled due to his hospitalization. I went.
“Once I’m in shape, we’ll see when and where the shows are. I find playing is just as therapeutic for me as it is for fans to listen and sing,” he wrote. “Excited to announce a new date for Charleston as well as some new shows! FINAL!”
A rep for the star did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.
The singer-songwriter announced in a statement on Thursday that he had been hospitalized in Boston for “some issues requiring immediate attention” following check-ups.
He began his note with a quote from Mark Twain, which read, “Challenges are what make life interesting, though overcoming them is what makes life worthwhile.”

“This week I had a sudden change of plans that affected us all. Two days ago, I had just come back from a trip to the Bahamas, melting down from a ‘winter tour’ of California, and was on my way to Charleston for a short Been spooking as of late,” he wrote on Thursday. “I had to stay in Boston for a check-up but returned to the hospital to address some issues that needed immediate attention.”
He added: “Getting old ain’t for sissies, I promise you. I’ll also promise you, when I’m old enough to perform, that’s what I’ll do in the land of she-crab soup.” You all make it.” My life is more meaningful and fulfilling than I could have ever imagined as a little boy with a (tow) head sitting on the shore of the Gulf of Mexico.
Buffett ended his note by thanking his fans for their thoughts and prayers and loyalty over the years, and ended by writing, “Just remember, ‘Not now!'”
