Buffett ran into some undisclosed health issues in September 2022 that resulted in the postponement and cancelation of a handful of shows. At the time, a statement read, “Due to health issues and brief hospitalization, Jimmy will need to refrain from touring for the rest of the year. On doctor’s orders, he must take this time to recuperate and heal. Jimmy looks forward to getting back on stage next year.”
