According to an announcement on Buffett’s Instagram, “Due to health issues and a 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.”

Among the rescheduled dates are two nights at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and a night at Snapdragon Stadium in San Diego. Both of those shows will be rescheduled for 2023. Find the new dates below.

Two shows were unable to be rescheduled – Salt Lake City and Nampa – and were forced to be canceled entirely.
