John Mayer Reportedly In Hospital For Emergency Appendectomy


Tickets for the show can either be refunded or used for the rescheduled date.

Musician John Mayer was hospitalized Tuesday morning so he could undergo an emergency appendectomy, according to the band Dead & Company.

Mayer, who is also a member of the popular Grateful Dead offshoot Dead and Company, needed an emergency appendectomy, according to a news release from Scoop Marketing. Information on the rescheduled date will be announced as soon as possible.

The 40-year-old Mayer "was admitted into the hospital for an emergency appendectomy" early Tuesday, a representative said in a statement without further detail.

The band is now on their fall tour and was supposed to perform in New Orleans Tuesday night, but they have chose to postpone the event while Mayer undergoes surgery to remove his appendix. The singer-guitarist was due to perform later that night at a concert with the Dead & Company, but that date has now been postponed. Mayer has additional solo tour dates slated for this month, and it's unclear now how they'll be affected.
