John Mayer Hospitalized For Emergency Appendectomy, Dead And Company Concert Delayed


John Mayer hopes to be reuniting with his Dead And Company band mates and not ending up like Jerry Garcia's band's name.

The guitarist has been hospitalized for an appendectomy.

The band stated social media around 11:52 AM EST on their official Twitter account to notify their fans about Mayer's situation:

"Early this morning, Tues. Dec. 5, John Mayer was admitted to the hospital for emergency appendectomy forcing the Dead & Company December 5th concert in New Orleans to be postponed."

Fans React On Twitter

Following the announcement, Dead + Company's fans immediately responded by offering their prayers to the Dead And Company vocalist and lead guitarist.

"Get well soon John Mayer thank you for all the great music!" wrote one Twitter user. "You are one of my favorite players."

"Sending Good vibes to JohnMayer! Speedy recovery brother!" wrote another. "Sorry to fellow deadheads who won't get a show tonight but there will be more shows."

Fans also posted other messages including questions regarding Dead and Company's remaining North American shows and artwork of Mayer jamming alongside Grateful Dead musician Jerry Garcia.

Rescheduling New Orleans Concert

Dead And Company returned to Twitter an hour later to give New Orleans fans hope about the group's new concert date. The band's representatives added that all of the tickets that were sold for the Dec. 5 concert would be honored at the rescheduled show.

"Information on the rescheduled date will be announced as soon as possible." The band tweeted. "Should ticketholders choose to seek a refund, they will be available at point of purchase."

The band was scheduled to close out their fall tour when they perform at Sunrise, Florida's BB&T Center on Dec.8 and were expected to play three shows at Riviera Maya, Mexico to a sold-out crowd. It is unknown if any of the concerts were affected by the announcement.

Mayer's Year in Review

Despite landing in a New Orleans hospital, Mayer had an eventful 2017. He released his seventh studio album, The Search for Everything. The record included the single "Love on the Weekend" and "Still Feel Like Your Man," which Mayer revealed that it was about his iconic ex-girlfriend Katy Perry. The American Idol judge dated Mayer on and off for years.

The "Why Georgia" singer-songwriter also toured across North America, South America, and Europe. In addition, he made appearances on both The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live.
