John Mayer Taken To Hospital For Emergency Appendectomy

Written by Tom Williams on December 6, 2017

Singer-songwriter John Mayer has been taken to hospital to undergo an emergency appendectomy, which has left his band Dead & Company to cancel one of their US shows.

“Early this morning, Tuesday, December 5th, John Mayer was admitted into the hospital for emergency appendectomy forcing the Dead & Company December 5th concert in New Orleans to be postponed,” the group have written on Twitter.

“All tickets for the December 5 show will be honoured for the rescheduled date. Information on the rescheduled date will be announced as soon as possible. Should ticketholders choose to seek a refund, they will be available at point of purchase.”

Mayer is yet to comment publicly on his emergency surgery.

Dead & Company, whose current tour has been running since early November, are due to perform in Orlando on Thursday night. View the band’s statement about Mayer’s hospitalisation, below.
