Dead & Company Postpone New Orleans Show

John Mayer Hospitalized for Emergency Appendectomy

However, as you can imagine the show that John Mayer was supposed to show up at in New Orleans tonight has been postponed indefinitely while he remains in the doctors' care.

Musician John Mayer was hospitalized early Tuesday to undergo an emergency appendectomy, according to an announcement from his bandmates in Dead & Company.

It's unclear at the moment how significant the recovery time might be following a procedure of this nature and how many dates of Mayer's tour with the Dead & Company might be affected after their planned show this evening in New Orleans.

John Mayer, 40, is now in surgery to remove his appendix at a New Orleans hospital, a rep for the singer tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. Along with John, Dead & Company consists of Grateful Dead's Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann and Bob Weir, as well as Oteil Burbridge and Jeff Chimenti.

The "Your Body is a Wonderland" hitmaker is now on tour with the band - comprised of Grateful Dead founders Bill Kreutzmann and Bob Weir, along with Mickey Hart, who joined the band two years after its formation in 1967 - and at the time of writing, it is unknown whether the remaining dates of their 2017 tour will also have to be postponed. As of noon Tuesday, there was no further word on Mayer's condition.

Get well soon, John Mayer!
