Dead & Company postpone show after John Mayer hospitalized for emergency appendectomy

John Mayer is on the mend following an emergency appendectomy, his representative confirms to CNN.

John Mayer underwent an emergency appendectomy Tuesday morning, forcing the rocker to postpone a New Orleans Dead & Company show.

According to Facebook posts from the Dead and Company tour and the Smoothie King Center, the show will not go on Tuesday (Dec. 5) in New Orleans as planned.

The band announced the news to their fans over Twitter, mentioning that the lead singer and guitarists health will likely result in some scheduling changes.

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 now, we are yet to know more about the man's medical condition.

The 40-year-old musician who found fame as a solo artist has been performing with Dead & Company since the band formed in 2015.

Fellow bandmates Oteil Burbridge tweeted his well wishes, "John, get well soon brother!" while Bill Kreutzmann added, "Wishing you well John!"
