John Mayer Hospitalized for Emergency Appendectomy

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 USA shows.

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

This is not the first time Mayer has cancelled a show due to a medical emergency, however.

The 40-year-old musician was rushed to a hospital in New Orleans on Tuesday (05.12.17) morning, as he is in desperate need of the operation which will remove his appendix.

Tickets for that show can be used for a rescheduled date or refunded.
