John Mayer Hospitalized for Emergency Appendectomy

John Mayer was hospitalized Tuesday morning for an emergency appendectomy, according to a statement from Dead & Company, with whom he is touring.

“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 statement reads. A rep followed with a press release saying all tickets for the show will be honored for the rescheduled date and that information will be announced “as soon as possible.” Refunds are also available for ticketholders if they so choose.

The ailment was apparently unexpected, as 11 hours before Dead & Company posted their statement, Mayer was tweeting about, of all things, copyediting. “CORRECTION: on Monday afternoon I posted to my Instagram stories a screenshot of a HuffPost headline that used the number 2 as opposed to spelling ‘two,’ while citing a rule stating that number should be spelled at all times. It was used correctly as it should be in headlines,” he wrote. A couple of jokey tweets followed.

Beyond Tuesday’s postponement, Dead & Company have two dates remaining on their current tour, on Dec. 7 and 8 in Orlando and Sunrise, Florida. The tour began Nov. 9 in San Francisco. Variety will update with further details when they become available.
