John Mayer hospitalized for emergency appendectomy

Frank OckenfelsJohn Mayer‘s body has gone from being a wonderland to being a war zone.

The singer and guitarist, who’s current on tour with Dead & Company, has been admitted to the hospital for an emergency appendectomy, according to a tweet from the band. 

“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,” reads the tweet.  As of noon Tuesday, there was no further word on Mayer’s condition.

A statement from a Dead & Company rep adds, “All tickets for the December 5 show will be honored 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.”

Not counting the New Orleans show, Dead and Company have two more shows left on their current tour.  John has a comedy/music show scheduled for New Year’s Eve in L.A. with his pal Dave Chappelle.
