Dead & Company postpone remaining 2017 concerts following John Mayer's emergency appendectomy

The pop-rock star, who is also a member of the popular Grateful Dead offshoot Dead and Company, was hospitalized for an emergency appendectomy on December 5.

The bad news is that a close call prompted guitarist John Mayer to undergo an emergency appendectomy yesterday.

After having emergency appendectomy surgery yesterday, John has returned to his favorite hangout - social media - to thank fans and friends for reaching out to him to make sure he's O.K.


Dead & Company is made up of former members of the the Grateful Dead including Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart along with Oteil Burbridge, and Jeff Chimenti. Ticketholders can get refunds at the point of purchase.

It comes after the rockers released a similar statement on Tuesday confirming the "Gravity" singer's condition. His publicity team shared that the Tuesday show, as well as the two remaining Florida shows, will be rescheduled.

The Grammy victor was scheduled to perform with Dead & Company on December 5, 7 and 8, but those shows are being postponed. Information on the rescheduled date will be announced as soon as possible.
