John Mayer Undergoes Emergency Appendectomy
John Mayer is on the mend after undergoing an emergency appendectomy yesterday morning.
John’s condition certainly seemed to come out of the blue since Monday afternoon John was spending his time on social media joking about a criticism he incorrectly made about the grammar in a Huffington Post headline. Just 11 hours later, Dead & Company, who John is currently touring with, announced his procedure along with the postponement of their show in New Orleans last night.
“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,” read a statement from the band. So far no word on when the show will be rescheduled, but it is expected to be announced “as soon as possible.”
