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

Dead & Co. have been forced to postpone a handful of shows while Mayer recovers from the surgery.

A representative for the Grammy-winning artist said Mayer was admitted to the hospital early morning.

The Grateful Dead spinoff group Dead & Company has postponed the remaining two scheduled concerts on its 2017 tour following the emergency appendectomy singer/guitarist John Mayer underwent on Tuesday. In the tweet, he mentions being "sorry that we couldn't finish out the last few dates of the tour".




The show, which was set for December 12 at the Masonic in San Francisco, will be rescheduled for January or February. "This band and these shows mean the world to me", he concluded.

The situation has made it necessary for the Dead and Company to postpone two more shows - set for December 7 in Orlando and December 8 in Sunrise, Florida. Information on the rescheduled concerts will be announced as soon as possible. Ticketholders can also seek a refund at point of purchase. "John is so disappointed the show can't happen next Tuesday, but this is not a cancellation - it's a rescheduling".
