TMZ reports that John Mayer was admitted to a hospital in New Orleans, La. early in the morning on Tuesday, Dec. 5, 2017.

The singer was sent to the hospital for an emergency appendectomy, a spokesperson for Mayer told People magazine.

Mayer, who is now touring with The Dead and Company, was forced to cancel his show in New Orleans today. Sources tell us he's in surgery right now.

However, as you can imagine the show that John Mayer was supposed to show up at in New Orleans tonight has been postponed indefinitely while he remains in the doctors' care.

Mayer recently turned 40 years old.

The band announced the news on Twitter, and added that all tickets for the Tuesday night show at Smoothie King Center would be honored for a to-be-announced rescheduled date.

Dead & Company, which is comprised of Grateful Dead members Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann and Bob Weir, Mayer, Oteil Burbridge, and Jeff Chimenti, announced that as a result of the surgery, their concert in New Orleans has been canceled.

In the case that the fans will not be able to attend the show at another time, they will receive a full refund at the point of purchase.

This is a developing story.
