John Mayer was hospitalized on Tuesday (Dec. 5) after undergoing an emergency appendectomy in New Orleans.

A statement from Dead & Company, which canceled its show scheduled for the city’s Smoothie King Center that night, revealed Mayer’s condition and promised that “the rescheduled date will be announced as soon as possible.”

No updates have been released about Mayer’s condition, and it’s not known if he’ll be able to finish the Dead & Co. tour, which has shows on Thursday (Dec. 7) in Orlando, Florida, and Friday (Dec. 8) in Fort Lauderdale, Florida

The group has already played a dozen shows on its fall tour, which began Nov. 12 in New York.
