Singer John Mayer has been rushed to hospital forcing him to cancel his concert in New Orleans. According to reports, he is currently having an emergency appendectomy. It is not yet clear when Mayer will be fit to return to the stage.
An appendectomy is usually performed as an emergency procedure as a result of acute appendicitis. The website made it clear that tickets for tonight’s show would be valid for the rescheduled date. ‘Original tickets for Tuesday’s show will be honoured at the new date and if fans want a refund, they can return to point of purchase.’
Mayer, who previously dated pop star Katy Perry, was set to perform with the band The Dead And Company. Earlier this year he spoke about his love of collaborating with the band. ‘When I was invited into this tribe, I promise you it was the exact opposite of anything you might think along the lines of having to reconcile ego or status.’
He expressed his joy at finally being part of a team instead of a solo artist. ‘It’s like a basketball team – you are doing your best to help the team win. I’ve never in my life been in that situation, and it’s everything I always wanted. I am a pig in sh**.’
