For once in your life you can say that you had a better night than John Mayer.

"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", reads the message.

The group has been touring since 2015 when the Grateful Dead, the legendary jam rockers of the hippie era, officially retired.

John and his band had a show scheduled for tonight in NOLA, but according to TMZ, the original tickets will be honored at a new date.

The band didn't provide any further details on Mayer's condition or how the procedure went.

Dead and Company took to social media to officially announce the news of the singer's appendectomy as well as update the fans on his upcoming performance. Hopefully the Dead & Co. frontman can get back to performing soon.
