John Mayer is on the mend after being admitted to the hospital Tuesday for an emergency surgery. It remains unclear whether Mayer will be able to play those shows, though the band has yet to make a formal announcement regarding the status of either gig.

A representative for John Mayer confirmed to CNN that he is out of surgery and recovering. "Love you all dearly".

Ticketholders can rest assured: tickets for these shows will be honored for the rescheduled dates.


As previously reported, John's medical emergency has forced his band Dead & Company to postpone the final three dates of their current tour.

Mayer had performed with the Dead & Company as recently as Sunday. The group features Mayer alongside original Grateful Dead members Weir, Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart, as well as Allman Brothers' bassist Oteil Burbridge and Fare Thee Well and RatDog keyboardist Jeff Chimenti. All tickets for the December 5 show will be honored for the rescheduled date. The new date will be announced as soon as possible, according to Amway Center officials.

The Grammy victor was scheduled to perform with Dead & Company on December 5, 7 and 8, but those shows are being postponed. Refunds are also available.
