John Mayer Recovering from Emergency Appendectomy Surgery

John Mayer Recovering from Emergency Appendectomy Surgery

Ok, first thing's first: Everyone in Dead & Company is still alive.

John Mayer is "in good spirits" Wednesday after undergoing an emergency procedure to remove his appendix, but at least three shows on his tour have been postponed as he regains his health, his spokeswoman said. The guitarist also has a number of upcoming solo dates scheduled to promote his seventh album, The Search for Everything, released earlier this year.

The Grammy victor was scheduled to perform with Dead & Company on December 5, 7 and 8, but those shows are being postponed. "John wants to reschedule for a new date as soon as possible, and we'll let you know as soon as the new date is confirmed".

Oil Prices Slide On Major Gasoline Build
Oil prices fell on Wednesday as a surprise drawdown in crude inventories was offset by a sharp buildup in gasoline supply. Motor-fuel inventories climbed by 9.2 MMbbl last week, the American Petroleum Institute was said to report.

Mayer's Dead and Co. bandmate Bob Weir posted a photo on Twitter of the pair rehearsing on stage with the note, "Wishing a speedy recovery for John... Should ticketholders choose to seek a refund, they will be available at the point of purchase".

The Dec. 5 show at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans was officially postponed yesterday.

The sextet was formed in 2015 and embarked on their inaugural tour that fall.
