December 5, 2017 Updated: December 5, 2017

Singer John Mayer was reportedly hospitalized in New Orleans, delaying a concert.

The singer was sent to the hospital for an emergency appendectomy, a representative for Mayer told People magazine.

“Early this morning, John Mayer was admitted into the hospital for emergency appendectomy forcing the Dead & Company December 5th concert in New Orleans to be postponed,” a representative said in a statement to the magazine.

TMZ also said that “sources tell us he’s in surgery right now.”

“All tickets for the December 5 show will be honored for the rescheduled date,” Dead & Company wrote in a statement about the concert cancellation. “Information on the rescheduled date will be announced as soon as possible. Should ticketholders choose to seek a refund, they will be available at point of purchase.”

He was on tour with the Grateful Dead offshoot Dead & Company for the past few weeks.

Other details on his hospitalization were not clear.

Dead & Company’s next performance is in Orlando, Florida, on Thursday, Dec. 7, and they’re also slated to play Sunrise, Florida, on Friday.

In March, Mayer told The New York Times he regretted being called a “bad boy” and womanizer earlier on in his life.

“I’ve inherited a younger man’s reputation,” he explained. “You can even break ‘bad boy’ into good bad boy and bad bad boy—I somehow managed to become a bad version of a bad boy.”
