The majority of the band members of Dead & Company qualify for AARP benefits, but its the 40-year-old John Mayer who gets sick before his Florida shows. What luck.

John Mayer is recovering still from an emergency appendectomy he underwent Tuesday but he won’t be performing just yet.

The Dead & Company concerts scheduled for Dec. 7 in Orlando and Dec. 8 in Sunrise are postponed. The new dates for the South Florida show at the BB& T Center in Sunrise is Feb. 26. For those who had tickets to the Orlando show at the Amway Center, you can catch them on Feb. 27. Tickets for the original shows will be honored at these newly announced 2018 dates.  Should ticketholders choose to seek a refund, they will be available at point of purchase.

Mayer reached out to his fans on Twitter for all the love and support following his surgery.

Dead & Company is made up of former members of the the Grateful Dead including Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart along with  Oteil Burbridge, and Jeff Chimenti.
