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.

Mayer reached out to his fans on Twitter for all the love and support following his surgery.
Thank you everyone for the well wishes. Had surgery yesterday and woke up to see some amazingly kind and loving tweets. I’m so sorry that we couldn’t finish out the last few dates of the tour. This band and these shows mean the world to me. Love you all dearly. ⚡️♥️⚡️
