People Magazine reports that John Mayer was admitted to a New Orleans hospital early Tuesday. He's there for an emergency appendectomy, his rep confirms.

“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 statement reads. TMZ reports the musician is currently undergoing surgery.

The Grateful Dead offshoot is wrapping up their fall tour, which was expected to end Friday in Florida. Mayer, 40, also has a number of upcoming solo dates on the books, although it is unclear when he may be well enough to get back on the road.

Mayer's rep confirmed to CNN that he is recovering from the surgery. They also added that all tickets from the canceled December 5th show will be honored for a rescheduled date. 

Please say a prayer for Mayer's recovery.
