The Dead & Company show scheduled for Dec. 7 at the Amway has been cancelled because John Mayer really needed to get his appendix removed.

Live Nation confirmed this morning that Mayer is recovering from an emergency appendectomy that occurred yesterday. Besides the Orlando show, the show on Dec. 8 in Sunrise, Florida, has also been cancelled.

The company says that all tickets will be honored for the rescheduled dates and that any information on the rescheduled concerts will be announced as soon as possible.
