John Mayer was rushed to a New Orleans hospital early Tuesday morning (December 5) for emergency surgery.

According to TMZ, Mayer's rep confirmed that the singer was forced to undergo a last-minute appendectomy.

Mayer, who is currently touring with The Dead and Company, was forced to cancel his show in New Orleans today. The tour stop will be rescheduled.

This is not the first time Mayer has cancelled a show due to a medical emergency, however.

In 2011, the musician began receiving treatment for a granuloma discovered on his vocal chords. In September of the same year, he underwent surgery to have the granuloma removed. Unfortunately, the initial surgery was unsuccessful and Mayer had to undergo a number of follow-up surgeries, which resulted in the cancellation of his 2012 tour.
