Several of Mayer's appearances with Dead & Company may have to be cancelled, which is sure to be heartbreaker both for fans and for Mayer himself.
As much as I’m committed to making it work from the inside. I’m just excited to be there and in that spirit. I’m on a journey of finding out what is essential to the mix and how I can do that – which part of my voice I can add and which part of the original voice needs to be there.
Doctor: Mr. Mayer, I have to say, your body is a wonderland— Michael Nocella (@writelikemike) December 5, 2017
John: Haha, good one
Doctor: Seems like we’re dancing in a burning emergency room
Doctor: I don’t trust myself with operating on you
Doctor: YOU ARE….IN REPAIR….

I've gotten to know @JohnMayer on & off the stage these last few years. The music, the camaraderie and the energy John brings to @deadandcompany and our @GratefulDead catalog is special. Wishing him a speedy recovery & return to tour. pic.twitter.com/jfwX38rtCO— Mickey Hart (@mickeyhart) December 6, 2017
