John Mayer Cancels Show to Care for Father, Richard, During “Medical Emergency”

John Mayer’s band Dead & Company canceled their show in New York on Wednesday (7/6) after Mayer’s father suffered a “medical emergency.”

According to Pop Culture, the singer addressed the cancellation on his Instagram Storytelling fans, “This morning, my father suffered a medical emergency and was transported to the ER where he received much-needed and great care. He is now fairly stable and will continue to undergo some procedures, but as you can understand, I have to stay in NYC and can’t play tonight’s show in Saratoga Springs.”

He posted that his 94-year-old father was fairly stable, but will continue to undergo some procedures. Mayer is staying in New York City with him.
