Dead & Company canceled their Saratoga Springs concert after John Mayer‘s father was hospitalized after experiencing a medical emergency.
The rock super group was scheduled to play at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga Springs, New York, on Wednesday.
John said on an Instagram Story shared on Wednesday that his father Richard Mayer, 94, 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,” added the Dead & Company singer/guitarist.
“Due to unforeseen circumstances, tonight’s show at Saratoga Performing Arts Center has been cancelled,” the band later said in a statement without revealing the reason.
Tickets will be refunded automatically at the original point of purchase, the band said, adding that the remaining tour dates are unaffected.
Dead & Company is currently on a headlining summer tour which is scheduled to end on July 16.
