Alice in Winterland, the annual holiday show from San Francisco radio station Alice @ 97.3, has been postponed due to headliner John Mayer’s recent emergency surgery.
The show, which was set for Dec. 12 at the Masonic in San Francisco, will be rescheduled for January or February.
“We just got the word from John Mayer’s camp that unfortunately his doctors don’t think it’s wise for him to play Alice in Winterland,” reads an announcement on the radio station’s website. “John is so disappointed the show can’t happen next Tuesday, but this is not a cancellation – it’s a rescheduling. If you have tickets to Alice in Winterland, HOLD ON TO THEM. John wants to reschedule for a new date as soon as possible, and we’ll let you know as soon as the new date is confirmed.”

Here is our first report on Mayer’s situation.
Here is our second report on Mayer’s situation.
The pop-rock star, who is also a member of the popular Grateful Dead offshoot Dead and Company, was hospitalized for an emergency appendectomy on Dec. 5.
The situation has made it necessary for the Dead and Company to postpone two more shows – set for Dec. 7 in Orlando and Dec. 8 in Sunrise, Florida. Those are in addition to the previously announced postponement of a show originally set for Dec. 5 in New Orleans.
Here’s an update on Mayer’s condition:
“John Mayer is recovering from the emergency appendectomy he underwent yesterday and is in good spirits,” according to a news release from Scoop Marketing issued on Dec. 6.
Thank you everyone for the well wishes. Had surgery yesterday and woke up to see some amazingly kind and loving tweets. I’m so sorry that we couldn’t finish out the last few dates of the tour. This band and these shows mean the world to me. Love you all dearly. ⚡️♥️⚡️
