A lot of people were very upset when late yesterday afternoon we found out that the Dead & Co show at SPAC was being cancelled. The information came out as "due to unforeseen circumstances." That's kind of hard to take just a few hours before the show was set to go off, but now we know the real story behind the cancellation. Apparently John Mayer's dad had a serious medical issue. This is what John wrote on his Instagram page. “This morning, my father suffered a medical emergency and was transported to the ER where he received much-needed and great care,” said Mayer. “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.” So while it was upsetting, obviously the health of John's dad is more important than the show. We did miss them, though and hope they're able to find their way back to the Capital Region in the future. And of course, we'll keep John's dad in our prayers for a speedy recovery. Refunds for the show can be made at point of purchase.
