Dead & Company guitarist John Mayer is pulling out of two weekend festivals in Mexico this month after he tested positive for Covid-19.
“Today, just prior to leaving for Mexico, per his physician, @JohnMayer tested positive for COVID-19 and will be unable to perform at the upcoming ‘Playing in the Sand’ event in Riviera Cancun January 7-10,” Dead & Company revealed on Instagram.
Dead & Company are scheduled to perform at Playing In The Sand, their two-weekend festival in Cancun, Mexico, during January 7-10 and January 13-16.
The band’s drummer Bill Kreutzmann said earlier this week that he is not participating in the concerts due to health concerns.
The social media post indicates that despite their absence, the other members of the band will take the stage.
Mickey Hart, Bob Weir, Jeff Chimenti, Oteil Burbridge, Jay Lane, Tom Hamilton Jr., and special guest Margo Price are among the performers remaining on the lineup.
“We came down here to have fun. Unfortunately some of our brothers cannot make it but fun is what we’re going to have,” Weir added in the concluding part of the post.
