John Mayer has reportedly tested positive for COVID-19 and will have to miss Dead & Company's upcoming shows in Mexico.  Stepping in for Mayer will be Tom Hamilton, who has played with Bobby, Oteil, Billy, and even Phil before. Hamilton is also one of the two guitarists in Joe's Russo's Almost Dead.  Hamilton from the Philly area will not need help with the band's repertoire and should be ready to go from the opener -- the band is also planning to add some vocal assistance by Margo Price.

The news about Mayer comes on the heels of Billy K taking these shows off citing health concerns, Jay Lane who has filled in recently in Colorado will step in for Billy.

Sending good thoughts to Billy and John – hope to see you guys up and around soon!
