Bon Jovi‘s Sept. 10 concert in Mexico City had to be called off after drummer Tico Torres was rushed to the hospital for an emergency appendectomy.

“Thankfully, the operation was a success and Tico is now recovering in the care of his doctors at the American British Cowdray Hospital,” singer Jon Bon Jovi reported on the band’s official website.  “We’d like to thank the doctors, nurses and all the hospital staff who helped our friend through this difficult time.”

According to Gossip Extra, Torres began experiencing severe pain just before the band was due to leave for their performance. Although he bravely tried to postpone a trip to the hospital until after the show, wiser heads prevailed, and luckily the surgery was done before his appendix burst.

Bon Jovi goes on to explain that the band will stay with Torres until he is released from the hospital, and apologizes that this may jeopardize some upcoming shows: “We are sorry for any inconvenience this sudden change of plans may have caused. We’ll re-schedule any dates that we can and will continue the tour through December.”

We’re sure that all Bon Jovi fans agree that the band is right to focus on Torres’ health, and we wish him a full and speedy recovery.
