The incomparable singer/songwriter/guitar virtuoso, Mr. John Mayer is skipping Cleveland on his 2019 summer trek but is playing neighboring Pittsburgh and Columbus, both a one-tank trip and easily doable there-and-back in one night for the show.
Mayer has grown leaps and bounds since his humble beginnings. Flashback to 2002, Maybe played at the humble 900-capacity Odeon (sold-out, of course) slinging acoustic-pop tunes from his album, ‘Room for Squares.’ He had fan favorites including “No Such Thing,” “Comfortable,” “Sucker,” “My Stupid Mouth,” and“Your Body is a Wonderland” (many of which have largely vanished from his present-day setlists, to the dismay of this preview writer).
Staying way back in the summer of ’02, this preview writer graduated high school and went on to see Mayer perform a co-headline show with Guster at the now-defunct (THANK GOD!) Time Warner Cable Amphitheater at Tower City Center and also shoot a 30-minute special for MTV at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ($5 admission!)
Long gone are those days! Known for numerous massive hits, such as last year’s “New Light,” “Gravity,” “Love on the Weekend,” “Heartbreak Warfare,” “Daughters,” “Waiting on the World to Change,” and many more, these “Evening with John Mayer” concerts will feature two sets of music spanning his entire recording career.
Mayer has won seven GRAMMY® awards and has earned a record seven U.S. #1s on Billboard’s Top Rock Albums chart and 25 entries on the Hot Rock Songs chart, the most for any solo artist. In 2018, he released the Gold-certified “New Light,” while working on his eighth solo album, the follow-up to 2017’s critically acclaimed The Search for Everything. For the third consecutive year, Mayer toured with Dead & Company in 2018, who played to over 500,000 people on its third and largest tour. Additionally, he launched ‘Current Mood,’ his highly regarded Instagram Live show on Sundays, which some have dubbed, “the best way to start the week on a high note, maybe even the only way.”
