John Mayer Announces Expansive Summer Tour

The past three years have not been very kind to John Mayer. A string of bad publicity (much of it self-inflicted), coupled with throat issues that required two surgeries and called into question whether he would even be able to sing again. Even recently, he’s been in the news more for his on-again-off-again relationship with Katy Perry than for music related news.

But finally, there’s some good news for the beleaguered singer-songwriter. Apparently, he’s healed up enough that he can go back on the road—and this summer, he’s doing so with a vengeance, announcing an expansive summer tour across more than 40 cities across the western hemisphere, including venues in both North and South America.

“#MAYERISBACK” is the hashtag splashed across John Mayer’s website landing page. Dubbed the “Born and Raised Tour,” the set of summer and fall dates intends to promote the record Mayer released last year but could not follow up on due to his ongoing throat injuries.

Mayer will start with a couple of one-offs in April, playing in Tuscaloosa, AL (already sold out) and at the New Orleans JazzFest on April 25 and 26, respectively. The big tour is set to launch July 6, and ticketing information is available on John Mayer’s website. Check the list of currently scheduled dates below to see if your town is listed.

About the Author


Tim Ferrar's interest in pop and rock started as a child, listening to Top-40 radio for hours on end while playing air guitar in his bedroom. Eventually air guitar led to electric guitar, and Tim began playing in bands and writing his own songs. With an admitted weakness for "a great hook or a great guitar riff," Tim's musical tastes are broad and varied, ranging from Michael Jackson and Lady Gaga on the pop side to Bon Jovi and Foo Fighters on the rock side- making him the ideal guy to cover our Rock and Pop categories. By day, Tim is a mild-mannered accountant in Chicago. By night, he rocks out on electric guitar in a cover band in various clubs around town- much to the surprise of some of his clients.
