John Mayer is back! After four years, following 2012’s American-roots influenced Born And Raised and it’s 2013 follow-up Paradise Valley, the famously outspoken singer, songwriter, guitarist and sometimes bluesman returns with his new album The Search For Everything. The record will be released in waves, the first of which featured four songs and was released in January.
And in support of the new record, Mayer is back out doing what he does best, playing live shows, but with a twist. Back in 2007, Mayer played a one-off show at L.A.’s Nokia Theatre following the release of his critically-acclaimed, double platinum record Continuum. During the show he played a short solo acoustic set, a blues set alongside bassist Pino Pallidino and drummer Steve Jordan as The John Mayer Trio, before returning to the stage for a third time with a full band and a lengthy rock/pop set, showcasing the Bridgeport, Connecticut-native’s ability to cross musically genres so effortlessly, his signature guitar-playing always at the forefront.
For his The Search For Everything tour, Mayer promises to play three sets each night: a solo acoustic set, a John Mayer Trio set and a full band set, just as he did that night in 2007 but this time with ten years’ worth of additional music to bring to the show!
The 39-year-old is kicking off proceedings in Albany, New York at the end of March and hitting up cities across the U.S. and Canada before bringing his tour to the Europe, closing out the tour with a massive show at London’s O2 Arena on Friday 12th May.
This is one show not to be missed by any John Mayer, or indeed blues, fans out there.
Tickets for the fully-seated O2 Arena show are available at the below outlets from Friday 3rd February:
