John Mayer announces first solo acoustic tour
The singer is going solo and hitting the road with a North American tour.
John Mayer is embarking on his first acoustic tour in March of 2023. The 19-date tour across North America will start in New Jersey and end in Los Angeles in April.
This tour is different than Mayers previous tours as he typically travels with various bands such as ‘Dead Company’ and ‘The John Mayer Trio’. ‘The John Mayer Trio’ will also play a special charity show right before Mayer’s solo tour kicks off.
On March 9 the band will play at Love Rocks NYC, a concert at the Beacon Theatre in New York City supporting God’s Love We Deliver. The organization provides assistance in fighting hunger and malnutrition among children and adults living with HIV/AIDs, cancer, and other illnesses.
The 45-year-old singer’s tour will wrap up just in time for the start of ‘Dead Company’s’ final tour. Mayer has toured with the band since 2015, with their last tour set to begin on May 19 in Los Angeles.
Mayer announced the tour plans with an Instagram post on Thursday.
“A lot has changed since then, but I knew one day I’d feel it in my heart to do an entire run of shows on my own again, just like those early days,” reads part of the caption.
Mayer won’t be alone
Accompanying Mayer on the tour will be singer-songwriters Lizzy McAlpine and Alec Benjamin. Additionally, a different special guest for each city will be announced at a later date.
Mayer also said he will be playing some of his older songs alongside some songs “you haven’t heard yet” on acoustic and electric guitars, as well as on the piano.
Mayor also announced that two pairs of front-row tickets will be auctioned off for each show on the tour through charityauctionstoday.com. The proceeds from the auction will go to the ‘Back To You’ fund, which is Mayer’s donor-advised fund that regularly donates to various charities.
‘John Mayer Solo’ tickets will go on sale to the public Friday, February 3. Presale begins two days earlier on February 1 and runs until February 2. Fans are able to sign up for presale access through Johnmayer.com.
