John Mayer Tickets for Sale
John Mayer is finally ready for the Born and Raised tour. He only had to break up with Katy Perry and get a Botox treatment to fix a granuloma on his vocal chords before heading out on the road with Phillip Phillips. And yes, these are the John Mayer tickets fans thought would have been available a year ago.
The tour, though delayed, has been organized in support of the album Born and Raised. The record was released almost a year ago, landing at number one on the Billboard 200. The tour was originally meant to immediately follow the release of the album, but is instead rolling out around a few major music events, like the 28th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. He brings Phillip Phillips along. Phillps won the 11th season of the American Idol and is on the road to promote his first album.
John Mayer grew to love the guitar after watching Back to the Future. Yes, a major motion picture, and a surprise trip to the hospital after suffering cardiac dysrhythmia at the age of 17, inspired this young man from Bridgepoint, Connecticut to devote his life to music. He began this journey by attending Berklee College of Music in Boston, at least, for a year. Mayer cut his time in college short, moving to Atlanta at the behest of a good friend.
There he worked on an EP. By the turn of the century he played South by Southwest and released an album online. Room for Squares would include the hit song “Your Body Is a Wonderland”. Mayer’s first album would go an incredible four-time platinum in the United States and endear him to audiences around the world, with much thanks to his unique playing style and his well-documented sense of humor. Mayer also began his history of dating some of Hollywood’s hottest women.
He followed this breakthrough work with Heavier Things and Continuum. These albums proved immensely popular as public opinion of the man and his dating life ebbed and flowed. The songs “Daughters” and “Waiting on the World to Change” would become radio mainstays and inspire countless parodies. Of course, most of the turn in public opinion occurred after he broke the hearts of Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Aniston, and Minka Kelly, among others.
It seemed he had disappeared until 2009, when he came back strong with Battle Studios. The platinum-certification was not overwhelmingly impressive as a complete work, but the performance of several of the singles made it clear the singer would not be forgotten or hated for very long. “Who Says”, “Heartbreak Warfare”, and “Half of My Heart” each managed to be certified by the RIAA. Three years later he released his fifth studio album, Born and Raised, but this is hardly going to be the last his fans are going to hear from him.
