John Mayer covers the latest issue of Billboard magazine, and the 35-year-old singer reveals that he is going on tour this summer for the first time in three years!
The tour kicks off on July 6 at Milwaukee's SummerFest, and it runs through October. Mayer will visit over 40 cities in four countries, including dates at the Hollywood Bowl and as festivals, including Luna Park in Buenos Aires, Argentina and Rock in Rio in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.
Mayer will perform at the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater on April 25 and the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival on April 26 as a warm up, and these mark his first full-length concerts since a throat granuloma forced him to cancel initial tour plans for his fifth studio album, Born and Raised.
“The greatest gift I have in my life is the opportunity to play again, which is also the opportunity to dream again,” John tells the mag. “My dreams were in escrow, but when I found out this thing in my throat had receded, the most exciting thing for me was having a second chance at a new life. My dreams have come true twice. That’s really cool.”
Maybe this is why he and Katy split, even if it is just a temporary break?
