New John Mayer dates

Already among the top tours in the world according to Billboard Magazine’s mid-year touring chart, John Mayer will hit the road on July 16th in Charlotte, North Carolina. Special guests throughout the summer will include Train, The Avett Brothers, Owl City and Guster. The Battle Studies Summer Tour is all about summer fun with friends and Mayer’s performances have been specially designed to give each fan – from those in the front row to those with lawn seats – an up-close and personal experience.

John Mayer’s fourth album, Battle Studies, debuted at #1 in November 2009 and has since achieved platinum status. The album kicked off a world tour last February that sold out arenas across the country and earned the musician some of the best performance reviews of his career. The New York Times wrote, “Mr. Mayer is an astonishing blues guitarist, both in his technical gifts and in his ability to make those gifts appear accessible.” Rolling Stone declared, “It was an impressive display of his sharp guitar playing, appealing sing-alongs and personable wit, and the audience responded generously.”

“John’s success today is a continuation of a love affair he began with his fans on a home-grown level as an independent touring artist back in 2000,” Michael McDonald of Mick Management, in a recent Billboard interview. “He built, and remains close to, a loyal group of fans. There's always been a sense that ‘we're doing this together’ and that remains.”

This summer, Mayer has earned his tenth Top 5 track with “Half of My Heart,” which is shaping up to become one of his biggest radio hits to date. The single is already on 227 stations with 22.3 million in audience while digital sales of the song have increased each week for the past twelve weeks.

“Half of My Heart” will be featured during Mayer’s Today Show Summer Concert, which will air live from Rockefeller Plaza in New York City on Friday, July 23rd. His Summer Concert on Today is one of several special performances this summer.

On July 20th at The Kennedy Center in Washington DC, Mayer will both speak and perform at a free event celebrating Kennedy Center President Michael M. Kaiser's cross-country journey to meet with arts leaders to discuss strategies for dealing with the economic recession. On August 28, Keith Urban and John Mayer’s summer tour plans intersect as the two renowned guitar players perform a special show together at The Gorge in George, WA.

This summer, JM has again enlisted the support of non-profit organization, Reverb, to take steps towards environmental sustainability on the road.  His AKOG (Another Kind of Green) branded eco-village will be set up in each venue's concourse, along with military group NCIRE.  Additionally, fans will be selling wristbands on behalf of M.O.M. (the Military Outreach Ministry) to raise money for the organization while showing their support of John. For more information, visit www.ncire.org and www.mom4usa.org.
