These “An Evening with John Mayer” concerts will feature songs spanning Mayer’s entire recording career and mark his first tour down under since 2014. There will be no opening act.
“I can’t think of a better place to start my world tour than New Zealand and Australia. It’s been way too long since I’ve been back there,” said John Mayer.

In addition to his solo world tour, John Mayer is again touring North America in 2019, for the fourth consecutive year, with Dead & Company, featuring Grateful Dead members Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart, along with Oteil Burbridge, Jeff Chimenti - and Mayer himself.
Mayer’s last album, The Search For Everything (2017 through Sony Music New Zealand), is his seventh studio album and eighth RMNZ Top 40, preceded by debut album Room for Squares in 2002, Heavier Things (2003), Platinum album Continuum (2006), Gold album Battle Studies (2009), and RMNZ #1 Born and Raised (2012) plus 2013’s Paradise Valley.
Singer/songwriter/artist John Mayer has won seven Grammy awards and has earned a record seven U.S. #1s on Billboard’s Top Rock Albums chart and 25 entries on the Hot Rock Songs chart, the most for any solo artist. In 2018, he released the Gold-certified “New Light,” while working on his eighth solo album, the follow-up to 2017’s critically acclaimed The Search for Everything.
For the third consecutive year, Mayer toured with Dead & Company, which played to more than 500,000 people this year on its third and largest tour. Additionally, he launched ‘Current Mood,’ his highly regarded Instagram Live show on Sundays, which some have dubbed, “the best way to start the week on a high note, maybe even the only way.”
