Grammy Award-winning artist John Mayer will launch his first major tour in three years with a performance at Milwaukee’s Summerfest on July 6.   This marks John’s first tour in support of Born and Raised, his latest studio album, and will run through the fall, with one dollar from each ticket sold benefitting NCIRE’s work supporting returning Veterans.  American Idol winner Phillip Phillips will open for John along the tour route (with the exception of Kansas City and Atlantic City).  Tickets are on sale at

In advance of his tour, John performed a sold-out show at the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater on Thursday, April 25 and made a highly-anticipated appearance at the 2013 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.  A true heritage festival, “Jazz Fest” stands alone in presenting the highest caliber artists in such varied genres as gospel, blues, traditional and contemporary jazz, rock, R&B, Cajun, country, zydeco and much more.

John’s appearances in Tuscaloosa and Jazz Fest were his first full-length concerts in three years and first public performances since his set, onJanuary 16 of this year, at “The Livingston Town Proper: A Concert to Benefit the Fighters of the Pine Creek Fire.” A special musical event organized and hosted by Mayer, the benefit occasioned his first in-concert performance as a singer since April 1, 2011.  (In March 2012, the return of a throat granuloma had forced him to cancel his first tour in two years and take an indefinite hiatus now coming to a close.)
