This latest tour announcement comes after several postponements by the band. Earlier this year, they were forced to cancel their destination festival, Playing In The Sand, less than 24 hours before doors opened. News of the destination show’s cancellation came on the heels of John Mayer testing positive for COVID and pulling out of the event.

Meanwhile, Mayer announced last month that he was leaving Columbia Records after 21 years, adding that he looked forward to exploring “new avenues of making music.” The singer-songwriter took to Instagram on March 4 to share the news with his fans.
“After 21 years, eight studio albums, and wonderful personal and creative relationships, I have decided not to renew my recording agreement with Columbia Records,” he began.
“As hard as it is to say goodbye, I’m excited to pursue new avenues of making music, both [sic] mine and with other artists.
“I love music more than ever, and I believe some of my best work is yet to come,” he continued, before signing, “With gratitude and enthusiasm, John.”
His last album on Columbia was last year’s “Sob Rock”. In a four-star review of Mayer’s eighth album, NMEWill Lavin wrote, “Mayer’s willingness to poke fun at himself lends itself perfectly to the satirical basis of ‘Sob Rock.’ It’s certainly challenging work with lots of substance, but it doesn’t take itself too seriously.
