John Mayer sold out Bridgestone Arena, giving his thousands of fans what they came for – the evening with him. From acoustic ballads, killer electric solos, funky riffs, country influence, or poppy vibes, Mayer has it all. And Nashville was there to take it all in.
“I knew it was a good crowd four songs in,” he said. But the crowd could tell it was going to be a great show even faster. There was no opener, and Mayer took to the stage leading off with a guitar solo before transitioning to his hit, “Belief,” to start the night off showcasing his smooth vocals layered over his spot-on guitar playing and backed by his eight piece band.
True to a Nashville party, Mayer brought out a musical guest. Topping most guests, however, he shared that this was going to be a brand new song.
“We wrote this song yesterday,” Mayer announced, and then invited Chris Stapleton onstage. Stapleton’s smoky, gruff vocals complemented Mayer’s silky, smooth voice perfectly for the duet fans have titled “I Just Remembered That I Didn’t Care.”
Mayer of course played plenty of his classics too like, “Gravity,” “Waiting on the World to Change,” and “Who Says.” He also treated fans to some special acoustic songs like “In Your Atmosphere” and his popular cover of “Free Fallin’.”
For this tour his shows are split into two sets, giving him and the crowd an intermission in the middle. The U.S. portion of his 2019 World Tour continues through September finishing in Dallas, Texas.
