Wanted to let everyone know that sadly for some unknown reason (to me at least) John Mayer has canceled the 11/19/13 show in Moline, IL & the 11/20/13 show in Sioux City, IA. I just happened to notice a couple of days ago & I’m not really sure why. I do however, know that Zane Carney is having vocal issues with proposed surgery on 11/15/13. So perhaps he needs a bit more recuperation time? I’m not quite sure, but I do feel bad for those who were waiting to see John Mayer & family! I would be so terribly brokenhearted! Hell, I’ve seen them 8 times already & still am absolutely crushed that I couldn’t get great seats to see them one last time in December!!!! And we’re so spoiled that I won’t buy anything less than the best seats. I’m going to keep watching, but I’m not getting my hopes up. Stupid me, should have bought them when they were on pre sale for Citi card members!!!!! UGH, what in the world was I thinking? I already know what I was thinking, “we’ve been to 8 shows & he rarely changes it up, put the cash towards a real vacation!” No doubt, it was one of my “I don’t like him anymore days!” lol It’s a very sensitive relationship we have with Mr. Mayer. Morgan has these days as well, but no matter what, we always love him in the end!!!!!!
Regardless of my feelings, I truly hope not to many of you will be affected & if you really love John Mayer are able to catch a show somewhere else close by you. I’m not all that familiar with the Midwest. Sorry for the sad news! And we do wish Zane Carney a speedy recovery & not only because we love him & were going to try to see him again solo in NYC, but he’s just so damn adorable & magnificently talented!
On a side note John Mayer played twice on the BBC Two on the show Later With Jools Holland! Sorry that’s late info, but if you happen to have the channel maybe the play reruns? I really don’t know. I am not a TV person.
Another tidbit of info for you: you have 11 days remaining to enter the “Taste of Country John Mayer tickets with a meet & greet!” So you better get on it if you’re interested! It might make up for someone missing those 2 canceled shows…
John Mayer & crew are about to begin the European leg of the Born and Raised tour. How exciting is that? I am so jealous! I love Europe and John Mayer and passed up my vacation this past year to spend the summer literally chasing him around the NE part of the US! And boy, was it a great time! As great as say, bumming around Ireland or Tuscany? Well it’s a close second!!!!!
Starting tomorrow 10/15 John and the boys will be playing 8 shows in Denmark, Norway, Netherlands, and the UK. Looks as though they’ll be taking a few weeks off upon finishing the last show in London on 10/26. There are no dates listed then until 11/19 in Illinois through 12/17 in Brooklyn then looks like a long break til spring!
Well, we hope John takes care of himself and rests that magnificent voice and magical hands of his! I personally think he’s looking rather thin and very tired in his recent media photos. I hope he’s not over extending himself and putting his health at risk by trying to give too much on this tour! That, however, doesn’t change the fact that I want to see him about 546,194,348 more times!!!! Sadly, there is never enough John Mayer! Even when I think he’s acting quite douchey which really is not really all that often (but often enough), all I have to do is listen to 10 seconds of any of my favorites (Something’s Missing, Comfortable, Walt Grace, Edge of Desire, Waiting on the Day, Not Myself, Perfectly Lonely, Born and Raised….OMG the list goes on forever!!!!!) and I love him and all his doucheiness all over again! It is, afterall, what makes John Mayer, well, John Mayer! Let me restate the above. I don’t generally think JM is a douche like a lot of people do. I do think sometimes he gets a bit cranky especially when things aren’t perfect. I have a close musician friend to whom I am always comparing John Mayer, because I think they are so very similar in their personalities, skill and intensity and sometimes both are super cranky! lol Anyway, that’s a topic for another time. Just wanted to keep you all updated on the upcoming tour dates.
Gosh what I wouldn’t give to see John Mayer in London or Netherlands!!!!! ugh
Wishing you all a smashingly good day!
I know I have been MIA for quite some time. I do apologize to my loyal followers & anyone new as well. I have been having a lot of family issues on top of previous computer issues and really lost my drive to blog! I think, however, I may have found it again. Although we are not currently “chasing” John Mayer there are still tons of videos, pics, info, etc. to share with you all.
Since I have been on hiatus I have heard from A LOT of you with almost all positive comments! I thank you all so very much for your feedback & compliments! I’m going to try, but cannot guarantee to get back to each & every one. Please know that I was truly overwhelmed with your support & am glad to be back!
And to the person who got a free dinner from passing on my info…that’s awesome (hope you had the French Onion Soup!)! Glad to help you both!!!!!
Here’s the set list for the Jones Beach Theater. Steve Jordan, who is the drummer for the John Mayer Trio made a special appearance & played with John & the band. Unfortunately, we tried to get there, but the powers that be wouldn’t have it.
