The Summer of 2008 Belongs to John Mayer

The summer of 2008 belongs to John Mayer, with the release of Where The Light Is: John Mayer Live in Los Angeles on July 1st, a two month amphitheatre tour (newly added dates can be found below) to kick off in July, as well as a feature on the cover of Rolling Stone’s guitar issue for the second year in a row.

On July 1st a brand new 2CD, DVD & Blu-Ray package hits stores entitled Where The Light Is: John Mayer Live In Los Angeles filmed last December at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles and directed by Danny Clinch. The special Columbia Records release includes three distinct sets: an acoustic performance, a rare set with John Mayer Trio (John Mayer, Steve Jordan and Pino Palladino), as well as a Continuum set featuring Mayer’s full-band.

New dates have been added to John Mayer’s 2008 summer tour, sponsored by BlackBerry®. As previously announced, Mayer’s run with special guests Colbie Caillat and Brett Dennen begins July 2 in Milwaukee, WI. Mayer’s tour will now close out the summer with the addition of new dates with guests Paramore and OneRepublic. Tickets for the added dates become available with an exclusive Music Today presale beginning June 2 and will be available to the public on June 7.

For the second year in a row, Rolling Stone Magazine has featured John Mayer on the cover of their now annual “Guitar” issue – both May 2008’s “Living Guitar Legends” issue and February 2007’s “Guitar Heroes” round-up have paired Mayer with peers and icons alike.
