Grammy Award winning singer-songwriter and guitarist John Mayer brought his much anticipated Summer Tour 2019 to DC recently, playing to a packed crowd in Chinatown’s Capital One Arena.
The 27-stop tour across North America began July 19 in Albany, New York, and wraps on Sept. 14 in Los Angeles, California. The tour dovetailed with the completion of the 2019 touring schedule for Dead & Company, where John provided vocals and played lead guitar, fulfilling the “Jerry Garcia role.”
John’s summer tour follows his latest single, “I Guess I Just Feel Like,” which was released earlier this year.
Watch a lyric video for “I Guess I Just Feel Like” by John Mayer on YouTube:
John’s most recent LP, The Search for Everything, was published by Columbia Records in April 2017, about six months before his 40th birthday. The album was his seventh studio release, and it had a deeply introspective vibe to it as he approached his forties. “Its about his quest for forgiveness, companionship, family, and meaning — the real everything. In classic Mayer fashion, it’s deeply sentimental and a little existential,” according to the album’s description in Apple Music.
