‘Paradise Valley’, the splendid new album from Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter and musician John Mayer, will be released on August 19 and is produced with longtime collaborator Don Was.
Mayer was announced on the lineup for the Global Poverty Project benefit concert in Central Park on September 28.
For the European leg of the tour, singer/songwriter Gabrielle Aplin will be the support act for Mayer in each of the eight sold-out arena shows in Denmark, Holland, Norway and the United Kingdom.
Mayer also hits South America for the first time in mid-September. Originally scheduled shows in Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo and the Rock in Rio festival in Rio de Janeiro sold out quickly. Another Buenos Aires show—September 16 at Luna Park—has just been added.
Mayer is using the U.S. portion of the tour to heighten awareness of and raise funds for our military veterans suffering from the effects of post traumatic stress. One dollar from each tour ticket sold will fund PTS-related programs created by Mayer and the Northern California Institute for Research and Education.
Collectively, Mayer’s previous albums—Room for Squares, Heavier Things, Continuum, live album Where the Light Is, Battle Studies and Born and Raised—have sold 20 million copies worldwide. During his career, Mayer has garnered seven Grammy Awards and eleven nominations.
Additionally, he has been included in Time Magazine’s annual Time 100 list of the most influential contemporary thinkers, leaders, artists and entertainers, and twice been featured on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine’s annual Guitar issue.
Last year, he was honored in Washington, D.C. by the Recording Academy for his philanthropic work on behalf of both U.S. military veterans and young people interested in music.
