Moments ago, Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter John Mayer brought his The Search For Everything Tour to a packed United Center in Chicago, IL. Performing for a diverse audience, mixed with fans who either lust over his smooth vocals and good looks or those who can’t help but applaud Mayer’s remarkable skills on the blues guitar (or perhaps all of the above), Mayer brought in everyone tonight.
And almost as diverse as his fan base tonight was his setlist and performance. Mayer’s Search For Everything Tour, which is named after his seventh LP (due out on Friday), is comprised of three different parts, separated by several different chapters. Mayer not only performs with a full band for a third of his set, after a couple brief set changes, John returns for a solo acoustic set and a John Mayer Trio set to cap off the night.
If there was anything to critique about tonight’s performance, it’s that Mayer kept fans wanting more and taking time for the crew to set up between the portions of the show delayed the energy of the crowd. While Mayer performed a large setlist of 20+ tracks, splitting the night into several portions (including an encore) made the performance appear shorter than it actually was. But with seven albums to perform, including some covers (like an awesome cover of Tom Petty’s ‘Free Fallin’), Mayer was able to deliver a little bit of everything to Chicago, even with a huge catalog.
If you weren’t in attendance, you certainly missed out, however lucky for you John Mayer will return to Chicago as part of Dead & Company on June 30th and July 1st, and again on September 2nd as his Search For Everything Tour returns to the area for a second night.
Check out our photos from tonight’s performance below, and be sure to get tickets for one of the remaining dates of the The Search For Everything Tourhere.

John Mayer is back with his brand new track, ‘Love On The Weekend’, and while it’s only Thursday, we are already in love with the addictive single. When news of the song first circulated, with it came huge expectations, since this marks Mayer’s first new song in three years. And thankfully he delivered and then some.
If you like what you hear from the new track, get excited, because Mayer is expected to release his seventh studio album in 2017. But for now we have ‘Love On The Weekend’ to tide us over.
This month we wrapped up our second straight year at Bonnaroo, teaming up with our friends at Pigeons And Planes to cover The Farm’s 15th Anniversary. And while we already shared some of our favorite moments live from the premiere Tennessee festival, we wanted to share more photos of some of our favorite performances this year. With memorable sets from Pearl Jam, LCD Soundsystem, Dead & Company, Ellie Goulding, J. Cole, Haim, Anderson East, Post Malone and St. Lucia, just to name a few, this was certainly a Bonnaroo to remember.
