John Mayer is using his downtime from Dead & Company’s schedule to launch his own tour to support his last solo album, Sob Rock, which came out in July of 2021. Beginning on February 17th, the extensive tour is slated to run through the end of April, covering major metropolitan centers around the U.S. as well as a stop in Canada.

Sob Rock presented Mayer’s music in a soft rock format with throwback sounds to the early ’90s. It’s packed with talented musicians, and this tour is no different.

“The combined years of experience between these extraordinary musicians, as well as their contributions to the art form, is really something special to see and hear all on one stage,” he said of his band. “We’ve been rehearsing for the past 10 days or so, and it’s been more of a revelation than a recital. I couldn’t be more excited to hit the road with them, and I hope you can come out and see us.”

Mayer will be joined by percussionist Lenny Castro, drummer Steve Ferrone, guitarist David Ryan Harris, keyboardist Jamie Muhoberac, vocalist Tiffany Palmer, keyboardist Greg Phillinganes, vocalist Carlos Ricketts, and guitarist Isaiah Sharkey. Returning to his touring band is his longtime bassist and session legend Pino Palladino, who has been working with the guitarist/vocalist since 2005.
