NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Alicia Keys, Kings of Leon, John Mayer, Elvis Costello and Stevie Wonder were set to appear Saturday at the Global Citizen Festival concert in Central Park.
It’s not as flashy as Katy Perry’s giant gold Prism truck, but it looks like John Mayer wasn’t content to let his girlfriend Katy Perry have all the fun.
“Thank you guys so much for coming out this evening and supporting me,” he told the packed audience at Ed Sullivan Theater. “If you made it this far you’re a true fan.”
John Mayer’s voice is back and ready to sing for you.
Katy Perry will be featured on “a country-tinged mid-tempo track titled ‘Who You Love'” while Frank Ocean will lend his voice on “Wildfire.”
John Mayer’s summer is gearing up to be a busy one. Currently on the road for his Born and Raised World Tour, Mayer announced today (July 16) that his sixth studio album Paradise Valley will drop August 20.
“These four headlining artists are willing to play for free because they believe this generation wants to see the end of extreme poverty,” said Hugh Evans, cofounder and CEO of Global Poverty Project.
John Mayer has gone from kind of a skeeze to maybe the sweetest guy on the planet. His most recent nice guy deed? Buying 16-year-old fan and aspiring musician her dream guitar.
Adele made a rare public appearance on Friday (June 21) to pay tribute to the man responsible for first giving her a record deal.
The song “Paper Doll” embodies the Mayer sound we’re familiar with. His smooth vocals are heard above his distinct guitar playing.
