Last weekend (Labor Day weekend) John Mayer was in performance in Aspen, CO. at Jazz Aspen Snowmass' Labor Day Experience. This weekend the singer-songwriter, guitarist, and record producer will be in Houston at our Toyota Center.
While in Aspen, Co the Aspen Times.com reported a woman had thrown her bra on stage while he was performing, The news outlet reported,“One enthusiastic fan (immediately) tossed her bra on stage to signify she was, in fact, there for Mayer. A bemused Mayer looked down at the bra and used the moment to lightly touch on his once controversial and very public past as a sort of tone-deaf sex fiend, and to note his maturing reaction to fan underwear arriving on-stage. Bras, the 41-year-old noted, have a practical purpose: “Now I’m an older and wiser person and I’m thinking, ‘There is someone out there without support.’”
Mayer a few years ago (about nine) got in heated controversy over an interview he did with Playboy magazine. It was a question about whether black women were interested in him. "My dick is sort of like a white supremacist. I've got a Benetton heart and a fuckin' David Duke cock. I'm going to start dating separately from my dick." He also used the word "nigger" in the interview. This set off accusations in the media of him being a misogynist, kiss-and-tell ex-boyfriend, and racist. He would eventually go into recluse.
. . . he formed a bluesy jam trio in 2005,
started collaborating with everyone
from B.B. King to Alicia Keys and gave
comedy a shot . . .
But his career survived. A few years after that on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Mayer said, "I lost my head for a little while and I did a couple of dumb interviews and it kind of woke me up...It was a violent crash into being an adult. For a couple of years, it was just figuring it all out, and I'm glad I stayed out of the spotlight.
Before all the controversy Mayer was concerned, he was being pigeonholed, he formed a bluesy jam trio in 2005, started collaborating with everyone from B.B. King to Alicia Keys and gave comedy a shot. (His stand-up career was short-lived despite appearing on Chappelle's Show thanks to his risqué style and use of the n-word.)
But his most favored performances are his mixing in of the Grateful Dead material. He has been doing this for a while. John Mayer hit Little Caesars Arena in Detroit on Friday night (Last August 2, 2019), where the Dead & Company guitarist presented the tour debut of the Grateful Dead’s “Friend Of The Devil” (a day after Jerry Garcia’s birthday) during his encore. Mayer has been working Dead material into his setlists this tour including “Deal” and “Fire On The Mountain.”
