Things clearly go more smoothly for John Mayer when he concentrates on the performing.  His current arena tour is drawing strong reviews and getting the focus back on his music instead of his mouth, which he should probably keep shut unless he’s singing.
 
The tour is going so well that it has been extended throughout the summer. The next leg of “The Battle Studies World Tour” starts in Charlotte, N.C.
 
The spring tour has featured Michael Franti & Spearhead as an opener and the summer acts are just as great. Slotted for various dates in the summer are Train, the Avett Brothers and Owl City.
