There's something about a man and his guitar that makes women take notice, but that's not the only reason John Mayer comes off as a ladies' man. He also possesses the poetic skills to woo any lady. His songs frequently deal with love, loss and other mushy things that the fairer sex soaks up.
Celebrity poker player John Mayer is having a concert here in the Philippines with the sponsorships of Channel V and Metro Card Club which is a texas hold'em poker club at the MOA (Mall Of Asia) Concert Grounds.
After displaying an impressive repertoire of original songs and melodies, several music labels offered John Mayer recording deals in 2000. He eventually signed with Aware/Columbia Records and released his debut album, Room For Squares, one year later. With his blues-influenced sound and deep lyrics, the album was received like no other in recent memory. Tracks like "Your Body is a Wonderland" and "No Such Thing" became instant hits and helped Room For Squares go triple platinum in two years.
Amazingly, the album stayed in the Billboard Top 200 for 80 weeks straight, thanks partly to a resurgence in sales after John Mayer won a Best Male Pop Vocal Performance Grammy for "Your Body is a Wonderland" in 2003.
Before his success in the music industry, John Mayer's parents hired a guitar teacher. However, they soon discovered that lessons had become more like informal jam sessions. Disappointed, they discontinued the lessons and John Mayer had to revert to playing guitar by ear. This turned out to be a good thing though, as his love for music only grew. By age 15, he was playing at local blues bars and fine-tuning his talent.
In the meantime, John Mayer toured extensively in America and Europe, gaining acclaim as an excellent live performer. He penned new tracks while on the road and once the touring was done, he compiled the work into a second album, entitled Heavier Things. The track "Bigger Than My Body" became a radio staple and ensured John Mayer's longevity through 2004 and beyond. Most recently, he has returned to the stage, playing shows in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and even Japan.
All is set for the May 16, 2010 John Mayer concert Live in Manila until today, It was cancelled. Since last week, rumor has it that the Manila tour will not be pushed through due to some circumstances. I called Channel V to confirm if this was true and they said they are still confirming on Mayer’s team about it. But an interesting information just came in when I check my twitter account and found out that Tim Yap is confirming the cancellation of the concert.
On John Mayer’s website, they pulled out the Manila schedule which is supposedly MAY 16. Ticket holders may opt to keep their ticket or refund–landline is 9292151. However, John Mayer concert in Manila is moved from May 16 to October 1, 2010 8:00 PM at MOA Concert Grounds.
With more tours on the way, John Mayer has shown that he is a man on a mission. This fresh face in music has grown right before our eyes and has become one of the biggest names in the biz. Let's hope it's only uphill from here on in.
