John Mayer To Perform 'Battle Studies' Live At NYC's Beacon Theatre
Singer/songwriter John Mayer will toast the Nov. 17 release of his new album, "Battle Studies," with a concert at the Beacon Theatre, it was announced today (Oct. 13).
Mayer's show follows in the footsteps of Jay-Z's Sept. 11 Madison Square Garden concert to celebrate the release of his "Blueprint 3" album, and Dave Matthews Band's show at the Beacon Theatre in the summer to kick off its "Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King" release.
"John Mayer Live from the Beacon Theatre" will air live on the music network Fuse, which is presenting the show in conjunction with MSG Entertainment and devoting additional programming to Mayer throughout the month of November, including a one-on-one interview special.
Pre-sale tickets go on sale this Friday (Oct. 16) at Mayer's official fan club Web site, local-83.com. Remaining tickets will go on sale to the public the following day.
The artist's first album in three years, "Battle Studies" features the lead single "Who Says," a folk-inspired acoustic number that finds Mayer asking, "Who says I can't get stoned?" as well as a duet with Taylor Swift ("Half of My Heart.")
Mayer's last album, 2006's "Continuum," has sold 2,418,000 copies according to Nielsen SoundScan.
