John Mayer tickets on sale Friday
After a long hiatus from touring, John Mayer is going back on the road and coming to Tampa.
The singer announced a 45-city “Born & Raised Tour,” which is set to come to the Amphitheater at the Florida State Fairgrounds on Sept. 7.
Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. on livenation.com, with ticket prices listed at $36 and $75.
It's Mayer's first tour in nearly three years, and his first since vocal problems and a series of throat surgeries stopped him from singing.
Mayer's “Born & Raised” album came out in 2012, but the singer was forced to cancel most of the promotion for the album.
“Today is the day that transitioned from one phase that lasted way too long into another phase,” Mayer said in a YouTube video announcing the tour Thursday.
“American Idol” winner Phillip Phillips will join Mayer on the tour.
