After wrapping up a successful summer tour with Dead & Company, the guitarist and vocalist has returned to his roots in the pop world to resume his World Tour in support of his 2017 release.The first portion of the show began with a five song set, where Mayer was backed by his full band for an all-original, career-spanning set of music. The band disappeared for the next section, leaving Mayer with his acoustic guitar to perform “Emoji of a Wave,” from his 2017 The Search For Everything release, followed by a cover of Beyoncé‘s “XO” and “Neon” from his 2001 Room For Squares. Bassist Pino Palladino and drummer Steve Jordan then emerged to join Mayer for the “Trio” chapter of the evening, which featured Continuum‘s “Vultures,” Jimi Hendrix‘s “Wait Until Tomorrow,” and Robert Johnson‘s Crossroads. The full band returned for Chapter Four with six songs, beginning with “Still Feel Like Your Man,” which segued into a cover of Post Malone‘s “Congratulations” with Malone himself and Tommy Lee (Mötle Crüe) on drums.Watch Post Malone and Tommy Lee join John Mayer and his band for “Congratulations” below, as uploaded by brett1179:From there, Mayer led the band though 2017’s “Rosie” and into “If I Ever Get Around To Living,” which included an “Everybody Wants To Rule The World” snippet by Tears for Fears.

The set concluded with “Dear Marie” from Paradise Valley.
