first_imgJohn Mayer is back on the road with his dreamy The Search For Everything Tour, most recently stopping at The Forum in Los Angeles, CA. 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 came near a close with a throwback favorite “Slow Dancing In A Burning Room,” which featured “The Beautiful Ones” by Prince intro and guitarist David Ryan Harris on vocals. The set concluded with “Dear Marie” from Paradise Valley. The band returned to the stage for a two-song encore, featuring “In The Blood” and “Gravity” with an interpolation of Ottis Redding‘s “I’ve Got Dreams To Remember.” Sunday night’s Chapter 5 Epilogue featured John Mayer alone with his piano for a stunning rendition of “You’re Gonna Live In Me Forever.” Photo: Matt Rea Photographer Matthew Rea was on site to capture the magic, which you can see in the full gallery below.Setlist: John Mayer | The Forum | Los Angeles, CA | 7/30/17Chapter 1: Full Band: Helpless, Why Georgia, I Don’t Trust Myself, Who Says, Moving On And Getting OverChapter 2: Acoustic: Emoji Of A Wave, XO, NeonChapter 3: John Mayer Trio: Vultures, Wait Until Tomorrow, CrossroadsChapter 4: Full Band Reprise: Still Feel Like Your Man, Congratulations w/ Post Malone and Tommy Lee, Rosie, If I Ever Get Around To Living, Slow Dancing In a Burning Room, Dear MarieEncore: In The Blood, GravityChapter 5: Epilogue: You’re Gonna Live Forever in MeJohn Mayer | The Forum | Los Angeles, CA | 7/30/17 | Photos by Matthew Rea Photo: Matt Rea Load remaining imageslast_img read more

Will Les Miz’s Alfie Boe Fly to Finding Neverland?

first_img View Comments An interesting Broadway switcheroo is apparently on the cards. Alfie Boe, who will depart the Main Stem revival of Les Miz on February 28, is reportedly flying over to Finding Neverland. According to the New York Post, the Brit will take over for Tony Yazbeck as J.M. Barrie before returning to the U.K. to lead the planned London production of the Broadway.com Audience Choice Award-winning new musical. No word yet on when Yazbeck will depart the show; he only replaced Matthew Morrison as Barrie on January 26. Broadway.com has reached out to a production spokesperson for comment.Boe made his Broadway debut as Rodolfo in Baz Luhrmann’s La Boheme, for which he and his co-stars received a special Tony Award in 2003 for their performances. He played the role of Valjean in the 25th Anniversary Concert at London’s O2 Arena in October, 2010 and went on to lead the original West End production of the show. His live opera appearances include The Pearl Fishers at the English National Opera and Romeo ET Juliette at the Royal Opera House. Boe was recently seen on screen in Mr. Selfridge.Directed by Diane Paulus and featuring a score by Gary Barlow and Eliot Kennedy and a book by James Graham, Finding Neverland follows the story of J.M. Barrie and his relationship with the family of widow Sylvia Llewelyn Davies. Llewelyn Davies’ children eventually became Barrie’s inspiration to write Peter Pan.The cast at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre also currently includes Kelsey Grammer as Charles Frohman (through March 26), Laura Michelle Kelly as Sylvia Llewelyn Davies, Sandy Duncan as Madame du Maurier and Teal Wicks as Mary Barrie.
