There's No Such Thing as a bad John Mayer show!
But if we're going to go see Johnny boy in concert, we would hope that he would bust out some of his earlier tunes!
Bad news, Mayer fans!
Poor John CAN'T sing any of his classic hits because his voice won't let him!
The singer-songwriter is currently In Repair after having two recent surgeries on his vocal cords! He now needs to rest his pipes until he's back to 100% again. John explained:
"[My voice is] coming back and it will come back all the way to where it was. All the early stuff, I can't do that full voice right now."
So for his upcoming tour, John will have to stick to singing only cuts off his newer albums, Born and Raised and Paradise Valley.
Both of those records feature songs that John wrote while he still had his limited range. So he'll have no high notes to worry about trying to hit.
Most musicians might freak out if they were faced with losing the voice that made them a star. But not John! He's focused on the now, rather than the 'what if'! Mayer said of his situation:
"I'm not worried anymore, period. I'm not worried about pop hits, I'm not worried about sales, relevance. I care about one thing: tell your story. If you're on your sixth record and you're 35, you should be following wherever the road takes you. I want this story to unfold onstage now."
Maybe he can bring his lady Katy Perry up onstage to ROAR out the high notes if he needs to???
We'd definitely pay to see that show!
