John Mayer is heading back Down Under, with a seven-date tour confirmed for Australia and New Zealand through April and May.

With four studio albums, seven Grammy Awards and nearly 13 million album sales in just nine years, the now 32-year-old isn’t just  getting older – a worry he cast adrift with the 2006 release of his here-I-am, blown-open, mega-success, Continuum – he’s getting better.

Since his 2001 debut, Room For Squares, and the world-wide radio group hug given to its hit, Your Body Is A Wonderland, as well as the Grammy it brought; to 2003’s Heavier Things and two more Grammys; to his first co-producing turn with Steve Jordan on the four-time Grammy Award winning, hit-harnessed, Continuum, which included Waiting On The World To Change, I Don’t Trust Myself (With Loving You) and Gravity; to his latest and fourth studio album, his second time producing with Jordan, the November 2009 released, Battle Studies; Mayer’s kind of gravity heads only one way.  Up.

He calls Battle Studies a “from-the-gut” confessional and, if it can be said of his album, it is definitely true of his concerts.  They’re intimate with the same “efficiency of simplicity” he says marks his new record. 

There’s no assembly-line dancers or manufactured costume changes; it’s Mayer’s sweet voice and what’s been called his “guitar ninja-dom” that style-up the room—and both these he lets rip. 

Whether it’s his heart on his sleeve or the watch on his wrist – both are obsessions – Mayer wears them proudly. 

“John makes them feel like he’s singing for just them, to just them, it’s very personal,” says promoter, Chairman of Chugg Entertainment, Michael Chugg.

Kicking off in New Zealand on April 27, the Aussie runs kicks off in Brisbane on May 3 and ends in Sydney on May 8.

All of Mayer’s concerts will be configured with Gold and Silver price categories and tickets go on general sale Friday February 19.
