The Milwaukee, Wisconsin Summerfest concert marked the first for John Mayer since undergoing surgery on his vocal chords. His live Today Show concert performance the day before (July 5) marked his first live TV performance in three years.
He performed some of his signature hits — ‘Waiting on the World to Change’ among others — as well as new songs from the forthcoming “Paradise Valley” album, including ‘A Face to Call Home’ which he dedicated to (rumored) girlfriend, pop star Katie Perry. The opening act for the concert was singer-songwriter and American Idol season 11 winner Phillip Phillips.
Here’s a review roundup, with photos. See what the critics have to say about the July 6 concert. The set-list and more video highlights follow below.
“To that end, Mayer’s voice was the elephant in the room all evening. The singer has taken many songs down into a noticeably lower vocal register – a change-up most noticeable on “Waiting on the World to Change,” during which he forwent all of his falsetto parts. But on the whole the singer’s voice sounded strong and confident” [...] Mayer made mention of his surgery only once – albeit in quite a deliberate fashion – referencing his former girlfriend Katy Perry, and noting how the pop star ordered food for him when he couldn’t speak. “She was so patient,” he said, adding that she took the time “to continue to get know me and love me” despite his vocal impairment. He then dedicated the evening’s final song, “A Face To Call Home” to “Katy, who is my face to call home.”
“Fully recovered, Mayer sounded sublime Saturday, as though his soulful voice had been dipped in honey, from the opening vocals of the rustic “Raised” track “Queen of California.” His voice was also strong enough to do the heavy lifting for a cover Tom Petty’s “Free Fallin’,” featuring Mayer on acoustic guitar, aided by the slight touch of lap steel.”
