2013 has been the year of the comebacks. Throughout the year, we’ve seen the successful return of artists who have been on hiatus for a good number of years. Adding his name to the comeback list is John Mayer.
After writing and releasing back-to-back chart-toppers like “Your Body is a Wonderland” and “Waiting on the World to Change,” it was definitely a shock to see John Mayer disappear from the music world for a couple of years. Though his leave was necessary for him to fully recover from serious throat surgery, the folk singer’s prolonged absence left fans wondering when he would make his return.
Well, the wait is over! John Mayer has returned to his rightful place behind the mic both on stage and in studio. The singer just released his long-awaited album titled Paradise Valley last week and is on tour in support of the release. “The Born and Raised Tour” makes a stop at Jiffy Lube Live on Saturday, August 31, and we’ve got a pair of tickets to give away!
The tour also features American Idol winner Phillip Phillips as Mayer’s opening act. Phillips, though a relatively fresh face in the music industry, has already topped charts with his hit song “Home.” Late last year marked the release of his debut album, The World from the Side of the Moon. The album soared to the top of the charts, making the new rocker one to watch out for.
The return of John Mayer definitely seems like a great, mellow way to end the summer. To win a pair of tickets to see both John Mayer and Phillip Phillips this Saturday, leave a comment in the box below naming an artist that you would like to make a comeback this year.
My choice would have to be one of the original boy bands, NSYNC…especially after seeing their little reunion on the VMAs.
The winner will be chosen at noon on Friday, August 30. If you don’t win from us, tickets are still available.
