John Mayer was the first artist I ever forked out my own money to go see perform live. It was definitely seventy bucks well-spent.
It was probably around 2005 or 2006, we’d enjoyed the first 20 seconds of the opening song then the power onstage tripped. Mayer and his band were instantly in the dark with no power to make music. As a musician, I found it interesting to see how they handled this unplanned event – they just quickly evacuated the stage so the stage crew could get everything working again.
The stage crew were excellent – they quickly got the power back, Mayer and his band came back onstage & everyone enjoyed an awesome concert.
Looking back, it was an eye-opening moment for me – I realised I like it when unexpected things happen and nobody panics… Everyone just does what they’re meant to do and everything works out.
This was one of the big Mayer songs from 2002 that I fell in love with & happily sang along to at the concert.
