John Mayer, alongside opening act The Record Company played to a near sold out crowd at the Verizon Center on Thursday, April 5. The Search for Everything Tour gives you a little bit of all of John Mayer’s world. The show is set up to give you a few mini sets that focus around John and his guitars.
The tour opens and runs through like a documentary. With text and commentary flashing on the screen in the back, the breaks between set changes and the flow of the music. It’s a well put together performance from beginning to end.
The first set is dedicated to John and his full band. This is followed by a solo set with John. Then is wraps with an epic set by the “trio” featuring John’s Bassist Pino Palladino and Drummer Steve Jordan.
John also throws fans a curve ball by changing the set list in each show. If you have missed a show so far, don’t worry! John and the crew have plenty more dates.
The Set List for the Washington DC concert at Verizon Center included I Don’t Trust Myself (With Loving You), the classic hit “Your Body Is a Wonderland”, a few cover versions of Tom Petty’s Free Fallin’, “Ain’t No Sunshine” by Bill Withers & Bold as Love by The Jimi Hendrix Experience.
Mayer closed out the concert with not one by two encores. He played “Still Feel Like Your Man”, “Born and Raised” before soloing on “You’re Gonna Live Forever in Me”
