With the launch of his long-awaited tour, John Mayer makes it clear that he is not just “Waiting on the World to Change,” but is committed to making a difference in his country and community. The Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter and musician has teamed up with the Northern California Institute for Research and Education to create programs that will build awareness and raise funds to aid soldiers suffering from post traumatic stress disorder. Additionally, Mayer has pledged to donate one dollar from each ticket sold during the U.S. portion of his tour to the programs. And with forty shows scheduled across the U.S. between July 6th and early October, this should add up to a substantial amount.
Mayer has also been added to the Global Poverty Project benefit concert which will take place in Central Park on September 28th. His new album, Paradise Valley, will be released on August 20, 2013.
