John Mayer launched Battle Studies tour with a concert at Bank Atlantic Center in Sunrise, Florida on February 4, 2010.
In an effort to help charities, the singer donated front row tickets to Tickets-for-Charity® for its Charitable Sale™ program where fans can purchase VIP front-row seats to see the the singer-songwriter, with popular newcomer, Michael Franti & Spearhead, and an autographed event poster.
"We're thrilled to be working with John Mayer again on his Battle Studies Tour to offer fans a great way to access the absolute best seats in the house -- and an easy way to support the causes they care about most. It's always amazing to see how Artists, fans and charities can come together like this," says Kate Brandeis, Director of Communications for Tickets-for-Charity.
Mayer's ticket donation comes on the heels of a $500,000 donation to earthquake victims in Haiti, a free impromptu concert for 500 University of South Carolina students on Tuesday and the release of a Public Service Announcement featuring his "The Heart of Life" song on Wednesday. He is also donating proceeds from his online store to the American Red Cross Haiti Earthquake Relief Effort.
The Charitable Sale program supports Military Outreach Ministry’s Camp Pendleton, NCIRE - The Veterans Health Research Institute, and many other respected charities.
