Last night, Dec. 4, 2013, the Bridgestone Arena was packed with audience members enjoying the music of John Mayer and opener Phillip Phillips. The duo kicked off the U.S. portion of the Born and Raised World Tour on Nov. 11 and it will continue in select cities until Dec. 17.

Phillips started the evening with a great performance, including his hit songs "Home" and "Gone, Gone, Gone." After a short intermission Mayer took the stage, performing past favorites and new songs from his newly launched album Paradise Valley (Columbia Records) which has debuted at #1 in 4 countries, and in the Top 10 in another 8 countries.

Mayer, a seven time Grammy winner, is using the U.S. tour to both raise funds for and heighten awareness of the effects of post- traumatic stress on our military veterans. One dollar from each tour ticket sold in the United States will go to the Northern California Institute for Research and Education.

Mayer partnered with NCIRE two years ago to create programs that help veterans return to healthy and productive civilian lives. Last year, he was honored in Washington, D.C. by the Recording Academy for his philanthropic work on behalf of both U.S. military veterans and young people interested in music.
