Two days before John Mayer heads out on his summer tour, which begins July 2 in Milwaukee, WI, fans can watch the five-time Grammy winner on the big screen when his “Where The Light Is: John Mayer Live in Los Angeles” hits theaters across the country. “Where The Light Is: John Mayer Live in Los Angeles” features Mayer performing an acoustic set, a full-band “Continuum” set and a rare John Mayer Trio set. The concert was recorded in December, 2007, at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles and directed by Danny Clinch.
“John Mayer’s gift for mixing genres and styles and for appealing to such a wide cross-section of fans will come to life on the big screen,” Jonathan Dern, president of The Bigger Picture, a leader in the digital distribution of movies, said in a statement. “Everyone who comes out to see him in digital cinema will enjoy an incredible view and the best sound available.”
“Where The Light Is: John Mayer Live in Los Angeles” opens in theaters June 30, and it becomes available in stores on July 1 as a 2-CD, DVD & Blu-Ray package. The release will be Mayer’s first since “Continuum” was released in September 2006. The special Columbia Records release will feature Mayer’s own hits as well as versions of blues and rock favorites like Jimi Hendrix’s “Wait Until Tomorrow,” Tom Petty’s “Free Falling” and Ray Charles’ “I Don’t Need No Doctor.”
Mayer’s “Continuum” earned him Grammy Awards for Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Male Pop Vocal Performance (“Waiting on the World to Change”). His latest summer tour will feature Colbie Caillat, Brett Dennen, Paramore and OneRepublic on various dates.
