Review: John Mayer charms Tampa's 1-800-Ask-Gary Amphitheatre
About 12,500 fans turned out to see Mayer in person, and despite Mayer's rep for, um, frankness, they seemed to hang on his every word:
The girls were here to sing along to the hits, and he'd give them those over the course of a smart setlist: No Such Thing, Waiting on the World to Change, Half of My Heart. But he and his killer seven-piece band had a far better time indulging in the extended burn of Jimi Hendrix's Voodoo Chile the jazzbo noodling of Do You Know Me and the blues-guitar coda of Slow Dancing in a Burning Room, which turned the venue into a cozy cocoon of l-o-v-e.
