UPDATE: John Mayer coming to the St. Pete Times Forum
Who says John Mayer isn't coming to Tampa? Not John Mayer, that's for sure.
The popsmith, bluessmith and occasional stand-up comedysmith will bring his tour to the St. Pete Times Forum on Feb. 5, according to his Web site. Ticket prices haven't been announced yet, but they're scheduled to go onsale Dec. 5.
It'll be the first time Mayer has played the Forum. For the past three years, he's performed at the Ford Amphitheatre. BUT DID YOU KNOW, Mayer played, of all things, Gasparilla back in 2002 -- opening for Better Than Ezra, no less? He'll miss Gasparilla by less than a week this time around, but still: Save some beads for ol' Johnny Boy, just to let him know we remember the days when he wasn't a starlet-squiring superdupermegastar. We're confident he will appreciate the gesture.
