Fresh off some recent questionable commentary on feminism, yet another successful summer of touring with Dead and Company and a busy few days of guest gigs around Lockn’ in Virginia last month, virtuoso guitarist John Mayer is coming to Baltimore to play an acoustic set.
The Oct. 7 show at The Modell Lyric—a strong candidate to sell out—is the latest installment of Maryland-based Paul Reed Smith Guitars’ annual One Cause benefit concert, which have raised millions for the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center. Mayer follows other rock greats who’ve headlined the benefit in recent years, including Journey, the Doobie Brothers, Carlos Santana and Paul Rodgers.
Tickets went on sale today at noon, per The Lyric’s website. It appears they’re going fast, with less than two dozen of the balcony-level seats ($100) left along with a limited number of orchestra-area ones ($225), as of press time. For the bluesy guitarist’s flush super fans, there are few VIP tickets remaining for seats in the first couple rows, directly in front of the stage.
