A Touching Winter Tour Summary,Video and Closing Statement From John Mayer

After concluding his very thoughtful remarks, which included a vow containing lyrics from the James Brown classic "Talkin Loud and Sayin Nothin" which he blogged about several years ago, John disarmingly asks "See you this summer?"

I am sure many of his fans will eagerly await a return of their incredible Winter Tour 2010 experiences.

Below is a video along with inspiring and perspective heightening remarks John made on his One Forty Plus blog yesterday,April 14, 2010 summing up the tour:

Greetings from the land of decompression…

The Battle Studies winter tour is a wrap!

As a thank you to everyone who came out to a show on this tour, my friend 13th Witness put together a little video memoir of the times we had on the road.

To those who came out…It’s safe to say I had some great times and some not-so-great times on this run. Every second on stage was an uplifting and beautiful experience for me, as I hope it was for you. My new favorite part of playing shows is looking around and watching you. It’s impossible to take a second of this for granted when I can see you letting loose and dancing and singing along and getting to watch that weight on your shoulders lift for 2 hours.

Everything in my life seems to happen in multiples of 1,000. The good happens 1,000 times greater and the not-so-good seems to follow that math as well. But the most amazing part of working in those multiples is getting to meet so many different types of people who come to my shows. I have met fans who tell me their stories of how my music got them through unthinkably tough times, and those who are celebrating the best times in their lives with me.

The days of my “talkin’ loud and sayin’ nothing” are over. I have been given a big voice that reaches so many different walks of life, and I never want to lose sight of that.

Thanks for standing not only in front of me, but also by my side…

See you this Summer?
