John Mayer will embark on his first solo acoustic tour this spring. The trek features stops at arenas across North America spanning March 11 through April 14.

Mayer will “lean heavily on his acoustic guitar work” with plans to sprinkle in performances in piano and electric guitar each night. The run harkens back to the early days of the Connecticut-bred musician’s career when he started “with only a guitar and a microphone.” Look for setlists to consist of “old songs” and “songs that you haven’t heard yet that I’ll be road testing” according to a note from John Mayer on Instagram.

The tour begins on March 11 with a concert at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. John Mayer will make his way out west via the Midwest and Colorado. Boston, New York City, Toronto, Nashville, Atlanta, Denver and Seattle are among the cities where Mayer will bring the month-long excursion before concluding the tour at Kia Arena outside Los Angeles on April 14.

John Mayer’s calendar is filling up as the acoustic tour comes in addition to Dead & Company's “Final Tour.” Support act for select shows on the solo tour include Lizzy McAlpine and Alec Benjamin.

Tickets for the unplugged trek go on sale to the general public next Friday, February 3 at 9 a.m. local time. Purchase John Mayer tickets via Ticketmaster. A presale runs Wednesday, February 1 at 9 a.m. local time through Thursday, February 2 at 10 p.m. local time. Registration for access to the Seated presale is currently underway at JohnMayer.com.
