John Mayer Welcomes Bob Weir As Part Of ‘Controlled Danger’ Show With Dave Chappelle


Over the past two nights guitarist John Mayer and comedian Dave Chappelle presented a pair of Controlled Danger concert events at The Fillmore in San Francisco. Mayer played a number of solo songs on Saturday night and brought out Grateful Dead guitarist Bob Weir for “Friend Of The Devil” at one point.

John Mayer kicked off his solo acoustic set with “Who Says” from his Battle Studies LP. He then treated fans to a rendition of “In The Blood” off his latest album and unveiled a cover of “Passionfruit” by Drake. Bob Weir, Mayer’s Dead & Company band mate, emerged next for a duet on the Grateful Dead classic “Friend Of The Devil.” Mayer ended the solo acoustic portion of the evening with “Neon.”

Dave Chappelle followed Mayer’s solo acoustic performance with a set of stand-up that included some jokes about Weir’s appearance according to fan reports. John then came out to provide musical backing as Dave bantered. At one point the pair took requests from the crowd and led sing-a-long versions of John Mellencamp’s “Jack & Diane,” Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin'” and more.
