Tuesday Tunes-Day Volume IX

That Summer Sensation
By: Heather MacDonald

Hi all, Heather here! This week I’m bringing you Tuesday Tunes-Day from the Southland, as that’s where the fabulous John Mayer was this weekend. His performance was simply too amazing to overlook on Lé Gigi Ouf  The Blog!

The leading man, Mr. J Mayer graced the Hollywood Bowl – a venue that serves as the pulse of Angelino’s hearts in the warm summer months. Nestled in the Hollywood Hills and directly below the Hollywood sign, the bowl’s acoustics fill the air with booming melodies and you simply can’t help but feeling like this is what “making it” in the industry is all about.

After grabbing my best pal's, Mary Bell {left} & Marissa {center} and making a quick pit stop at Trader Joes to get the necessary picnic essentials, we were off to the show! As if the music wasn't enough, the venue’s picnic garden sets a great tone for the entire night and their willingness to let you stroll in with two-buck Chuck in tow make you contemplate permanently moving there.

When the show began, that’s when the real magic happened. John Mayer strolled on stage with legendary pianist, Brad Mehldau, and together they covered The Verve’s “Bittersweet Symphony” with pure swagger. See what I’m talkin’ about directly below :)

Following Mayer’s piano-filled entrance, he held strong throughout the rest of the night with songs like “Why Georgia”, “Heartbreak Warfare”and “Stop this Train” to name a few. In between songs, he told jokes and humble stories that touched the heartstrings of the crowd.

It was truly a night to remember! Many thanks to Gigi for letting me share the experience as a guest blogger. In parting, I leave you the wise words John Mayer left us with Sunday night,

“…it’s ok to crash and burn, just live and learn.”

Xoxo, Heather
