Annual John Mayer Holiday Charity Revue
Charity concert by John Mayer

The Annual John Mayer Holiday Charity Revue began in December 2007.

First revue (2007)[edit]


The first event was a charity concert performance held by American musician John Mayer on December 8, 2007. The performance consisted of three sets, beginning with Mayer performing solo on an acoustic guitar, followed by a performance with the John Mayer Trio, with the trio's members Steve Jordan and Pino Palladino. The third and final set of the concert featured Mayer's full touring band. The performance is set to become an annual event with a similar structure occurring every year. The concert was held at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles. The charities supported by the event included Toys for Tots, Inner City Arts, and the Los Angeles Mission.[1] The performance was recorded on both audio and video. The resulting video was directed by Danny Clinch[2] and was released with the title Where the Light Is on both DVD and Blu-ray disc.[3]

Second revue (2008)[edit]


The second Annual Holiday Charity Revue was held at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles on December 6, 2008. Proceeds from the event were donated to the local non-profit organizations Toys for Tots and the Los Angeles Food Bank. Concert attendees were encouraged to bring an unwrapped toy with a value of $10 or more. British singer-songwriter Adele opened up for him that night. The concert was named On His Own, because Mayer performed the whole concert alone with the assistance of a drum machine and a recorder to overdub his guitar.
