Critical reception[edit]

Piet Levy of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel said, "Mayer sounded sublime Saturday, as though his soulful voice had been dipped in honey, from the opening vocals of the rustic Raised track 'Queen of California'."[10] Dan Hyman from Rolling Stone said, "Mayer's voice was the elephant in the room all evening. The singer has taken many songs down into a noticeable lower vocal register – a change-up most noticeable on 'Waiting on the World to Change', during which he forwent all of his falsetto parts. But on the whole singer's voice sounded strong and confident."[11]
