John Mayer Scheduled To Perform Acoustic Set At Benefit Concert
Each year Paul Reed Smith Guitars hosts the One Night One Show One Cause benefit concert with proceeds going towards Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center. The 2018 benefit will feature an acoustic set by John Mayer.
One Night One Show One Cause ’18 will take place at The Modell Lyric in Baltimore on October 7. Tickets went on sale via Ticketmaster and immediately sold out. PRS Guitars has supported the Living with Cancer Resource Program at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center since 2000. This year’s benefit is presented by Knott Realty Group.
Over the past 19 years, the annual PRS One Night, One Show, One Cause benefit concert has raised significant funds for the Living with Cancer Resource Program at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center, which offers supportive, no-cost programming and education to cancer patients and their families as they undertake the most arduous chapter of their lives. By partnering with this critically important program, artists like John Mayer and Paul Reed Smith are bringing much-needed attention to the fact that cancer medicine isn’t solely about our quest for a cure – it is also about pursuing and delivering the best possible treatments while never losing sight of the person in each patient. It is about providing the most cutting-edge care to all of the facets of a patient’s life and the lives of their loved ones, addressing their inevitable concerns about topics like finances, nutrition, palliative care, and caretaker wellness while also doing all that we can to defeat their disease.
As reported, Mayer performed and sat for an interview on last night’s episode of ABC late night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live. Mayer played a number of songs he dubbed “songs that I haven’t played for a while yet mean a lot to me” in addition to the song that aired, “New Light.” After “New Light” was “Love On The Weekend.” Next, the Dead & Company guitarist fit a cover of the Grateful Dead’s “Fire On The Mountain” within a sandwich with his own “Queen Of California.” The short set came to a close with a fan favorite from Continuum “Slow Dancing In A Burning Room” and “Dear Marie” (with a sick rare John Mayer harmonica solo).
