John Mayer will be strutting his stuff on stage at Shea's Theater in Buffalo, NY on Saturday, April 21st, 2012.  Tickets go on sale Friday, March 2nd at 10AM.

We are excited to announce the first dates of the 2012 Spring Tour.  All tickets for most shows will go on sale this Friday, March 2nd and Saturday, March 3rd. In order to accommodate as many concertgoers as possible and provide an equal opportunity for purchasing tickets, there will be no pre-sale ticketing period. Please find details on this and other new ticketing policies below or at

Kacey Musgraves will support all shows unless otherwise noted.  Ticket onsale times and more information for each show are posted on the John Mayer tour page.


Many of the venues on the tour will utilize Paperless Ticketing for all seats.  Instead of receiving tickets before the event, the credit card used to make the purchase will serve as your ticket.  Paperless tickets can be bought and sold via Ticketmaster TicketExchange (resale prices for tickets can be no more than 20% above face value).  It is very important to review all of the policies of Paperless Ticketing before completing your purchase- details and helpful FAQ can be found here.

VIP Seats Restrictive Ticketing Comments

VIP Seats is against the use of Restricted Tickets!  Ticketing giant TicketMaster, Paciolan and Vertix use Paperless Ticketing to control the lucrative secondary market.  TicketMaster has been known for outrageous service charges, convenience fees and shipping charges and now they want to restrict where you can buy and resell your tickets.  For more information you can visit

Doubt us?  Just google "Ticketmaster lawsuits".  There appears to be a conflict of interest when a company operates in both the primary and secondary markets and furthers claims about the negative implications on Ticketmaster's monoloply on ordinary consumers. See this story in Rolling Stone Magazine regarding Ticketmaster's alleged deceptive practices.
