John Mayer in Manila on May 16

It's official: John Mayer is bringing his Battle Studies Tour 2010 to Manila on May 16.  Barring any unforeseen incident, the concert will be at the SM Mall of Asia Grounds.

I first go wind of this great news from a Twitter post by Tim Yap in February.  Yap posted that Channel V, an Asian music channel, is bringing Mayer on May 15.  At that time, there was no official word on his site yet but there was a big gap between John's last stop in Australia and his next stop in Portugal.  Everybody was crossing hoping the tweet was true.

While waiting for confirmation of his schedule, news broke out about Mayer's racy remarks about his girlfriends and his sexual preference on Playboy Magazine. I guess you have heard or read about his online apologies for said interview.   There was still no word, however, about his stop in the country.

The official announcement came out just yesterday on his website that for the first time ever, John Mayer will have a show in the Philippines.  It will be after his two night stand in Japan.  No information about ticket sales was posted yet so I will have to monitor this one.

I am definitely going to this one.  I didn't see some great foreign acts before because their concerts were at the SM MOA grounds but this one will be an exception.  In fact I am already preparing myself for the concert by filling up my iPod with all the albums of John Mayer.
