A few celebrities have been affected by the strain, and quite a lot of shows had to be canceled or rescheduled. However, the singer stated that his concert would go on as scheduled.
Mayer is presently on the road for his “Sob Rock Tour;” he revealed the sad news about his drummer before his performance at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Promises Fans Special Performance Following Drummer’s Positive COVID Test
Above a black and white photo of his concert’s venue, Mayer tweeted, “This afternoon, our drummer tested positive for COVID-19. Tonight’s concert @TheGarden will go on as scheduled, with a very special presentation.”
He concluded the tweet with good wishes for the drummer’s health and anticipation of seeing his fans at the show.
The speed at which the strain has been spreading is increasing, and a few fans took to the tweet’s comment section to demand that someone stop the virus strain.
Several other fans were amazed by what Mayer and his crew achieved under the circumstances. They commended him on how excellent and heartfelt the performances were.
PEOPLE reported that Mayer handled most of the concert’s acoustic, and then he surprised his fans with Questlove’s entrance to take over the drums.
“Sob Rock Tour” began on February 17 in Albany, New York, and would end in April; by then, Mayer would have spread his music across the country.
The tour was named after his eighth studio album, which was released last July and later got the number one spot on the Billboard Top Album Sales Chart.
Since the pandemic began, Mayer had his first solo show earlier this month, where he paused his performance to show concern to a fan.
The show was SiriusXM and Pandora’s Small Stage Series concert at the Hollywood Palladium. He noticed a woman looked passed out in the crowd as he performed, so he stepped off the stage to check on her.
He called for the paramedics who attended to the situation and returned to the stage a few minutes later to explain the occurrence to his fans in attendance, assuring them the woman was okay.
Mayer further appreciated those who graced the show, including several renowned celebs like Heidi Klum, Vanessa Hudgens, Olivia Culpo, Cole Tucker, Jeff Ross, and Tom Kaulitz. His fans’ attendance meant a lot to the star.
The Grammy-Winning Artiste Honored His Late Friend, Bob Saget’s Memory
Earlier in January, The Blast reported that Mayer has been performing decent acts in honor of the late Bob Saget, who was found dead in Ritz-Carlton hotel in Orlando after his performance in Jacksonville, Florida.
Mayer and the comedian, Jeff Ross, picked up their deceased friend’s car from LAX while the-44-year-old handled the costs of flying Saget’s body back to Los Angeles in a private plane.
The talented musician also planned a fundraising campaign as a tribute to Saget. He collaborated with Jeremy Dean and Maggie Enterrios, who made a hoodie in honor of the late comedian.
The hoodie costs $54.99 per piece, and all earnings from the sales would be sent to The Scleroderma Research Foundation, Saget’s most-loved charity.
When he was alive, the 65-year-old was determined in raising awareness and funds for his favorite foundation, and this made Mayer create the clothing idea to keep his friend’s memory and continue the fight for a cure.
