SiriusXM and Pandora have announced that they will kick off Super Bowl weekend in Los Angeles with a Small Stage Series concert by John Mayer at the Hollywood Palladium on Wednesday, February 9th. The free event will be hosted by Mayer’s longtime friend and noted TV host, Andy Cohen.
In addition to a live performance featuring songs from his latest LP, Sob Rock, and the rest of his extensive catalog, Mayer will sit down with Cohen for a live interview about his music, his upcoming tour, and more.
Fans at the Small Stage Series show will receive complimentary t-shirts designed by John Mayer (while supplies last) and stadium-regulated clear tote bags for use during Super Bowl weekend in L.A. Attendees will also be treated to live pre-show entertainment and will be invited to strike a pose in various “photo moments” situated within the venue.
