John Mayer will be having his one night only gig with 19 year old New Zealand guitarist/singer/songwriter Brooke Fraser (check out www.brookefraser.com) on next Tuesday (NZT) in North Shore Events Centre.
Brooke is the daughter of the former All-Black rugby great Bernie Fraser (maybe it was this connection that enabled her to shoot a MTV with 'Vertical Limit' cameo & 'Once Were Warriors' star Temura Morrison in her debut single - 'Better'). She can seriously learn a lot from John Mayer's sometimes 'obscure' chord style and combinations.
John Mayer needs no introduction to most of you. He is a Grammy winner for 'Room For Squares' which sold millions of copies in the US. Now into his 2nd album 'Heavier Things' which prompts a more electric guitar-based songs.
As for the venue, the North Shore Events Centre at the northern Auckland of is a multi-purpose building that is normally an indoor basketball-netball venue. Tickets from ticktek (NZ only), but they're going out fast.
