Does John Mayer have many Irish Fans?

Only people I know that like him are me and the people I introduced his music too. I love to see him get some play on the radios here too.

Also, has he ever played here before or is there any sign of him doing so...

My younger sister introduced me to his music. A lot of her friends of the 16-18 year old bracket really like him too. He is brilliant!

He's a great blues guitarist when doing that kind of stuff. Other than that though, he's very meh.

Yep, he played in Vicar Street a few years back, maybe 2005 or 2006? It was a really good gig. He also played in Whelan's a couple of years before that. He's playing a few gigs in the UK in January I think, hopefully when he does a bigger European tour he'll include Ireland.

I've been into his music since 2006. Love his stuff. I can count the people I know who like him on one hand, he's still relatively unknown here. I flew to Birmingham to see him last year, and have already gotten my ticket for his January UK tour.

I saw him last night in the Metro theatre in Sydney, it was AMAZING. Small enough venue, a bit like Vicar Street. He played about 5 or 6 songs from the new album, can't wait till it comes out, it's sounding good.
