Urban and Mayer To Reunite Live Onstage

John Mayer and Keith Urban on "CMT Crossroads."

Keith Urban and John Mayer have announced that their summer tour plans will intersect on August 28 for a special live performance together at The Gorge in  Spokane, Washington. A pre-sale window via CMT.com will run from May 3 at 8:00 AM CT through May 7 at 8:00 PM CT. Tickets will become available to the public on Saturday, May 8th at 8”00 AM CT.

Fans will also have the opportunity to purchase tickets before the general public exclusively offered by each artists by visiting www.JohnMayer.com and www.KeithUrban.net. Both artist pre-sales begin on Saturday, May 1 at 8:00 AM CT.

Last January, Mayer and Urban met for the first time in Nashville last January for the taping of a CMT Crossroads special. After just hours of rehearsal time, the two Grammy Award-winning musicians took to the stage to collaborate on Urban’s hits “If Ever Could I Love,” “‘Til Summer Comes Around” and “Sweet Thing.”  The duo traded off when Urban backed Mayer on his “Perfectly Lonely” and “Gravity.”

CMT Crossroads was the first time I performed with Keith but the creative rapport was there right away,” said Mayer. “I’m looking forward to performing together again and I hope it’s one of many opportunities to work together in the future.”

“I had the best time playing with John on CMT Crossroads. There’s a  certain simpatico between us as guitar players that, I think, comes from sharing the same desire to express the unwritten. Playing together at the Gorge will be like  adding a musical score to the most magnificent setting in a film.”

Both musicians are renowned as songwriters, guitar players and vocalists, and their seamless collaborations can be seen when their CMT Crossroads special airs on Friday, June 18 at 8:00 p.m. CT on CMT.
