John Mayer Performs ‘Wild Blue’ On ‘Colbert’

Guitarist John Mayer returned to promoting his excellent 2021 album Sob Rock between legs of Dead & Company tour. Mayer presented the live debut of Sob Rock standout “Wild Blue” on Thursday’s The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.

Sob Rock is a throwback to Yacht Rock and the 1980s hits of Dire Straits and Robert Palmer with a heaping dose of the blues Mayer is known for thrown in for good measure. “Wild Blue” perfectly straddles those lines. John was joined by a mixture of musicians from his last touring band and those who contributed to Sob Rock for Thursday’s performance.

Dead & Company kicks off fall tour in West Palm Beach on October 6. John Mayer will hit the road in support of Sob Rock early next year.
