John Mayer Dedicates South Korean Gig to Ferry Disaster Victims
John Mayer showed sympathy for the victims of a recent ferry accident in South Korea when he performed in the country on Tuesday night, May 6. According to Hollywood Reporter, the 36-year-old singer appeared on the stage in Seoul wearing a yellow ribbon and announced that all the songs performed during the concert would be dedicated to those who lost their lives in the April tragedy.
During that night's concert, Katy Perry's ex-boyfriend performed a number of his hit songs, including "Your Body Is a Wonderland", "Gravity" and "Vultures". He also announced that all proceeds from merchandise sales would go to relief aid for the disaster.
Mayer's concert was the first entertainment event that took place in Seoul since the accident that killed 268 people, many of which were students who were on a high school trip. Concerts, festival and film premieres were canceled and album releases were postponed as the country mourned the victims.
