Seven-time Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter/musician John Mayer has announced additional dates for his current U.S. tour after a successful summer run, selling out in Los Angeles, Denver, Houston, and Dallas among other territories.

This is the singer’s first tour following a three-year hiatus, and it will include a Nov. 30 show at Oklahoma City’s Chesapeake Energy Arena.

The new tour dates kick off Nov 19 in Moline, Ill., and run through Dec. 17  at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., with Phillip Phillips (“Home,” “Gone, Gone, Gone”) continuing to support for most U.S. shows, according to a news release.

Tickets go on sale for most cities at 10 a.m. Sept. 20 and 21 in respective time zones. Citi cardmembers will have exclusive access to presale tickets with most dates going on sale at 9 a.m. Sept. 17. For full details, please visit www.citiprivatepass.com and www.johnmayer.com .

Ticket prices and on-sale date for the OKC show are to be announced, according to chesapeakearena.com.

Mayer’s new album “Paradise Valley” debuted at No. 1 in 4 countries, and in the Top 10 in another eight countries. The new album also marks his highest career chart entry in Switzerland, Ireland, Austria, Italy, and Belgium. His previous albums — “Room for Squares,” “Heavier Things,” “Continuum,” live album “Where the Light Is,” “Battle Studies” and “Born and Raised” — have sold more than 20 million copies worldwide combined.

Mayer is using the U.S. tour to both raise funds for and heighten awareness of the effects of post- traumatic stress on our military veterans. One dollar from each tour ticket sold in the United States will go to the Northern California Institute for Research and Education. Mayer partnered with NCIRE two years ago to create programs that help veterans return to healthy and productive civilian lives.

He has been honored with seven Grammy Awards and an additional 11 nominations. Mayer has also been included in Time Magazine’s annual Time 100 list of the most influential contemporary thinkers, leaders, artists and entertainers, and twice been featured on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine’s annual “Guitar” issue. Last year, he was honored in Washington, D.C. by the Recording Academy for his philanthropic work on behalf of both U.S. military veterans and young people interested in music.
