After listening post-concert to the studio recordings of Mayer’s concert playlist, it occurred to me that I insufficiently captured how powerful was his delivery Monday night. 

There’s only one other performer whose live performance radically altered my understanding and appreciation for his music in such a way.  It was in 1984 and, unlike with Mayer, I was already a big fan before attending his concert.  But the guy’s live performance left me a fanatical devotee of his talent.  He was just hitting the mainstream then, but everybody around knows who he is now.  His name is “Bruce”. 

Mayer was just that good.
