But will you hear those songs while the performer is in a bear costume?
Probably not. But the folks who were at a memorable October 2006 concert at the Coral Sky Amphitheatre will never forget it.
We know Sheryl Crow won’t forget it.
On that concert tour, her opening act would come out to duet with her on her hit, “My Favorite Mistake.”
But on this night, the singer came out in a bear costume. With his guitar in paw.
Critic Leslie Gray Streeter wrote that Crow deadpanned, “The only bear I ever loved. I don’t know how to follow that.”
The bear? None other than John Mayer. According to online sites, he’d been frequenting the bear costume during their joint tour, but never on stage until that night. It was such a memorable goof that Billboard named it one of The 10 Greatest Musical Pranks Ever.
Here’s a video snippet from YouTube:
Mayer will probably put on a fine show on Saturday night. You’ll just have to bear it without the costume.
