    I was having the same issue about getting John Mayer tickets. I'm not into his music but have been checking out Franti for years now. I love the small settings that Franti plays as well as the festivals but was a little disappointed when I learn his dates announced were opening for Mayer. I still haven't decided to get if I will get tickets or not. However, I noticed how much crap Franti was getting regarding his decision to open for him and I think it sucks that a lot of fans aren't supporting him. It is an amazing opportunity for Michael to get his music out there and for people to realize what amazing energy and talent he has.

    wow i wud have thought better of franti's fans. ugh. and certainly the exposure from this tour is gonna help him and i'll be living proof of that statement when the mayer tour rolls into my town. IMO a great double bill!

    How so?  I don't see anyone ever saying he's amazing or better than "fill in the blank".  He is very good.

    He's a great guitar player.  I just don't like what he plays.  I'm a little surprised at his tour announcement in that he seems to be booking large arenas that I would never have guessed he will sell out.

    But what do I know?

    john plays jerry...very few people can play/emulate jerry. pleasing 50000 hippies at a show is very hard to do and john is winning them over(imo)

    I know Continuum is a fantastic album, but I don't think his Born and Raised album gets enough credit. Such a great album with great songwriting. It's easy to feel uneasy about his hit or miss first two pop albums, but Continuum and Born and Raised are fantastic albums. I especially like the production on Born and Raised. It's a really warm sounding record. It honestly feels like a 70's Neil Young or CSNY album. Amazing harmonies on that album.
