In case you missed it: American singer-songwriter, John Mayer, has announced his World Tour for 2019, which begins in Australia and Asia.
The Grammy-winner took to social media on December 11, saying "World Tour 2019 begins in Australia and Asia. An entire evening together, playing two sets of music with more songs in rotation than ever before."

Mayer is kicking off his world tour on March 23 in Auckland, New Zealand before making his way to Australia, where he will be performing Brisbane on March 25 and Melbourne on March 27.
He's expected to start the Asia leg of his tour in Singapore on April 1, followed by Bangkok on April 3, and Indonesia on April 5. He'll then continue on to Hong Kong on April 8, and two performances in Tokyo on April 10 and 11.
While the rest of Asia rejoices at the announcement, many Pinoy fans were disappointed that Manila is not on the list of stops for the Asia leg of the tour.

Hello @JohnMayer!! Hope you can add another date for Manila?? We’d REALLY love for you to come back here ❤️💛💙— ⚠️ UNDER CONSTRUCTION ⚠️ (@TanjMahal) December 12, 2018
The last time John Mayer performed in the Philippines was in 2010 for his one-night concert at the SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds. With the number of tweets and comments requesting his return, it's clear that fans are still holding out hope that Manila will be added to the roster.
In the meantime, we'll leave this here.
