John Mayer Tour In The Works As Singer Announces Upcoming Gigs

Good news, John Mayer fans -- for the first time in three years, Mayer has plans to hit the road for a cross-country tour.

Mayer will tour to promote his 2012 album, "Born and Raised," Billboard reports. The album performed well for Mayer, reaching No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

Mayer originally had plans to tour in early 2012, for the album's release. The singer abandoned that idea, however, when he was diagnosed with a granuloma on his vocal cord, explaining that he needed time off because, a "granuloma forms and continues to snowball because it's in a spot where the vocal cords hit together and there's no way to really give it a chance to heal without a good stretch of time and some pretty intensive treatment."

He underwent surgery to treat the condition, telling Billboard this week, "I spent so long being terrorized, I had all but shut down the fantasy of playing music again --- just so I could, you know, survive."

Now that Mayer is fully recovered, he will hit cities across the U.S., with added stops in Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro, before wrapping the tour in Los Angeles on Oct. 5.
