John Mayer will join Dave Chappelle for 'Controlled Chaos' next week in Atlanta


BY MELISSA RUGGIERI/AJC Music Scene

John Mayer and Dave Chappelle will have a very busy June 13.

Earlier in the evening, Chappelle will perform one of his bazillion shows scheduled at the Tabernacle , while Mayer will wield his guitar with Dead & Company at Lakewood Amphitheatre.

At midnight, the pair will take the stage together at the Coca-Cola Roxy for “Controlled Danger.”

Tickets for the show will go on sale at 10 a.m. June 9 via www.ticketmaster.com and by calling 1-800-745-3000. Tickets are $103 for general admission seats and $153 for reserved seats.

The pair has brought this music/comedy hybrid to several cities around the country. As well, Mayer  made many appearances on "Chappelle's Show" (see a clip below) during its run.

As is commonplace at Chappelle performances, no cellphones, cameras or recording devices will be allowed into the venue. Upon arrival, all phones and smart watches will be placed in Yondr pouches that will be unlocked at the end of the show (guests maintain possession throughout). Anyone caught using a cellphone in the venue will be immediately ejected.
