This afternoon’s webcast is the last of spur-of-the-moment Internet events for Mayer. One hour before his Raleigh, N.C., show, Mayer announced he would stream live his first song of the evening, resulting in 67,000 tuning in. The following night Mayer’s management tweeted that part of that evening’s show in Virginia Beach would be streamed live, attracting 9,000 viewers within 10 minutes.

Today’s backstage tour / soundcheck streams on Ustream, Mayer’s website and his Facebook page. Just click here, here and here, respectively.
