Billboard magazine reports that John May is ready for his upcoming tour even after his scary journey this past year. After breaking up with Katy Perry, he went through getting surgery to repair his vocal cords. John says:

"The greatest gift I have in my life is the opportunity to play again, which is also the opportunity to dream again," he says. "My dreams were in escrow, but when I found out this thing in my throat had receded, the most exciting thing for me was having a second chance at a new life. My dreams have come true twice. That's really cool."

Opening for John at most of his shows is American Idol sensation, Phillip Phillips.
