Mayer busted out a cover of the Grateful Dead's "Fire On The Mountain" to the roaring delight of the crowd. It wasn't the only cover of the evening as Mayer performed songs by Pete Townshend, Beyonce, and Prince.

Just a day later, Mayer once again dipped into the Grateful Dead universe performing a cover of Jerry Garcia's "Deal".
