John Mayer, a pop musician known as much for his celebrity as his formidable guitar skills, will play the Fargodome on April 8.

Rob Sobolik, executive director of the Fargodome confirmed the date after it was posted on the concert industry Web site Pollstar.com.

Sobolik said Mayer is "one of those popular performers we've had requests for in the past."

The show will be set up in a half-house configuration allowing for as many as 10,500 seats.

Sobolik said ticket prices and an on-sale date were not available.

Pollstar lists Spearhead singer Michael Franti as the opener.

The 32-year-old Mayer's fourth studio disc, "Battle Studies," comes out Nov. 17.

Mayer has never landed a top 10 hit on the Billboard charts, but "Your Body is a Wonderland," from his 2001 debut "Room for Squares," earned him a Grammy for Best Male pop Vocal Performance.

Though best known as a solo performer, Mayer has paired with a number of prominent blues guitarists, like B.B. King, Buddy Guy and Eric Clapton. In February 2007 Mayer was pictured on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine and named one of "the new guitar gods" and praised as "Slowhand Jr.," a reference to Clapton.

The singer has also been featured in the tabloids and romantically linked to actresses Jennifer Love Hewitt, Minka Kelly, Jennifer Anniston and singer Jessica Simpson.
