The 44-year-old musician temporarily stopped a concert in Los Angeles on Wednesday, February 9, after spotting a seemingly distressed fan in the audience.

According to Page Six, the guitar legend was performing his fan-favorite track "Slow Dancing in a Burning Room" when he stopped the music to see if a seemingly unconscious fan was okay.

He then announced, "I'm going to step off stage for a second," before briefly leaving the stage while medical personnel reportedly rushed to the front of the stage and led the woman out in a wheelchair. Mayer then returned to announce to the crowd that the woman was okay.

"Anyone in the crowd who was worried, I'm told she waved goodbye, so she's OK," he said when he got back on stage. "The system works, thank you very much."

He went back to performing a few minutes later after receiving roaring applause from his fans for his consideration of the ailing audience member.

The "New Light" singer seemed to be taking a page out of Billie Eilish's book, as the young songstress recently stopped one of her own performances to check on a fan who needed medical attention.

During her concert in Atlanta over the weekend, Eilish, 20, seemed to even shade Travis Scott during the ordeal, while quipping, "I wait for people to be OK before I keep going," as OK! reported.

The rapper, 30, has been facing backlash since his Astroworld festival in November of last year, where 10 audience members died and hundreds were injured as the result of a chaotic crowd surge. Many have condemned Scott for not doing enough to help the fans who were screaming for help in the audience as he continued on with his performance.

Scott previously insisted he was not aware of how dire the situation was until much later, although he has already been named in an avalanche of lawsuits claiming that he should have done more once he realized something was clearly wrong in the audience.

As OK! learned at the time, Houston Fire Chief Samuel Peña insisted Scott "absolutely" should have done more to stop the tragedy as the artist had a "responsibility" to keep his fans safe.
