Jason Mraz has announced plans for a series of early summer live dates. The dates begin Friday, June 16th at Tucson, AZ’s Centennial Hall and includes both headline shows as well as an eagerly anticipated headline performance at Telluride, CO’s 44th Telluride Bluegrass Festival, slated for Sunday, June 18th. Pre-sales for the newly announced dates get underway on Tuesday, March 28th – for complete details and ticket information, please log on to jasonmraz.com/tour.
The dates see Mraz continuing what he has spent most of the last year doing—emerging from writing and recording to road-test new songs for his upcoming album, as well as celebrating some of his most memorable hits with his family of fans.
The live performances culminate with a very special birthday celebration at Los Angeles, CA’s Hollywood Bowl on Mraz’s birthday, Friday, June 23rd, marking his third headline show at the Bowl following two previous sold out appearances at the world famous venue.
Most recently, Mraz teamed up with participants from LIVE ART–an equally inclusive program supported by the Jason Mraz Foundation for both students with and without disabilities, of all ages, who use performing arts to share messages of acceptance, compassion and empathy–for a moving performance of his classic “I Won’t Give Up” at the Opening Ceremony of the 2017 Special Olympics World Winter Games in Austria.
“The opening ceremony of the Special Olympics World Winter Games was by far the most beautiful live concert experience I’ve ever been a part of,” said Mraz. “I am so honored to have been considered worthy of the task. I made some great new friends and left Schladming in awe; inspired by the athletes, coaches and families from around the world. They made a fan for life.”
Mraz, an ardent advocate of arts education, recently wrote about the vital importance of the arts in a Huffington Post column.
