Jason Mraz Comes To The Peace Center March 10
Multiple Grammy Award winner Jason Mraz has announced plans for a 17-city live tour. The dates - dubbed An Evening With Jason Mraz, Solo Acoustic - begin Thursday, March 8, in Raleigh, N.C. and then continue through the month. The tour will play the Peace Center on Saturday, March 10, at 8 p.m.
Mraz is currently making his Broadway debut in the hit musical Waitress and will appear in the show through Jan. 28. He has also co-written and performed a new original song, "Can't Hold Out On Love," to be featured in the upcoming Warner Bros. feature film Father Figures, arriving in theaters nationwide on Dec. 22.
Mraz recently celebrated the 15th anniversary of his RIAA platinum certified major label debut album, "WAITING FOR MY ROCKET TO COME," with the album's first-time-ever vinyl release. The "WAITING FOR MY ROCKET TO COME" double LP is available now on standard black vinyl at all music retailers carrying vinyl records (see here); an orange vinyl edition is exclusively available via Barnes & Noble. All vinyl editions feature expanded artwork by Robert Fisher and Alison Dyer, plus lyrics and new liner notes by Mraz.
As PEOPLE recently noted, "WAITING FOR MY ROCKET TO COME" launched Mraz "from the Southern California coffee house scene into global stardom and the forefront of contemporary American singer-songwriters." Released Oct. 15, 2002, "the album indeed propelled Mraz to the forefront of contemporary American pop, fueled by a trio of indelible hit singles in "You And I Both," "Curbside Prophet," and the #1 favorite, "The Remedy (I Won't Worry)." The latter single proved Mraz's breakthrough, ascending to the top 15 on Billboard's "Hot 100" while also reaching the top of the "Top 40 Adult Recurrents" chart.
Jason Mraz has quietly amassed a diverse fan-base throughout all parts of the globe. Since getting his start in coffeehouses in San Diego, Mraz has brought his positive message and soulful, folk-pop sound to rapt audiences around the world through his vibrant recordings, humorous live performances, and philanthropic efforts. Along the way, he has earned numerous platinum certifications for his various releases, made pop history with his record-breaking classic single, "I'm Yours," and "I Won't Give Up", racked up two Grammy Awards, won the prestigious Songwriter Hall of Fame Hal David Award, and sold out amphitheaters and arenas across the globe, including sell-outs at The Hollywood Bowl, Madison Square Garden and London's O2 Arena.
A dedicated artist and gentleman farmer, Mraz is first and foremost a committed global citizen. His impassioned social activism and philanthropic efforts span from environmental advocacy to ardent support for human rights. His own Jason Mraz Foundation serves to shine for arts education and the advancement of equality. Through it all, Mraz continually confirms and celebrates music's myriad forms and miraculous power, inspiring and delighting his countless fans around the world.
