Jason Mraz Makes Chart History


08/20/2009
.
(PR) Jason Mraz has entered the record books with his history-making hit single, "I'm Yours." Described by the San Diego-based singer/songwriter as "his happy little hippie song," the track has spent a remarkable 70 weeks on Billboard's "Hot 100," shattering the record previously held by LeAnn Rimes' 1998 smash, "How Do I Live." "I'm Yours" now ranks as the longest-running song in the chart's 51-year history.

Certified 4x platinum by the RIAA for sales in excess of 4 million, "I'm Yours" is currently the third best-selling digital single of all time. Initially released to radio back in February 2008, the Grammy-nominated track from Jason's RIAA platinum-certified third album, "WE SING. WE DANCE. WE STEAL THINGS.", made history earlier this year as the first song ever to top the charts at four pop radio formats: CHR/Top 40, Triple A, Hot AC, and AC (where it held the #1 slot for 16 weeks, the most of any artist in 2009).

Mraz has also announced the upcoming release of an all-new live CD/DVD, "JASON MRAZ'S BEAUTIFUL MESS – LIVE FROM EARTH." Due in stores and at all online retailers on November 10th, the album and DVD were recorded just last week as Jason's blockbuster "Gratitude Café Tour" hit Chicago's Charter One Pavilion. Full details – including a complete tracklisting – will be revealed shortly.

The first leg of the acclaimed "Gratitude Café Tour" is set to wrap up later this month at the Ironstone Amphitheatre in Murphys, California (see attached itinerary). The tour will resume on September 14th at the Nokia Theatre Prairie in Dallas, Texas, and run through an October 10th sold-out finale at Hollywood, California's world-famous Hollywood Bowl.

In addition to the "Gratitude Café Tour," Mraz has also slated a number of upcoming festival performances, including sets at San Francisco's Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival on August 29th; Seattle's Bumbershoot Festival on September 6th; and Phoenix's Fall Frenzy Festival on September 18th. What's more, Jason will be appearing alongside Willie Nelson, Neil Young, and Dave Matthews at the 2009 Farm Aid benefit concert, set for October 4th at St. Louis' Verizon Wireless Amphitheater. Following those dates, Jason will embark on his first South American tour in late November. More details on that will be announced soon.
