Jason Mraz Adds New Tour Leg
The second leg kicks off September 14 in Dallas, TX, after a special appearance at Seattle's Bumbershoot Festival on September 6, and runs through October 10, where Mraz will close the tour with a performance at the Hollywood Bowl. Tickets will go on sale July 11th, for purchasing details visit www.jasonmraz.com.
The San Diego-based songsmith has partnered with The VH1 Save The Music Foundation to donate a portion of every ticket sold to the organization, which is dedicated to the restoration of instrumental music programs and raising awareness about the importance of music in a child's education.
Also in the spirit of the "Gratitude Café Tour," Mraz will offer his fans a free download of the video for "Make It Mine" through his website (www.jasonmraz.com) for seven days starting today.
Certified 4x platinum, Mraz's smash single, "I'm Yours," is currently the fifth best selling digital single of all time. To celebrate the success (and evolution) of the song, Mraz will release, "Yours Truly: The I'm Yours Collection," a digital EP. The EP will include four versions of "I'm Yours": the original demo version of the song; the album version, which topped four separate radio formats; a live version of the song recorded in Tokyo, featuring Japanese band Kimaguren; and a reggae mix of the song.
The follow-up to "I'm Yours," "Lucky," a duet with Colbie Caillat, recently reached the one million mark in sales. A digital version of "Suerte," the Spanish-language version of "Lucky," featuring Ximena Sarinana will be available at all digital retailers starting tomorrow.
In other news, Mraz recently received the Songwriter Hall of Fame's Hal David Starlight Award in New York City at their 40th Anniversary Gala. He also received nominations for three Teen Choice Awards, including Choice Music: Hookup for "Lucky," Choice Music: Artist, and Choice Music: Album by a Male Artist for We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things.
