Multiple GRAMMY® Award winner Jason Mraz has announced plans for a 6-city tour of Asia, commencing May 2019.
Following a recent one-off show at Singapore’s National Stadium (October 27th 2018), Mraz will kick off the whirlwind set of shows in the Philippines capital of Manila on May 8th, bringing his brand of soulful folk-pop to Shanghai, Singapore, Hong Kong and Bangkok, rounding off the performances at the Taipei Arena on May 25th 2019.
Jason Mraz has amassed a diverse fan-base around the globe, bringing his positive message and folk-pop sound to rapt audiences 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 singles, “I’m Yours” and “I Won’t Give Up”, won two Grammy Awards, received the prestigious Songwriter Hall of Fame Hal David Award, and sold out amphitheatres and arenas across the globe (including sell-outs at The Hollywood Bowl, Madison Square Garden, and London’s O2 Arena).
On playing for his Asian fans, Jason says: “I enjoy travelling to and performing for listeners in Asia. I feel a sense of gratitude and enthusiasm unlike anywhere else in the world, which makes a performance feel more like an event than a recital. The audience participation in Asia is harmonic and supersonic. I am thrilled to return, reconnect and re-experience the joy.”
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.
