Multiple GRAMMY® Award winner Jason Mraz has announced plans for a North American summer tour, joined by his SuperBand and featuring special guest Brett Dennen.

“GOOD VIBES” begins Friday, July 18 at Cleveland, Ohio’s Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica and then continues through early September (see attached itinerary). Fan presales begin Wednesday, February 14 with all remaining tickets released to the general public on Friday, February 16. For complete details and ticket information, please visit jasonmraz.com/tour.

Prior to “GOOD VIBES,” Mraz—who only recently concluded his acclaimed (and twice extended) Broadway debut run in the hit musical, Waitress—is poised to embark on a more intimate live tour, dubbed “An Evening With Jason Mraz, Solo Acoustic.” Those dates begin Thursday, March 8 at Raleigh, North Carolina’s Raleigh Memorial Auditorium and then continue through the month.

Brett Dennen’s new single “Already Gone” from his forthcoming EP Let’s… has been consistently climbing the BDS Radio Charts since its January debut at #23 (most recently reaching #10), and is Dennen’s fastest climbing AAA song of his career.

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 October 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 singles, “I’m Yours” and “I Won’t Give Up”, racked up two Grammy Awards, won the prestigious Songwriter Hall of Fame Hal David Award, has 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, Jason Mraz continually confirms and celebrates music’s myriad forms and miraculous power, inspiring and delighting his countless fans around the world.

Singer-songwriter Brett Dennen is a contemplative introvert by nature, an adventurer by soul, and the great communicator by effect. As someone whose endeavors include a mountain town ski “Lift” series advancing environmental activism in the winter, a beach “Vacationer” series supporting local environment preservation in the summer, and a venture developing wine Rosés, Dennen has found a niche way of incorporating his love of music, the outdoors, and wine into his live tours. His new single “Already Gone” comes from the forthcoming EP Let’s… – available February 16 on Downtown Records. The EP was produced by celebrated musician, songwriter and producer Dan Wilson, best known for his work with Adele, the Dixie Chicks, and Semisonic. Dennen is based in Northern California.
