RENO, NV (Feb. 12, 2018) – Multiple GRAMMY® Award winner Jason Mraz has today announced plans for a North American summer tour, joined by his SuperBand and featuring special guest Brett Dennen. “GOOD VIBES” will make a stop at the Reno Events Center on Tuesday, Sept. 11. Tickets will go on sale this Friday, Feb. 16 via Ticketmaster.com.
Mraz concluded his acclaimed (and twice extended) Broadway debut run in the hit musical, “Waitress” just last night.
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 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.
