Jason Mraz - One New Zealand Show

Jason Mraz, internationally revered recording artist, has announced plans for a special international tour, an extraordinary itinerary that will see the Grammy Award-winning tunesmith visiting North America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia and New Zealand with one very special show at the Civic Theatre, Auckland on Tuesday 15th November.  This will be the only show in New Zealand and is certain to be a unique opportunity to see the US troubadour in a stripped back, sensory mode.  More than just a concert tour, Mraz’ worldwide journey will see him celebrating music’s lasting power to inspire change and help others through global citizenship.

The majority of the tour, and this very special New Zealand show, will find Mraz teaming up with his long-time friend percussionist Noel “Toca” Rivera, for a series of acoustic dates celebrating the tenth anniversary of their independently released classic, “Live at Java Joe's.”  The schedule got underway with a performance at the Musicians United For Safe Energy (MUSE) benefit concert slated for August 7th at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California.  Proceeds from the event – which featured a star-studded line-up that included Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, Tom Morello, Crosby, Stills & Nash, The Doobie Brothers, and many others – have gone to support Japan disaster relief efforts and organisations worldwide working to promote safe, alternative, non-nuclear energy.
