“YES!” marks what is perhaps the most unexpected and accomplished collection of the San Diego-based troubadour’s already extraordinary career. Highlighted by the first single, “Love Someone,” the album – which finds Mraz teaming up with his longtime friends, Raining Jane, debuted #1 on the sales charts in 46 territories around the world. “YES!” was also #1 on the HMV Hong Kong album chart.
In 2014, Mraz has made a conscious choice to perform in venues smaller than the usual amphitheatres/arenas with several multi-day residencies, including an all-borough, six-show stint in New York City, and has selected a number of historic theatres and concert halls such as London’s Royal Albert Hall, Paris’ Casino de Paris, Amsterdam’s Royal Theatre Carré, Frankfurt’s Alte Oper, and Hamburg’s Laeiszhalle. Mraz now looks forward to getting to Asia for more shows. For up-to-the-minute information, please log on to jasonmraz.com/tour.
