All-American singer-songwriter Jason Mraz will be returning to Seoul in May to hold his sixth live show.

Mraz, who started his career playing in coffee houses, released his first commercial debut album “Waiting for My Rocket to Come” in 2002, his popular single, “The Remedy (I Won’t Worry).” However, it was after the release of his second album, “Mr. A-Z,” three years later that Mraz reached a new level of stardom. The album featured one of his mega hit pop-rock-rap singles, “Geek in the Pink.”
Coming off the success of the follow-up album, Mraz released “We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things” in 2008. The album not only debuted at the No. 3 spot on the Billboard 200 chart, but the title track “I’m Yours,” went five-times platinum and gave Mraz his first Top-10 single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, breaking a chart record for remaining in the top 100 for 76 weeks. The song also snagged him two Grammy Awards for Song of the Year and Best Male Pop Vocal Performance in 2009.
Last year Mraz released his fourth studio album “Love is a Four Letter Word,” featuring the acoustic ballad single “I Won’t Give Up.”
Ticket prices for Mraz’s Seoul performance range from 110,000 to 250,000 won and can be purchased online at ticket.interpark.com.
