Was so excited to see the ad in the Straits Times today. And the listing is up on SISTIC.
Now, of course, it’s ticket stress time. Internet booking starts today, in slightly more than half an hour (9 am, 12 January). Judging by the number of searches for Jason Mraz to my blog in the last week or so, there’s going to be rush.

So glad to see evidence that he’s got a big following in Singapore! I may not make it to Singfest, but looks like he’ll have no shortage of fans there.
And I just gotta mention this: I recently found some great quality vids of a concert that was shown on Korean TV in 2006. Here’s the performance of “Geek in the Pink”:

The Good News: Jason Mraz is going to be in Singapore again! Appearing at the Singfest 08 on August 3rd, 2008.
The Bad News (well, for me, anyway): He’s appearing with a whole bunch of artists that I enjoy listening to on CD, but have no interest at all in watching live. The entire event is TEN HOURS long, from afternoon to evening, and outdoors (I’m so susceptible to infections these days, I’d be worried about getting really sick). AND, the clincher, the tickets are so expensive. $200!
But for anyone who’s into that kind of outdoor event, it should be good fun. Jason Mraz is definitely magnetic live. And from what I’ve seen of Alicia Keys on TV in recent months, she’s quite a live performer as well. (Line-up for August 3rd: Alicia Keys, Panic at the Disco, Jason Mraz, One Republic, Stacie Orrico, Jamie Scott, Rick Astley).

It popped back into my mind yesterday that Jason Mraz has a new CD out: We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things. In all the excitement over Clay’s CD, I’d quite put that on the backburner.
So, last night, I listened again to my Tonight Not Again: Jason Mraz Live At the Eagle’s Ballroom CD again.
And was reminded again of how absolutely amazing he was when I went to see him what, two, maybe three years ago (haha, very precise, right?) when he performed an acoustic set here in Singapore — at the Mosaic Music Festival. Before the concert, I already liked his quirky way with lyrics and rhythm, but watching him live underscores that he can really sing as well.
He just stood there with his guitar and sang, and had the entire audience hanging onto every note. I think what it was was that he seemed in thrall with his music, and thus we were enthralled too.
I wonder when he’ll be coming by this way again…
