Jason Mraz Goes Live with the Rolling Stones

Jason Mraz has been hand picked by The Rolling Stones to support the group on five dates of their 'A Bigger Bang' tour. The first date was this Friday, November 18th in Las Vegas, NV.

'It is such an honor for me to be playing with the Rolling Stones, ' says Jason. 'Growing up listening to the Stones, I never would have imagined that some day Id be playing on the same stage as them. This is incredibly exciting for me.' Jason Mraz is currently on a sold-out U.S. headlining tour that will wrap in mid-December. In addition, Jason will perform a concert in his hometown of Mechanicsville, VA on December 11th to benefit his alma mater's choir, the Lee Davis High School Chorus, in partnership with the Hanover Education Foundation.

Jason's current album, MR. A-Z, debuted at #5 on the Billboard 200, and comes nearly three years after his breakthrough debut, the RIAA platinum-certified, Waiting For My Rocket To Come. MR. A-Z was produced by Steve Lilywhite (U2, Dave Matthews Band) and features the new single, 'Geek in the Pink'.
