Grammy-winning musician Jason Mraz announced his first U.S. tour dates since the start of the pandemic and it includes a stop in the Miami Valley.

Mraz will perform Tuesday, Aug. 10 at Rose Music Center in Huber Heights, 6800 Executive Blvd. Tickets will go on sale to the public beginning at 10 a.m. on Thursday, May 27 at Ticketmaster.com and RoseMusicCenter.com.

“When we recorded ‘Look For The Good,’ we knew we had created something special, something uplifting, that needed to be performed in front of live audiences,” Mraz said in a release from Rose. “And then, right before our shows began, the world stopped. Like many artists we created quarantine concerts across the internet, but no matter how big the digital reach, it doesn’t compare to being in the same room. We’ve been patiently waiting for this day: when the curtain goes up in Austin -- it will be a celebration of life, with a new appreciation for live music, and in-person connections we’ve all been missing.”

Mraz will be accompanied on stage with his 13-piece reggae band he enlisted for the “Look For The Good Live!” tour set to kick-off Friday, July 30.

“‘Look For The Good,’ released last June, features guest appearances by actress/comedian Tiffany Haddish and reggae icon Sister Carol,” stated the Rose release. “Mraz announced on the album’s release day that all of his profits from ‘Look For The Good,’ including his label advance and subsequent royalties, would be donated to non-profit organizations who serve to advance opportunity and equality for Black lives.”
