Atlantic recording artist Jason Mraz has slated a busy late summer schedule, including high profile TV appearances, a Twitter contest, and the long awaited start of his North American âTOUR IS A FOUR LETTER WORD.â The jam-packed itinerary celebrates the international success of the GRAMMY® Award-winning tunesmithâs latest album, âLOVE IS A FOUR LETTER WORD.â

The itinerary gets underway tonight with a performance on Conan (check local listings). Later this month, Mraz and his band will look forward to performing to another capacity crowd at the âToyota Concert Seriesâ on NBCâs TODAY, slated to air live from New York Cityâs Rockefeller Plaza on Friday, August 31st. That appearance will be followed by a Tuesday, September 4th visit to NBCâs Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. The upcoming live performances follow recent high profile live appearances on CBSâs Late Show with David Letterman, E!âs Opening Act & Chelsea Lately, NBCâs TODAY, PBSâ Tavis Smiley, ABCâs Jimmy Kimmel Live! and two episodes of the Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Mrazâs hugely anticipated âTOUR IS A FOUR LETTER WORDâ gets underway on August 9th at New Orleansâ Lakefront Arena, with dates continuing through early October (see attached itinerary). The tour has three Canadian stops: September 8 at Montrealâs Bell Centre, September 9 at Torontoâs Molson Amphitheatre, and September 21 at Vancouverâs Rogers Arena. Accompanying Mraz and his band for all dates will be his Atlantic Records labelmate Christina Perri. Mraz will partner with the non-profit group Reverb on the tour (www.reverb.org) to make the tour more earth-friendly and engage fans to take action toward a more sustainable future. For more details, visit www.TreeIsAFourLetterWord.org.

A truly global trek, âTOUR IS A FOUR LETTER WORDâ has already swept across Asia, including sold out stops in Busan and Seoul Korea, Shanghai, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Taipei and the inaugural show at Singaporeâs Gardens By The Bay. While in Hong Kong, Mraz held a special performance to celebrate the launch of the iTunes Store in Southeast Asia territories, a momentous event. A link to the performance can be found at http://facebook.itunes.com/0Un.

Furthermore, Mraz recently performed at Japanâs âAP Bank Festival,â the proceeds from which were donated to aid in Japan tsunami and Fukushima relief efforts as well as other related causes. AP Bank is a non-profit organization that provides lending for renewable energy and a variety of other environmental projects http://www.apbank.jp/en/whats.html.

Upon the conclusion of the North American leg, Mraz and his band will head to Europe for a series of stops that include France, Germany, and the famed O2 Arena in London. For complete details and up-to-the-minute ticket information, please see http://jasonmraz.com/tour.

âLOVE IS A FOUR LETTER WORDâ made a spectacular chart debut upon its release earlier this year, entering the Canadian SoundScan chart at No. 1. The album is certified Gold in Canada. Whatâs more, âI Wonât Give Up,â the albumâs blockbuster hit single, has proven to be one of Mrazâs most popular, with sales now approaching 3 million worldwide. The track was certified double-platinum in Canada today.

Mraz recently launched an unprecedented contest inviting Twitter users to help conceptualize an official music video for his song, âThe Woman I Love.â Fans can submit â in 140 characters or less â their vision for the video, the best of which will be featured in the new clip. Users whose ideas were used in the video will then have their Twitter handles credited at the end of âThe Woman I Love.â
