Mraz to embark on second leg of ‘The Mystical Magical Rhythmical Radical Ride’; ‘Dancing with the Stars’ contestant quicksteps to Willie Nelson’s ‘On The Road Again’ this week
Grammy Award-winning musician/songwriter Jason Mraz announced a second leg of “The Mystical Magical Rhythmical Radical Ride” slated for summer 2024 with a stop at the OLG Stage at Fallsview Casino at 7:30 p.m. July 13. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday.
Niagara Casinos Vice President of Marketing Cathy Price said “We are thrilled to welcome multi-talented Jason Mraz to the OLG Stage at Fallsview Casino! Guests can expect a wonderful night of music.”
Tomorrow night marks Mraz’s fifth week on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars,” and he’ll perform a quickstep to Willie Nelson’s “On The Road Again” with his partner Daniella Karagach. Mraz decided to compete on the show this season after releasing “Mystical Magical Rhythmical Radical Ride,” his eighth studio album and return to pop music. “I Feel Like Dancing,” the lead single, is a reminder to dance your own dance without fear, no matter what it looks like.
“Songs appear out of a real necessity, and this song appeared as I struggled with identity and self-worth in my mid-40s,” Mraz noted. “And I have to truly dance like no one's watching.”
Ironically, Mraz’s call to “dance like no one’s watching” has transformed him into dancing while everyone is watching. Week after week, he has won over an audience of millions, with The Daily Beast declaring, “ ‘Dancing with the Stars’ viewers have picked their favorite contestant of the season.”
Mraz hopes his moves this season will inspire new and longtime fans alike to get up on their feet next summer at a live show. The second leg of the “The Mystical Magical Rhythmical Radical Ride” will again feature a stage full of musicians, including longtime collaborators Raining Jane; Austin, Texas-based Grooveline Horns and guitarist Dr. Molly Miller, performing new pop tunes and Mraz fan favorites alike. The trek also includes a performance at Red Rocks with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra on July 28 and a return to The Rady Shell at Jacobs Park with the San Diego Symphony on Aug. 11.
On “Mystical Magical Rhythmical Radical Ride” Mraz reunited with producer Martin Terefe (Coldplay, Train, Mike Posner), who produced Mraz’s landmark album, “We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things.” A 15th anniversary deluxe edition of that three-times-RIAA Platinum album – featuring a never-before-heard demo of “Lucky,” Mraz’s Grammy-winning duet with Colbie Caillat, and a rare demo version of his Diamond-certified smash hit “I’m Yours” – is available now here.
“Dancing with the Stars” is the hit series co-hosted by Alfonso Ribeiro and Julianne Hough in which celebrities are paired with trained ballroom dancers to compete in themed choreographed dance routines that are judged by a panel of renowned ballroom experts, including Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli and Derek Hough. “Dancing with the Stars” airs Tuesdays (8-10:01 p.m. EDT), simulcasting live across both ABC and Disney+ in local time zones and next day on Hulu.
