Jason Mraz - Jason Mraz To Tour New York's Five Boroughs

Singer Jason Mraz is aiming to follow in the footsteps of David Bowie and the Beastie Boys by becoming only the third musician to perform in each of New York's five boroughs on the same tour.

The California-based I'm Yours hitmaker announced the mini Big Apple residency on Wednesday (16Jul14), during a press conference at the Empire State Building landmark, revealing he will play shows in Brooklyn, The Bronx, Queens, Staten Island and Manhattan in September (14) in celebration of his new album, Yes!.

He will wrap up the gigs with two shows at the city's iconic Radio City Music Hall, before heading to Europe to continue his world tour.

Brooklyn natives the Beastie Boys previously completed the feat, while British rocker Bowie trekked across the five boroughs in 2002 as part of his Heathen Tour.
