Jason Mraz coming to the 1-800-Ask-Gary Amphitheatre in Tampa




Is America read for Jason Mraz, amphitheatre headliner? 

The cat in the hat with the teeny-tiny voice -- and the catalog of big, big pop hits -- is coming to Tampa's 1-800-Ask-Gary Amphitheatre on Aug. 14, according to his website. Singer-songwriter Christina Perri will open the show. No word on ticket prices yet, but they're supposed to go on sale April 14. Keep an eye out here for details.

Nothing against Mraz; I'm Yours and The Remedy are some pretty catchy pop songs. But this is a guy used to playing clubs and theaters, right? What does he know about playing huge venues? (Actually, more than you might think -- way back in 2002, he opened for Dave Matthews Band at the then-St. Pete Times Forum.)

(H/T to Suburban Apologist for the eagle eye on this one.)
