Jason Mraz Joins The Alltech Fortnight Festival

Lexington, KY – Jason Mraz will take the stage on September 26 at the Murray State University Regional Special Events Center as part of the Alltech Fortnight Festival™ during the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games 2010™. Special guest Christina Perri will open the performance at 7 p.m. CST.

The popularity of Mraz’s latest album “We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things.” was jump-started by the single “I’m Yours” and has enjoyed international acclaim ever since its release. His pop roots remain but have given way to a more inspired, mature sound in recent recordings. Mraz states that his new album was inspired by “moments of self-realization, self-empowerment and self-improvement.”

Tickets, priced at $27.50 and $39.50, are on sale now. For more information, visit www.AlltechFortnightFestival.com.
