Grammy Award winner Jason Mraz launched his Asian concert tour this month, and is set to stage a concert at the Taipei Arena on Saturday. He will return to Asia in July for more shows in South Korea and Japan, and perform at the Fuji Rock Festival in Yuzawa, Japan on July 28.

Best known for his hit I’m Yours, Mraz started the Good Vibes Tour to promote his sixth album Know, released last year. The album has hit the No. 1 spot on eight music charts in Taiwan, and its first single Have It All also topped the Taiwanese iTunes chart.

Meanwhile, after 24 years, legendary Japanese composer Ryuichi Sakamoto is going to visit Taiwan again next week. Sakamoto won an Academy Award for Best Original Score with The Last Emperor. He will meet fans after a special airing of his documentary film Ryuichi Sakamoto: Coda, scheduled for Friday next week at the Ambassador Theaters in Taipei’s Breeze Center.
