Throughout his career, Mraz has earned numerous platinum certifications for his various releases, made pop history with his record-breaking singles, ‘I’m Yours’ and ‘I Won’t Give Up,’ won two Grammy Awards, received the prestigious Songwriter Hall of Fame Hal David Award, and sold out amphitheaters and arenas across the globe. He’s also become known for his positive message, upbeat tunes and humorous live shows. The tour follows the release of Mraz’s sixth studio album Know back in August. It’s now his fifth consecutive studio album to debut in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200.

Andrew Lloyd-Webber and Tim Rice’s well-beloved 1978 West End musical is coming to Shanghai in early-mid September this year. Evita follows the life of Eva Peron, from her early life and rise to power, to her charity work and eventual death. Following the story of an Argentine girl who charmed and worked her way up to share the power (and the bed) of her country’s leader, General Juan Peron, this amazing show consists of many different melodies from rock to opera, as well as emotional lyrics.

Fri-Sun Sept 6-8, 7.30pm; Tues-Thurs Sept 10-12, 7.30pm; Sun Sept 15, 7.30pm; RMB680-1280, SAIC Shanghai Culture Square Theatre, see event listing. Purchase tickets here.

Based on the historical psychological novel by Stendhal, the French rock-opera musical Le Rouge et le Noir- L’opéra Rock (The Red and the Black - The Rock Opera) is heading to Shanghai in early-mid October this year. It chronicles provincial young man Julien Sorel as he attempts to rise beyond his modest upbringing through hard work — and hypocrisy. Audiences can expect stunning music and visuals as they become immersed by Julien’s passion and betrayal within the rigid religious and social structures of nineteenth-century France. 

Thu-Fri Oct 3-4, 7.30pm; Sat-Sun Oct 5-6, 2pm OR 7.30pm; Tue-Sat Oct 8-12, 7.30pm; Sun Oct 13, 4pm or 7.30pm; Shanghai Culture Square Theatre, see event listing. Purchase tickets here.
