Local songbird May, who is back with an album after a four-year hiatus, will headline the concert the next day.

She will likely to be debuting fresh numbers from her newest album "Crooked Lines", which was released last month.

Local fans of Mraz expressed their excitement at the American returning to Singapore after three years.

Atika Ramli, a multimedia designer said: "I was hoping for him to come to Singapore again as I didn't get to attend his previous gig here and I'm really looking forward to it this time!"

"I'll sing, dance and steal my way to the Jason Mraz concert!" exclaimed 23-year-old Izyan Arrifin who has been a Mraz fan for eight years.
