Jason Mraz updated fans on his blog at MySpace (@jasonmraz) on Wednesday (May 6), talking about what happens at the end of a tour with just a couple Las Vegas dates left before he takes five weeks off. The San Diego singer songwriter tells readers:
Wrapping up a tour is a lot like packing up and heading home from college. Our semester spanned a lengthy 3 months across four continents. The time and distance marked an endurance record for all of us out here. I marvel at the weight I’ve put on in bric-a-brac.
Boxes of books share space with random t-shirts, gifted bras and hats and tour laminates. A warped Scrabble board unveils its years and an affinity for absorption (referring to the annual liquid spill within the luggage.) The scents stand divided. Some things reek of wet shoes, sweaty pits or a turtle’s terrarium while other items emit the fragrant aroma of sage, nag champa, and weed seed. Stacks of generous demo CD’s tossed from the playful hands of unknown artists in audiences around the world await council from management. Non-perishables are divided amongst the parting band and crew.
