How does Jason Mraz open up his first headlining show at the legendary Madison Square Garden? The way a man who got his start performing in San Diego coffee houses would: "What's up, dudes?"

And so the singer-songwriter eased into a beautiful two-hour set last night, just like he said he would, completely engaging his audience with his heartwarming songs that had them smiling from ear-to-ear. 

Wearing a fedora with his pony-tail tucked in, Mraz was apparently very comfortable on that MSG stage (perhaps his recent performance at Z100's Jingle Ball helped). He even paraded around barefoot--that's how chill this dude is!

The Virginia-native and his band sported neon stripes on their cheeks and arms as if they were some peace tribe, and they definitely brought the good vibes on favorite sing-along numbers like "I’m Yours" and "93 Million Miles."

Other highlights of this enchanting evening included a duet with Colbie Caillat on "Lucky," and covers of the Beatles' "In My Life" and Bob Marley's "Everything's Gonna Be Alright."
