Oh, [lastfm]Jack Johnson[/lastfm], how we love thee. Let us count the ways:
1. Your name rocks!
2. We heard you’re donating 100% of your North American tour profits to charity.
This summer, [lastfm]Jack Johnson[/lastfm], will embark on a world tour in support of, To The Sea, his fifth studio album to be released June 1st. Highlights include stops at Madison Square Garden, Jack’s first headline appearance at the Hollywood Bowl, and two nights at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley. And, of course, his stop at The Gorge Ampitheatre on October 2 is sure to be memorable. Check out more details here….
Johnson’s tour will also collaborate with over 150 hand-chosen community groups around the world as part of Johnson’s All At Once Community. This year’s All At Once campaign will focus on supporting non-profit groups and engaging fans in the realms of plastic waste reduction and sustainable local food systems. As in 2008, Jack Johnson will donate 100% of his tour profits to charity. Learn more HERE.
And if that’s not enough, it’s also a green tour. For Johnson’s To The Sea tour, his production team, with the support of Reverb and MusicMatters, will continue to pave the way in green touring practices and community engagement. Greening actions include fueling tour vehicles with sustainable biodiesel, offering eco-friendly tour merchandise, and promoting ride share programs. In addition, venues and fans are encouraged to reduce waste, recycle, use water refill stations and offset carbon emissions.
