Following the September release of his 7th studio album ‘All The Light Above It Too’ on his own Brushfire Records label.
Multi-platinum selling US singer songwriter Jack Johnson announces two very special July UK shows to kick off his 2018 European tour.
Following a blockbuster summer tour of the US, including two sold-out shows at the Greek Theatre and a sold-out Hollywood Bowl, Jack moved on to South America and is currently touring around Australia. The world tour will resume next summer with the following two UK dates:
Thurs 5th CORNWALL, Eden Sessions
Fri 6th LONDON, Hammersmith Apollo
As with all of Jack’s tours, there will be a heavy focus on sustainability and community projects across the shows, with a number of green initiatives being adopted at all shows, as well as directing tour profits through the Johnson Ohana Foundation to fund to environmental, art and music education worldwide. The total of these album and tour profit donations, along with Johnson’s personal charitable activities, have resulted in over $30 million donated to charity since 2001.
‘All The Light Above It Too’ was recorded over the past year at Jack’s Hawaii based Mango Tree Studio. For the first time in years Johnson handled most of the instrumentation himself, echoing the four-track recordings that launched his career over 17 years ago.
Jack Johnson grew up surfing and playing guitar in Hawaii. Since 2001, he has released 7 studio albums and 2 live albums that have sold over 25 million copies worldwide. His Brushfire Records label and touring crew have been leaders in the greening of the music industry and his All At Once social action network connects fans with local non-profits at each tour stop.
