I don’t think I really got Jack Johnson until I saw him live. While promoting his latest album, From Here To Now To You, he visited The Orpheum, and I had the privilege of reviewing the show. It was amazing. Like a modern-day Jimmy Buffet, Jack Johnson live is just kind of a magical experience.
This spring and summer, Johnson will bring his signature beach-style, groovy sing-along back to the mainland with some very special guests, including Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Amos Lee, ALO, and Bahamas. When the tour stops at the Greek Theatre, Los Angeles fans will get to see Michael Kiwanuka open the two show engagements.
The tour will also support some great causes. Each show will benefit sustainable local food systems, plastic-free initiatives, sustainable biodiesel tour busses, and eco-friendly merch. And if you’re rolling your eyes at these concepts, thinking they are a bunch of hippie ideals…shut up. It’s 2014. This is how we need to do things now. Rant complete.
If you want a complete Jack Johnson experience, everything from great music to social investments, go to this show. I cannot recommend it enough.
