Jack Johnson Going 'Green' on Summer Tour

Published: 2008-03-04
Singer-songwriter Jack Johnson, who released his fourth album early last month, will be undertaking a more environmentally friendly tour in support of Sleep Through the Static this Summer. There are 19 dates scheduled so far on this American tour (with one Canadian date slated for late August), whereby Johnson will continue to raise consciousness for a 'greener' planet by allowing fans to pay an optional fee of $1.50 "to offset carbon emissions associated with traveling from the show," Billboard reports. Simultaneously, an online community called "All At Once" will be launched as of mid-June that will provide information on improving our atmosphere as well as allowing concertgoers to connect and find rides to the shows together. In addition, stickers supporting the cause will also be available for purchase at the merchandise tables during the tour.

The tour starts on the 13th of June in Indiana and ends on the 24th of August in San Francisco. Tickets go on sale in mid-March and will feature various opening acts, such as Rogue Wave and Mason Jennings and the Culver City Dub.

The only Canadian date on the Jack Johnson tour is:

Aug. 21st, Vancouver, BC – Thunderbird Stadium

I just returned from the Burls creek concert in Oro ontario....Jack gave a very memorable performance....however I was somewhat disappointed in Live Nations no show with all the "green" that was suppose to be there....there were absolutely no recycling bins in the camping grounds....in fact I believe one could have counted all the bins on two hands. I don't think I'll be attending anymore of his shows!!!!
P.S the amount of litter at that event was absolutely disgusting
