Jack Johnson, the lovable Hawaiian surfer folk rocker, has extended his current tour into September and October. You can catch a show near you if you’re in the Southeast. Tickets go on sale July 21.
The extension kicks off September 27 in Virginia Beach and makes stops in Raleigh, Atlanta, Charlotte and three cities in Florida. Canadian folk singer Bahamas will open for Johnson on the new dates. The show has received rave reviews, with critics pointing to Johnson’s laid-back, welcoming air on stage. His smooth vocal style has some calling him the James Taylor of his generation—high praise indeed.
This extended leg of the tour will support his upcoming album, All the Light Above It Too, out September 8. He recently released the single “My Mind Is For Sale”.
Johnson is a strong advocate for environmental causes and was recently involved in the short film The Smog of the Sea, which explores the issue of plastic pollution in the world’s oceans. The film is the brainchild of Marcus Erikson, co-founder of the 5 Gyres Institute, who put together an eclectic crew to participate in a research expedition sailing through the Sargasso Sea. Along with Johnson, noted spearfisher Kimi Werner, bodysurfer Mark Cunningham, and surfers Keith and Dan Malloy all made an appearance.
Here are the new tour dates and locations.
September 28 – PNC Music Pavilion, Charlotte, NC
September 29 – Coastal Credit Union Music Park at Walnut Creek, Raleigh, NC
September 30 – Lakewood Amphitheatre, Atlanta, GA
October 2 – St Augustine Amphitheatre, St. Augustine, FL
