THE RYDGES POST
Jack Johnson has returned to Australia to promote his sixth studio album, From Here To Now To You which has just been released through his own Brushfire Records. It features his good friend Ben Harper contributing with his signature slide and vocals on one of the songs. He tours in December.
7th December, Kings Park and Botanic Garden, Perth
10th December, Sydney Opera House
14th December, QPAC Concert Hall, Brisbane
16th December, Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre
Jack has sold a whopping 19 million albums since his debut album 12 years ago and collected four Aria Number 1’s from his multi-platinum selling albums. They say nice guys don’t finish first but since 2008 he has been donating 100% of his tour profits to charity. That’s the act of a nice guy and he has a big following.
Jack’s last concert tour was of the Hawaiian Islands and has affected his choice of venues in Australia. He is playing outdoors on the Sydney Opera House steps and at Perth’s Kings Park to recreate that idyllic, balmy tropical ambience, and he’s brought acts Paula Fuga and John Cruz from Hawaii as his supports.
