Johnson is on tour in support of his sixth studio album, From Here To Now To You, which debuted #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart, Johnson’s fourth chart-topping album to date. In celebration of Earth Day, Jack released the “From Here To Now To You Live EP”. This 6 track EP features live tracks from Johnson’s theater tour last fall. 100% of the proceeds from the “From Here To Now To You Live EP,” as well as from the Oahu concert, will benefit Johnson’s Kōkua Hawai’i Foundation.
Johnson and his All At Once campaign are collaborating with over 130 hand-chosen community groups across North America to support sustainable local food systems and plastic free initiatives during his 2014 headline tour. During the tour, The Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation will match donations to these All At Once Non-Profit Partners, up to a total of $2,500 (US) per group. All At Once comes to life at the shows in the Village Green, where concert-goers connect with local non-profits, take environmental action, capture environmental commitment photos, and enter to win a chance to watch Jack Johnson’s performance from the stage.
