Johnson and his band will kick off their tour in Europe and then return to the States at some of the most beautiful and intimate seated theatres in North America including the Arlington Theatre in Santa Barbara, CA on Sunday, October 20th with special guest Bahamas. As Johnson told Rolling Stone about his 2012 Hawaiian Islands Tour: “They were the most magical shows,” he says. “It gave you the time to tell stories and where the songs came from. I really enjoyed that. I think we’re going to mix it up next year with different types of tours, but at least for a lot of it, we’re going to try to do some theaters.” With 25 of his 28 fall tour venues in historic theaters, Johnson is doing just that. As with all of his tours since 2008, Johnson will donate 100% of his tour profits to charity.

For the fall tour, Johnson and his production team, alongside Reverb, will continue to pave the way in green touring practices and community engagement initiatives. Tour vehicles will be fueled by domestic sustainable biodiesel wherever possible, concertgoers will be offered mass transportation options, waste reduction measures will be expanded and single-use disposable water bottles will continue to be eliminated backstage. In addition the tour will source local food from “farm to stage”, produce and offer eco-friendly merchandise, provide free water refill stations and invest in community based carbon offset projects.

From Here To Now To You was recorded in Hawaii at Johnson’s Mango Tree Studio and produced by Mario Caldato, Jr. who produced Johnson’s biggest selling album, In Between Dreams, as well as albums by Beastie Boys, Super Furry Animals, Seu Jorge and more. The album also marks a reunion with good friend and fellow musician Ben Harper who lends his talents of vocals and Weisenbborn slide guitar for a song. The album’s first single, “I Got You” was #1 most added at AAA radio and is now available to purchase on iTunes alongside a full album pre-order which has already risen into the iTunes Top 10, 3 months before its release. http://smarturl.it/JackJohnsonFHTNTYiT
