Perennial festival headliner and mellow surf rocker Jack Johnson has a new album coming out on June 1 entitled To The Sea (not to be confused with The Sea by Corrinne Bailey Rae). In support of his new LP, Jack is heading out on another massive eco-tour starting this summer, he’ll make a pit stop at MSG on July 14. Tickets for that show go on Amex presale starting April 1 (today) at 10AM, regular on sale begins April 10 at 10AM. (There is an empty day in the schedule, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see another show get added.)

For Johnson’s To The Sea tour, his production team, with the support of Reverb and MusicMatters, will continue to pave the way in green touring practices and community engagement. Greening actions include fueling tour vehicles with sustainable biodiesel, offering eco-friendly tour merchandise, and promoting ride share programs. In addition, venues and fans are encouraged to reduce waste, recycle, use water refill stations and offset carbon emissions. Visit JackJohnsonMusic.com/Greening for all tour greening details.

Johnson’s tour will also collaborate with over 150 hand-chosen community groups around the world as part of Johnson’s All At Once Community. This year’s All At Once campaign will focus on supporting non-profit groups and engaging fans in the realms of plastic waste reduction and sustainable local food systems. As in 2008, Jack Johnson will donate 100% of his tour profits to charity. Visit AllAtOnce.org for additional information.
