Hawaiian Islands Tour Concludes
Jack Johnson, along with friends John Cruz and Paula Fuga, just finished their seven-date, all-acoustic Hawaiian Islands tour of Kauai, Oahu, Maui and the Big Island where they played intimate venues such as the historic Hawaii Theatre in Honolulu and the Kahilu Theatre in Waimea. Jack opened his set solo on a stool singing songs and telling the stories behind them. He played a different set every night with lots of old favorites including F-Stop Blues, Dreams, and Fortunate Fool. The shows had a fun, loose feel with John and Paula joining Jack on stage for the second half of the set to collaborate and harmonize on each other songs, including John Cruz's Island Style and Little Bit of Love, Paula Fuga's Country Road, and Jack's Constellations, Breakdown and more. For the encore, Jack came to the edge of the stage and closed the shows with a special off-the-mic performance using the natural acoustics of the theatres.
Jack, Paula & John Spread Aloha to Local Green Schools in Hawaii
To close the tour, Jack, Paula, John and Kokua Hawaii Foundation staff, made a special visit to Waiakea Elementary School in Hilo on the Big Island of Hawaii to reward the students for the incredible work they have done creating a school-wide recycling program as part of their Kokua Earth Action Project this year.
