Jack Johnson wraps up tour down under

Johnson has ended 2017 on a high, wrapping up his tour around Australia including Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, and Perth.

Fans enjoyed not only the best of his older songs, but got a taste of his new album, All the Light Above It Too, which was released back in September.

Arriving on stage with crutches and a knee brace, Jack announced he had “good news and some bad news”. “Obviously, you can see what the bad news is. The good news is that I don’t play guitar with my knee!”

Jack Johnson opened straight into Sitting, Waiting, Wishing, with that unforgetable chilled voice, followed up with Taylor, much to the crowd’s delight as they joined in loudly.

Joining Jack Johnson on this tour was the Bahamas, a fellow artist from Johnson’s on Brushfire Records label.

Born in Canada, Bahamas is the stage name of Afie Jurvanen, a folk musician whose music is frequently critically acclaimed, and has worked with a number of high-profile artists, including The Lumineers, Howie Beck, and Feist.

Jack Johnson wowed the crowd in Brisbane at the popular Riverstage, where the rain managed to hold off for the evening. Crowd pleasers included old favourites like Banana Pancakes, Flake, Good People and Breakdown.

Melbourne also enjoyed a rain free show in the open air arena where Jack Johnson and the Bahamas brought the vibe to the balmy summer night.

Considering that three of his last four records managed to top the ARIA charts. Jack Johnson’s new album is sure to be a hit this summer.
