During an “unpresidented” winter of tumultuous events, here’s something to chill upon: Jack Johnson will appear July 28 and 29 at Lake Tahoe.
Johnson, an eco-champion and a surf rocker, will play the Lake Tahoe Outdoor Arena at Harveys at the conclusion of a six-week, 17-date tour. General admission and bleacher tickets — both $70 plus entertainment fees — went on sale for the July 29 on Friday at ticketmaster.com and apeconcerts.com. The Friday night show sold out within hours and a second show was added this week. Storytelling songwriter John Craigie will open Saturday’s show. The first concert will start with the California band ALO.
It will be Jack Johnson’s first major tour since 2014.
With the new conservative climate in Washington, D.C., the concert will come with a message. Johnson has released a song, “Fragments,” which addresses plastic pollution in the ocean. ALO stands for Animal Liberation Orchestra.
Other shows announced for the series are Paul Simon on June 25, reggae rockers Rebelution, along with Nahko and Medicine for the People, HIRIE and Collie Buddz on Friday, June 30, Sammy Hagar and the Circle on July 7, Train, Natasha Bedingfield and O.A.R on Sunday, July, 9; Lenny Kravitz on Friday, July 14, Third Eye Blind on Sunday, July 16 and Slightly Stoopid, Iration, J Boog and The Movement on Friday, Aug. 4.
