Jack Johnson is proving that an artist can sell enough cd’s to pay for a decent living and at the same time donate all the profits from his concert tour to local charities. And his ticket prices are some of the lowest at anywhere from $40 to $70 depending on the market and seat type.
Though he was offered the option of having a VIP area at a higher price, Jack Johnson turned it down as he oversees everything about the details of his tour and where the profits from his concerts go. Most of the charities are nonprofits and school districts and the grants are geared toward environmental education, music and arts, all of which Jack Johnson has always been a huge proponent of.
Jack Johnson is living off of the over $10 million cd’s he has sold in his career including his latest “To the Sea” which was influenced by his father, a well known Hawaiian surfer who died last summer. He breaks out the electric guitar on this album as well as his usual acoustic.
Jack Johnson’s tour is currently scheduled through October 14th. Tickets for Jack Johnson in concert are still available from the regular sources and some of the best tickets can be purchased on the secondary market also. Preferred Seating tickets are an excellent source for Jack Johnson tickets, with no hidden fees.
