Jack Johnson Closes Tour with Back-to-Back Shows at Santa Barbara Bowl

Jack Johnson's tour, "From Here to Now to You," made its way to the Santa Barbara Bowl for its final two nights, Aug. 31 and Sept. 1, ending the tour where Johnson once lived while attending UC Santa Barbara.

Selling out his tours wherever he goes seems to be the standard, and coming to the Santa Barbara Bowl — with special guest ALO — was no exception, as his concert sold out two consecutive nights.

Numerous awards plus two Grammys and millions of dollars in sales worldwide have put Johnson at the top of the entertainment world of music.

While touring, Johnson has been promoting the environmental ways of living green, stressing the importance of the environment during his concerts. On Monday night, Johnson urged concertgoers to take action with the My Cup and Me effort, through which one could purchase as a reusable cup on-site, provided by Klean Kanteen, receive $1 discounts on additional beverage purchases and bring the cup back to future shows for discounts.

While enjoying the concert with our reusable cup filled with wine, Johnson was thoroughly entertaining his audience. The concert left you feeling as if he was playing in your backyard with his relaxed way of performing.

As the night went on, some of his biggest hits were performed, including "Sitting, "Waiting, Wishing," "Better Together," "Bubble Toes" and "Good People."

The holiday weekend was a Johnson weekend for many, and some of his fans are probably saying, "When's Jack coming back?!"

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
