Jack Johnson Shows to Benefit Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation

May 04, 2017

Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation Co-Founder Jack Johnson will be playing two hometown shows, August 4th and August 5th at the Waikīkī Shell in Honolulu. All proceeds from the shows will benefit the Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation to support environmental education in Hawaiʻi schools and communities.

The Waikīkī shows will feature the All At Once Village Green, where fans can snack on tasty island fresh treats, learn about environmental projects, and participate in interactive games and crafts with Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation and over 30 other local non-profits and food vendors. Non-Profit partners such as Slow Food Oʻahu, Mālama Loko Ea, and Hoa ʻĀina O Mākaha will promote sustainable local food initiatives, and organizations including Sustainable Coastlines Hawaiʻi, Mālama Pūpūkea-Waimea, and Surfrider Oʻahu will share information about ocean stewardship efforts and how to get involved. The Keiki Stage area will also offer special activities for kids including creative reuse art projects hosted by Art Explorium, along with special performances from the Honolulu Theatre for Youth and more.

Johnson and his production team have paved the way in green touring practices with extensive sustainability programs at every show. The Waikīkī Shell shows will continue to revolutionize environmentally friendly touring, including eliminating the use of single-use plastics backstage and at all concessions. All beverages will be served in cans, all serveware will be compostable, and no single-use plastic water bottles will be sold. Instead, fans can bring in or buy their own empty reusable Jack Johnson or Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation branded water thermos or cups to refill at the Water Refill Stations that will be located around the venue. Fans can also reduce their carbon footprint by biking to the show and utilizing the Bike Valet service or carpooling with 4 or more friends and parking at the Carpool Only lots located at the front of the venue. Electric trolleys will also bring concertgoers who can park at off-site lots at Kapiʻolani Community College.

Tickets are still available for both shows online at www.ticketmaster.com or www.bampproject.com, and by phone at 1-800-745-3000. 

Please Note: In an effort to keep tickets in the hands of fans, the shows will be a paperless ticket event. Purchaser will need to bring the Credit Card used to purchase the tickets, a matching ID, and paperless ticket for entry to the show. Also please note there will be NO BOX OFFICE ticket sales whatsoever; all tickets will be sold online and by phone only.
