The Film: In the summer of 2008 Jack Johnson took a trip through Europe, playing everywhere from historical venues to classic outdoor stages making it the biggest tour of his career. The film is a collection of live performances with Jack’s quartet, Adam Topol, Merlo Podlewski and Zach Gill, along with special appearances by G. Love, Ben Harper, Mason Jennings, Neil Halstead and Matt Costa. Through weathering the stormy nights in Newquay to surfing on a river in Germany, to playing the packed house in London’s Hyde Park, the film takes you on a trip and captures the connection between an audience and an artist on an international stage.
“...Jack really does not like to be on the other side of the lens. Getting a shot of him is kind of similar to getting a shot of the Loch Ness Monster; it’s a rare occurrence. Surprisingly, he let our cameras join him on this tour. I just knew that I better keep a guitar or surfboard in his hands, because with either of those weapons he seemed to never know we were there.” to read more from Jack’s good friend and the filmmaker, Emmett Malloy click here.
The Album: The 2008 world tour had a ton of special moments, and this CD represents some of the finest. From sharing the stage at Bonnaroo with Eddie Vedder, to leading a massive singalong at Bercy in Paris, to wowing a festival crowd at Outside Lands, to stepping onto the stage alone to close the show at Red Rocks. Longtime crowd favorites from Jack’s catalog are interwoven with passages from some of Jack’s own favorite songs.
