Jack Johnson announces Australian tour

Words by Talia Rinaldo

Jack Johnson is touring Australia in 2022 with special guests Ziggy Alberts and Emily Wurramara.

Multi-platinum musician Jack Johnson makes his welcome return to Australia this November and December playing a bunch of everyone’s favourite songs outdoors and under the stars, touring in support of his latest studio album, Meet The Moonlight.

Last here in 2019 to headline the 30th Annual Bluesfest, Jack Johnson’s ‘Meet The Moonlight’ Tour will see the band performing at some of Australia’s finest outdoor venues, kicking off the tour on November 29th at Perth’s stunning Kings Park and Botanic Garden and making stops at the new HOTA Amphitheatre on the Gold Coast, Brisbane’s Riverstage, the Forecourt of the iconic Sydney Opera House, and concluding at Melbourne’s Sidney Myer Music Bowl.

Joining Jack on the tour will be Australian APRA Award-winning singer-songwriter Ziggy Alberts. Having released eight records including the double-platinum ‘Laps Around The Sun’, and played sold-out tours across the globe, Ziggy’s genuine grassroots story and captivating live performances have amassed millions of fans worldwide.

Adding to this momentous occasion, opening for all shows will be one of music’s most inspiring Indigenous role models, the AIR award-winning and ARIA-nominated artist Emily Wurramara.

The Australian tour announcement comes just days after the worldwide release of Johnson’s eighth studio album and his first full-length record in five years.

The album was produced by Blake Mills (Alabama Shakes, Perfume Genius, Jim James) and recorded both in Los Angeles, at Sound City and EastWest, and in Hawaii at Johnson’s studio The Mango Tree. Featuring the first single ‘One Step Ahead’, the second single ‘Don’t Look Now’, the album’s centrepiece and title track ‘Meet The Moonlight’, this latest album marks a major artistic milestone for Johnson, whose decades-spanning career has included countless sold-out tours, over 25 million albums sold worldwide and multiple industry awards, including three Brit Awards and two Grammy nominations. Jack Johnson’s new album ‘Meet The Moonlight’ is available here through Brushfire Records/Republic Records.

Once again hitting the stage with his long-time bandmates, Merlo, Adam and Zach, fans can expect to hear plenty of classic Jack including ‘Better Together’, ‘Flake’, ‘Inaudible Melodies’, ‘Taylor’, ‘Sitting, Waiting, Wishing’ and some soon to be favourites from the new album.
