The first show of the summer at Huntington Bank Pavilion, and what better way to start it off than with Jack Johnson. 

Although it’s been a nice warm day in Chicago, it’s not quite Hawaii hot. Time for Jack Johnson to take to the stage and whisk us all off to hotter climes. 

It’s a nice early start to the weekend, relaxing with a beer in hand, with Johnson singing his always cheerful, chillout music. Looking like he was enjoying every minute being on stage, he couldn’t help but smile throughout the whole show. This was a feeling clearly reflected by the audience as they sang along, swaying to each of his songs with equally big smiles on their faces.

You can’t help but feel relaxed when you hear his smooth, melodic voice. This is the first of two nights for Johnson at Northerly Island – the perfect summer venue situated right on Lake Michigan.

This is Johnson’s first tour since 2014 and is the beginning of a summer long tour with many of the dates already being sold out. There is no better way to enjoy the summer months than listening to Jack Johnson go through his hits, whilst also being sure to cover both old and new. He clearly stills has the pull considering he has not had a new album out since 2013 and is still drawing such big crowds, two nights in a row. It didn’t matter whether he was performing songs from In Between Dreams, From Here To Now To You or The Bushfire Fairytales – the crowd were with him every step of the way, singing word for word. 

The next stop on the tour is Ohio, and continues on throughout the US, rounding out with two nights in Honolulu in August and California’s Ohana Fest in September. Check out the schedule here and be sure to catch this tour when they come to your town. Your blood pressure will thank you.
