Jack Johnson’s worldwide tour of his upcoming album, To The Sea, will include a visit to Comcast Center in Mansfield on Saturday, July 10. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $35 to $55, go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. though Live Nation. The show will kick off with openers G. Love and ALO.

To The Sea, Johnson’s fifth studio album, will hit stores on June 1 via the Hawaiian native’s own label Brushfire Records. The album’s first single, “You And Your Heart”, just released to radio and is streaming on his MySpace. The album was co-produced by Johnson, his band mates bassist Merlo Podlewski, keyboardist Zach Gill, and drummer Adam Topol, and Johnson’s longtime engineer Robert Carranza. To The Sea was recorded at Johnson’s two solar-powered studios: The Mango Tree in Hawaii and the Solar Powered Plastic Plant in Los Angeles.

Johnson’s tour, which kicks off in Hartford July 9, will also collaborate with over 150 hand-chosen community groups around the world as part of Johnson’s All At Once Community. This year’s All At Once campaign will focus on supporting non-profit groups and engaging fans in the realms of plastic waste reduction and sustainable local food systems. As in 2008, Jack Johnson will donate 100% of his tour profits to charity. He will also use the tour as an effort to promote green practices and community participation. The tour vehicles will run on sustainable biodiesel fuel, merchandise will be eco-friendly and venues are encouraged to recycle and reduce waste.
