King Center

An AEG Live Production JACKSON BROWNE - Solo Acoustic Tour Singer-songwriter Jackson Browne has added The King Center for the Performing Arts to his 2011 solo acoustic tour which begins next month in California. Playing guitar and piano, he will perform songs from his entire body of work, with varying set lists each night. One of the many guitars Jackson will be bringing on the road this time is the just-released Gibson Acoustic Jackson Browne Signature acoustic guitar. The handmade instrument, inspired by Gibson's legendary 1930s-era Roy Smeck model, is the first guitar to bear Jackson Browne's name. The intimacy of Jackson's solo performances has been captured on two live albums - the GRAMMY-nominated Jackson Browne - Solo Acoustic, Vol. 1 (2005), and Jackson Browne - Solo Acoustic, Vol. 2 (2008), both released on Inside Recordings. In Rolling Stone's four-star review of Vol. 2, Anthony DeCurtis wrote, "Between songs, Browne speaks about his life and music with moving candor". This is Browne at his best, engaging his audience, his own experiences and the world around him, all in songs that will not lose their resonance any time soon." Since 2008, Jackson's tours have strived to be plastic-free both onstage and backstage. It's estimated that since 2008, through approximately 150 band shows and 50 solo acoustic dates, his tours have saved more than 50,738 plastic bottles from landfills and ocean gyres. In 2010, Jackson joined with Brita's FilterForGood movement, making Brita Hydration Stations available to dispense filtered water, free-of-charge, to concert attendees. Jackson is a member of the Plastic Pollution Coalition (www.plasticpollutioncoalition.org), a global alliance of individuals, organizations and businesses working to stop single use plastic and its toxic impacts on humans, animals and the environment.
