Hawaii residents wait in line for Jack Johnson concert tickets

About a hundred people were in line to buy tickets for Jack Johnson's second show.

There was a long line leading to the Blaisdell Center box office as tickets for an additional Jack Johnson concert on Aug. 2 at the Waikiki Shell went on sale Saturday morning for Hawaii residents only.

Tickets are also available at all local Ticketmaster outlets and online at ticketmaster.com. Credit cards will need to have a Hawaii billing zip code.

If any tickets remain after the Hawaii-only sale on Saturday, they will become general on-sale tickets and be made available with no geographic limitations starting at 10 a.m. Hawaii time, Sunday, May 18.

There is a four ticket per person limit for all purchases.

English singer-songwriter Michael Kiwanuka will be the opening act for both concerts.

A second concert was announced Saturday afternoon soon after the first one on Aug. 1, sold out in less than a hour.

Johnson’s upcoming tour is to help promote his latest album, “From Here to Now to You.” The Waikiki Shell has been the site of Johnson’s previous Kokua Festivals, and this marks the first time that Johnson and his band, will be the sole main act.

It will be Johnson’s first show in Hawaii in over two years, and like his Kokua Festivals, all proceeds will benefit the Kokua Hawaii Foundation, he and his wife Kim’s local environmental charity.
