Singer-songwriter Jackson Browne will launch his 2011 Solo Acoustic Tour with a February 23 concert in Santa Cruz, CA. The show will play Comerica Theatre in Phoenix on Friday, March 4th at 8pm. Featuring Jackson on guitar and piano, his solo acoustic tours have long been hailed as fan favorites, pulling songs from the breadth of his entire repertoire.
The intimacy of these performances was captured on two live albums recorded during his U.S., U.K., and Australian tours—the GRAMMY®-nominated Jackson Browne—Solo Acoustic, Vol. 1 (2005), and Jackson Browne—Solo Acoustic, Vol. 2 (2008). Both are available on Jackson’s independent label, 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.”
This 2011 Solo Acoustic Tour follows Jackson’s 2010 Tour with David Lindley, and release of Love Is Strange (Inside Recordings), a 2-CD live set capturing their 2006 tour of Spain.
The 2011 tour continues Jackson’s longstanding tradition of environmental leadership and activism. Both his bus and truck run on bio-diesel fuel. The stage lighting is powered by a 100% LED Bandit Lites (www.banditlites.com) rig, which greatly reduces energy consumption. Using GRNLite technology, the rig is also artist-friendly; it eliminates onstage heat, and offers a vast range of vivid color variations.
Other green innovations include a “no plastic backstage”. It’s estimated that since 2008, over the course of approximately 150 band shows and 50 solo dates, his tours have saved over 50,738 plastic bottles from being used backstage. Jackson has also collaborated with Brita on its FilterForGood movement, making Brita Hydration Hubs available to dispense filtered water, free-of-charge, to concert attendees.
Most recently, Jackson’s environmental advocacy was recognized with the 2010 Duke LEAF Award for Lifetime Environmental Achievement in the Fine Arts from Duke University.
