Additional Jack Johnson tickets on sale
HONOLULU PULSE STAFF / firstname.lastname@example.org
Fans of local pop superstar Jack Johnson have a few new options to try for tickets to his previously sold-out concerts on Aug. 1 and Aug. 2 at the Waikiki Shell.
Johnson’s non-profit Kokua Foundation announced Tuesday that a limited number of production tickets — seats held back by show promoters — would be released to the general public at noon Wednesday. In a continuing effort to thwart scalpers, tickets released for the Aug. 2 concert will be paperless.
According to a post on the Kokua Foundation website:
“A physical ticket for entry will not be sent to you. Instead, you will be required to bring the credit card used to purchase your tickets and a government-issued ID to the venue at the time of the show, where your credit card will be swiped to gain you and your party access to the event. This is an attempt to keep tickets out of scalpers hands and in the hands of fans.”
Tickets will be available for purchase at all Ticketmaster outlets and online at Ticketmaster.com.
Another option for tickets is to participate in the Kokua Foundation’s online ticket auctions. If sitting on the lawn isn’t good enough, “some of the best seats and a few pit tickets” are available to bid on at eBay.com.
The auctions are currently underway and run through 8 p.m. July 29. Each ticket package up for bid includes either a pair of premium seats or access to the pit in front of the stage at the Shell, plus a gift bag with Johnson’s “From Here to Now to You” album and an autographed poster.
