Product Description

In the summer of 2008 Jack Johnson took a trip through Europe playing everywhere from historical venues to classic outdoor stages making it the biggest tour of his career. The film is a collection of live performances with Jack's quartet along with special appearances by G. Love, Ben Harper, Mason Jennings, Neil Halstead and Matt Costa. Through weathering the stormy nights in Newquay to surfing on a river in Germany, to playing the packed house in London's Hyde Park, the film takes you on a trip and captures the connection between an audience and an artist on an international stage. This is more than a compilation of performances, this is an intimate look at Jack Johnson, his life on the road, and the unique dialogue he has with his fans.

From the Contributor

All of Jack's profits from the 2008 tour, and this release will be going to fund the Kokua Hawaii Foundation and the Johnson Ohana Family trust which will provide continuing endowments to Jack's favorite environmental charities.

I've been a Jack Johnson fan ever since hearing Flake and Bubble Toes when Brushfire Fairytales was first released. His concert footage was always tough for me to source, so when Jack Johnson En Concert came out, I thought it was time to see how his laid back tunes translated to the live venue. I was not disappointed. I knew I was in for a treat when the bold, block letter opening credits played over black and white street scenes of Paris - an obvious nod to Godard and the new wave film maker aesthetic. This set the tone for the film - it is not so much a concert video, as some other reviewers may have hoped, but rather a documentary of their 2008 tour through Europe with fantastic cinematography and beautiful live footage of Johnson and his three piece band, along with their tourmates Ben Harper, Mason Jennings, Matt Costa and Neil Halstead. Directed by Emmett Malloy (who also shot Thicker than Water with Johnson in 2000), I find its approach comparable to Wilco's I am Trying to Break Your Heart in that it interposes concert footage shot from amazing perspectives with interviews and behind the scenes footage that really exposes what a great bunch of guys are behind such enjoyable music. While yes I concede that there are some grainy and blurred scenes (or footage that looks like it is shot from a cell phone) - I see these as artistically compelling elements that even on HD I find are a true enhancement to the visual experience. I'd choose a live DVD such as this over a straight-on concert DVD for a performer such as Jack Johnson, for it is the perfect milieu for the sentimentality that is so deeply steeped in his music. The surfing footage alone is worth 5 stars - if you haven't seen/heard of the standing wave on the Eisbach River in Munich, the scene here of Johnson riding it is a real treat.Read more ›

I like to throw on musical Blu-rays to listen to when I am making/eating dinner. It's good when they are just one concert playing through so that way you can easily put on a song you like or just listen to one song after another. Some of the better blu-rays in this genre are Dave Mathews, Chris Botti, Keane and John Mayer.

This Jack Johnson blu-ray is more of a documentary which follows Jack on the European leg of his tour. It's interesting to watch the first time but after that you just kinda want to hear the music and don't need to hear the stories or see some of the events over and over and over. In that way it's more like a movie and I think owning movies is stupid. You watch something once and then you don't need to watch it again for a long long time. There are a number of good musical tracks on this Blu-ray but I wish it was just one straight forward concert instead of pseudo indie-docu-film. I also don't like the washed out effect the director choose to go with it, it doesn't do the HD capabilities of blu-ray and my 50 inch plasma any justice. Also, alot of the songs are cut short/abbreviated towards the end of the film.

This is great if you are Jack Johnson fan. For the rest I would say rent it, watch it once, and look to buy other blu-rays for music.

don't let the 1 star reviews prevent you from purchasing this blu ray, it is awesome. someone said there is too much footage of driving in cars and blah blah blah... i really disagree, the blu ray shows songs from several venues throughout europe. What other reviewers considered boring i really enjoyed. you get a feel of the local atmosphere where jack plays his shows. in one scene he starts jammin with a group of musicians on the street, its really cool. like i said dont let the one star reviews stop you. awesome concert... my only complaint is that it's only like an hour and 20 minutes. for the same price dave matthews and tim reynolds give us 3.5 hrs of blu ray. still worth the 15 tho

(for the record i have almost 500 blu rays and this is the first time ive ever felt the need to put a review on amazon because it was being unfairly rated)

I love the music of Jack Johnson and was excited to see his newest hit Blu-Ray. At first I thought my player or TV was screwed up. The video looked like it was filmed with a cell phone camera that they then up-converted.

If this was a CD I would have gave it 4 stars but since it's a Blu-Ray, with the video brings it all the way down to a 1! Yes it is that bad!

:( Come on Jack, I know you can do better!!

In the end, buy the CD.

When I saw this Jack Johnson "En Concert" Blu-Ray I expected a high quality live concert! It is called "En Concert", however, you get a ton of black and white film footage of a camera man filming country side images from the car window as they drive past and images of the band surfing with some clips of live shows. I am a fan of Jack Johnson but this is not worth the money...buy the cd for the live music only.

Obviously these 1 star voters have NEVER seen Jack's surf movies. Pick up a copy of Thicker Than Water and you'll know Jack is about 180 degrees from Michael Bay. En Concert is filmed in beautiful, grainy, raw, color and B&W 16mm. No tripods or fancy flying boom shots. No CG or fancy costumes. It's upclose and personal, not gimmicky and glossy - just like Jack's music!

Is it a BluRay to put on to wow your neighbors with your 70" 1080 plasma? No. BUT the DTS-MA is ASTOUNDING. Pure audio bliss! So those who "get it" will love it. Everyone else is welcome to their unfortunate opinion about filmmaking.
