UK Report

Five British venues in a row, after the Hyde Park concert in London, we’ve headed straight to Birmingham, then Newquay, and finally Manchester.

In all those venues, we’ve collaborated with reps from Surfers Against Sewage to promote their actions, especially some recently scheduled beach cleanings over the UK. SAS is doing very active job here, and it’s a very good thing that they joined the All At Once community along with Surfrider Foundation.

This UK tour has been a fantastic opportunity to bring our voice to the British community and globally promote our activities. At every venue, we had hundreds of names to our pledge signing list, and enforced the impact of our message.

After a stop in Birmingham, where the crowd was quite and intensely focused on Jack, we headed to Newquay, where the first venue was cancelled due to the bad weather. Fortunately we were able to do the second Newquay show between showers and blowing wind on dark clouds. Jack then said goodbye to UK in Manchester on an inspired set.

Next stop Paris, for the unique French venue of the tour.
