Jake Shimabukuro tickets - Jake Shimabukuro Tour

Jake Shimabukuro Tour

Sometimes an artist comes along that has such immense talent that they completely destroy any prior thoughts about a particular style or instrument, finding popularity by travelling a road that few others dare to take. This is what Jake Shimibukuro does with his incredible abilities with the ukulele, as he has found himself an international sensation who travels all over, appearing on television shows and touring with other famous artists. He has long been a hot commodity outside of the US, and the instant that he was discovered in the United States he became a phenomenon that people simply can't get enough of. His live performances are absolutely amazing and really need to be experience to get the full picture of just how deep and far Jake's skills can go. Luckily for any fans and newcomers he tours extensively and often finds himself going from coast to coast in an attempt to share his music with others, giving fans plenty of chances to see him live. So if you've been looking for a good show to blow you away with a style that you haven't before witnessed, then make sure to see Jake Shimibukuro when he takes to stages across the country starting in January 2014 and going strong all the way through April. Tickets are now on sale at StubHub for any and all of these shows, and it would be wise to grab your tickets sooner rather than later as they are highly like to sell out fast!


About The Artist

Picking up the ukulele at age four when he was given one by his ukulele player mother, Jake Shimibukuro quickly came to master it and initially came to prominence in 1998 with the band "Pure Heart". This group released three albums and won a multitude of awards for their work, but only lasted a few years. After releasing an album with a modified version of the band, and winning awards for that as well, Jake went solo and signed with Sony Japan which helped take his music international where it became a massive success overseas. It was in 2005 that he was able to take his music stateside through his own music label, and found incredible success through his albums there. He has created ten albums that have been released in the US and ten albums that have been released only in Japan, all of which have found great success.


Breakthrough Album

Sometimes it takes time for people to catch on to a good thing, as was definitely the case for Jake Shimibuko. While people throughout Hawaii, Japan, and even the rest of the United States to an extent had become rabid fans of Jake's work, it wasn't until the advent of YouTube and a random person posting a video of him playing that he got the attention he deserved. It was in 2006 that someone uploaded a video of Jake playing George Harrison's "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" with the ukulele in his typical virtuosic style, and it quickly went viral, garnering well above 12 million views as of today. This viral sensation spread across the world and Jake quickly found himself with invitations to appear on television shows and work or tour with a myriad of respected artists such as Yo-Yo Ma, Jimmy Buffet, and more. It was that same year that Jake released his fifth US album, the aptly titled "Gently Weeps", and it immediately peaked at #2 on Billboard's Top World Music Albums chart that year.


Jake Shimabukuro Trivia

As is common with artists, Jake has taken part in a multitude of charities in an effort to help those in need, but few have taken it to the level that he has. While Jake was a major spokesperson for the non-profit organization Music Is Good Medicine, focusing on encouraging healthy lifestyles and connections to music through his extensive outreach programs and performances, when this organization dissolved he decided to form his own charity. Known as the Four Strings Foundation, this charity focuses on music education workshops throughout the country and also helps by providing instruments and tools for music teachers and classes.


Fan Experience

Seeing Jake Shimibukuro perform live is an experience that you won't soon forget, as it's not often that you get the chance to see a virtuoso of this caliber come to a venue near you. He has traveled the world and shared his musical abilities with anyone willing to listen, and has remained a musical celebrity for years on end for his unrivaled skill. If you've never had the chance to see a brilliant artist take to the stage and unleash their musical mastery live, then you owe it to yourself to make it out to one of Jake's upcoming performances! It's amazing just how talented a single person can be with an instrument, and seeing him live feels equivalent to watching history being made, as there have been few individuals if any that have been able to attain the level of skill with the ukulele that Jake has.
