Mute Records is proud to announce Jose Gonzalez’ Green Tour of North America in the spring. The tour, which starts on February 29th in Miami, FL, is in partnership with Reverb(www.reverbrock.org), a non-profit organization designed to educate and engage music fans and promote environmental sustainability. They work closely with artists to create earth-friendly events and tours. As part of the greening of Gonzalez’ upcoming tour, his rider will include biodegradable catering products, and a reduction of plastic water bottles will be facilitated by providing his crew with re-usable water bottles to carry throughout the tour. In addition, Gonzalez and Reverb will calculate the CO2 footprint of the tour and neutralize emissions from venue energy use, ground transportation, flights and hotel accommodations by supporting clean renewable energy projects.There will be a 50 cent add on to general ticket purchases that will support Reverb’s greening efforts. Pre-sale ticket purchasers via Ticketstoday (links below) will also have the option to add an additional 50 cents to NativeEnergy’s CO2 Offset program. At the shows, fans will have the opportunity to purchase a custom Jose Gonzalez sticker, the money from which will be used to purchase carbon offsets generated from travel to and from the show. Reverb will also have a presence at the merch booth.

Gonzalez’ green tour follows tours this past fall with many sold out shows, and will see him showcasing songs from his latest record IN OUR NATURE (released Sept. 25, 2007 on Mute). The album Pitchfork suggested showed enough “talent to make good on those lofty Pink Moon comparisons,” won widespread acclaim, garnering inclusion on best of 2007 year end lists and securing Gonzalez spots on The Late Show with Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Kimmel Live. IN OUR NATURE has also been nominated for “Americana Album of the Year” by the 2008 Plug Awards (http://www.plugawards.com) and Gonzalez himself is up for “Male Artist of the Year”.
