We have received word that Switchfoot are excited to host and play a benefit concert at Belhaven University in Jackson, MS for the John M. Perkins Foundation on September 29th!

Here are the details:

- Tickets go on sale Friday, September 17th, and FOTF presale begins today! Tickets are limited, so be sure to grab them now!

- If you are interested in contributing to the JMP Foundation and will not be able to attend the show, please visit jmpf.org. All proceeds for this event will benefit the John M Perkins Foundation.

- “The concert will be a celebration of the life and words of John M Perkins- a man who refused to believe that the present injustices are final. For me, this concert was born out of the song of a man who rose above his situation. A man who lived out what he believed: Love is louder than violence. Love is louder than hatred.” - Jon Foreman

Here is the flier for the event:

^Share it around!


I am thoroughly impressed by the things Switchfoot are doing for this great man. John M. Perkins' story is one that has been overlooked and underexposed by much of the mainstream media, so the fact that the band is looking to use its position to shine light on Mr. Perkins' story is fantastic. If you are in the Jackson area, please make an effort to go out and support this evening! It sounds like it's going to be a remarkable night of beauty, social justice, and the human heart.
