GRAMMY-Nominated Common Kings Announces Fall Tour. They have renamed it the “Road to Maui Tour.” Julian Marley and Sammy Johnson will join the tour for select dates!

Captivating fans with their seductive island rhythms and pop-infused choruses, Common Kings have embarked on their Fall 2023 Tour. It is in support of their new full-length offering– ‘CELEBRATION,’ out now.

Fundraiser for Maui Fire Victims

At this point they are proud to announce that in part, the tour will be a fundraiser to support Maui recovery efforts. Families devastated from the Lāhainā fires will directly benefit. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Kīnā’ole Foundation’s Road to Maui Fund. Common Kings kicked off their tour at the end of August on the Big Island with a special stop at Lāhainā for an impromptu performance for residents and aid workers.

“It is with humble intentions we express our immediate desires to assist the people of Maui during this critical time. Together we are coordinating efforts with community leaders and Maui based organizations to develop a Road to Maui Campaign dedicated to providing immediate support and sustained contingency recovery efforts,” comments Common Kings.

They continue, “We invite our fans, family, and network to join us in our endeavors to restore spirits, revive communities, and rebuild the historic city of Lāhainā. Existing plans are in the works to end our Road to Maui Tour with a community event in Maui. It will be focused around rejuvenating spirits and fostering community resilience.”

New Acts to Join Tour

And in the immediate news, while on tour they were due to perform with a variety of bands including the renowned Jamaican band Steel Pulse. However, in a recent announcement, due to uncertain logistical and external challenges, Steel Pulse were forced to pull off of the tour with Common Kings.

Nevertheless, in a short amount of time, Common Kings coordinated with CELEBRATION album collaborator Sammy Johnson and legendary Julian Marley to join the Road to Maui Tour. These artists will appear on select west coast and midwest dates! In addition, American Idol winner Iam Tongi and Jakobs Castle will be supporting Common Kings on tour too.
