Aspiration Entertainment, in partnership with lowercase people, announced the release of the documentary film 25 IN 24, which follows Switchfoot frontman Jon Foreman on his journey playing 25 shows in 24 hours. Adding to the release Foreman also announced a spring 2018 tour that includes a live performance and full screening of the film.
On October 24 at 10am, Jon Foreman and his friends embarked on a music journey throughout San Diego aiming to play 25 shows in 24 hours. With venues including a children's hospital, a wedding, and a Mexican restaurant, this 24-hour musical experience explores the polarity of everyday life, taking viewers to places that only music can go. Through his journey, Foreman discovers that the road less traveled is always worth the risk, and sometimes the only way to hold on is to let go.
“Since childhood, music was this playground where I could actually enunciate the way I felt about life. Music was that escape and entrance into reality that I could find in no other place,” Foreman states in the film. “Playing 25 shows in 24 hours is one of the strangest dreams I’ve ever chased down. But underneath the scheduling and logistics, I was hoping that something very simple would be communicated. The honesty of song brings people together in a way that nothing else can. The sheer joy of music finds us as children once again: hoping, dreaming, and vulnerable. I wanted to see my hometown like that: shining through the eyes of a song," said Foreman.
“25 IN 24 is one of those rare films that combines everything we care about: great art made by great people for great purposes,” said Erik Lokkesmoe, principal of Aspiration Entertainment. “The aspirational audience is growing, as people look for stories, music, and films that are more than mere entertainment and Jon’s film and music do exactly that, inviting us into something deeper and more transcendent. We are honored to be a partner with him and his team on bringing this special film to audiences worldwide.”
On March 1, Foreman will embark on the 25 IN 24 Tour, where he will perform live as an acoustic trio and screen the film for attendees. Tickets for all tour dates will go on sale Friday, December 8, 2017 at 10am local time and can be purchased at www.jonforeman.com.
