Jack Johnson - Jack Johnson Was On His Way To Bonnaroo When He Landed Headline Gig
The star was asked to step in to replace the folk rockers after they pulled out of the show so bassist Ted Dwane can recover from surgery to remove a blood clot from his brain.
Johnson has now revealed he was already en-route to the event when he received a phone call offering him the coveted headline slot, and the Upside Down hitmaker couldn't believe the coincidence.
He says, "I was on my way to Bonnaroo to sit in on a set with my friends (band) ALO... when we got the call asking if I could possibly help out and cover for Mumford & Sons. I heard the news about Ted Dwane and was happy to know that he was on his way to recovery. I called my band and asked if they were up for it."
Johnson headlines the event on Saturday night (15Jun13).
