Gonzalez is a noted vegetarian and was pursuing a PhD in biochemistry prior to his successful music career, so it's no surprise that the Swedish guitarist would set his sights on this environmentally conscious package. The tour, in partnership with the green-minded non-profit Reverb, will neutralize its carbon emissions by supporting renewable energy projects.
