In 2015, Switchfoot singer-guitarist Jon Foreman performed at 25 San Diego County locations in 24 hours. His goal was to raise money for his band’s nonprofit Bro-Am Foundation, which in the past 12 years has raised more than $1 million to help various local children’s charities. The one-day tour found him performing pop-up shows everywhere from a Mexican restaurant and the trolley stop at Fashion Valley to the Spreckels Organ Pavilion in Balboa Park, where his mom, Jan, accompanied him. Filmmaker Robbie Jeffers, photographer Erick Frost and crew member Ryan Nichols were among those on hand to document Foreman’s county-wide trek. Now, the leader of the Grammy Award-winning Switchfoot is on a national solo tour that features both the movie about his “25 in 24” marathon and a live concert. It includes a homecoming show here Saturday.

Jon Foreman: “The 25 in 24 Tour — A Movie, A Concert”: 7 p.m. Saturday. Balboa Theater, 868 Fourth Ave., Gaslamp Quarter. $11.50-$31.50, plus service charges. (800) 745-3000.
