Ben Harper Australian Tour

Ben Harper makes his welcome return to Australia this coming November, bringing his first-ever acoustic headline tour to BrisbaneMelbourne and Sydney. With a long and rich touring history and a great affinity with Australian audiences, this two-time Grammy award winning artist’s first time solo performance has been a long time coming.

Ben Harper has been besieged by fan requests for this kind of intimate outing since his acclaimed acoustic performance at the inaugural Bonnaroo Music Festival in 2002. A world renowned musician, songwriter, producer and activist, his unceasing commitment to international touring has helped him grow a fan base that now spans several continents. Whether it’s through the soul of southern Gospel, '70s funk, blues, reggae, or straight-forward rock 'n' roll, Harper and his trademark Weissenborn guitar continue to stun audiences with incendiary live performances and timeless songwriting.

A collaborator by nature, Harper has recorded and performed with a long list of artists including Ringo Starr, Pearl Jam, Jackson Browne, Tom Morello, Rickie Lee Jones, Taj Mahal, Jack Johnson and Vanessa Da Mata, including a career high industry accolade - his Grammy award winning partnership with the Blind Boys of Alabama.

And while past tours have given us a taste of just how special a solo performance might be - this is the first time Australian audiences will experience the two-hour plus, one-man acoustic Ben Harper journey. With a back catalogue spanning ten studio albums and 18 years - and performing a selection of career highlights from his 1994 debut ‘Welcome to the Cruel World’, to his latest album, ‘Give Till It’s Gone’ - this promises to be a night of his finest moments that any true fan should not miss.

Tickets for ‘An Evening With Ben Harper’ go on sale from 9am Wednesday July 11, with pre-sales commencing 1pm Friday July 6.
