Michael Franti and Spearhead Play Melbourne and Sydney This September

Rock, Hip Hop and Reggae Hybrid Michael Franti & Spearhead will be touring Australia this September, bringing along their dynamic new music to Melbourne and Sydney.

The tour comes as a celebration of the June release of their newest album, Soulrocker. The album is Michael Franti & Spearhead’s ninth studio album and landed at #1 on the iTunes Alternative Album Chart. Soulrocker delivers a fresh take to the group’s powerful mix of hip-hop, rock, folk, and reggae influences, and expands into the electronic music genre, fulfilling Franti’s mission of making impassioned and danceable music.

Michael Franti and his band Spearhead will be sharing their new music and good vibes in Australia off the back of an extensive U.S. tour.

Being one of the planet’s most uplifting musicians, Michael Franti has dedicated his life to spreading the joy of music and positivity to millions of people across the globe. Michael Franti is a household name in the country and he has won the hearts of many Australians, not only for his soulful and conscious music and intoxicating performances, but for his humanitarian activism; “Right now is a very challenging time for people, for our nation and the planet,” says Franti, a past recipient of Global Exchange’s Domestic Human Rights Award; “But I really believe that music can help fight war and violence and hatred. The world needs that more than ever now, so my intention with this album was to make music that could bring people together”.
