Update November 17, 2022: Unfortunately, Michael Franti & Spearhead are forced to cancel their entire European tour. The tour, which had been postponed several times due to corona, turned out to be no longer feasible due to inflation and rising tour costs. Ticket buyers will be notified by email and will receive a full refund of their purchase as soon as possible.
Statement by Michael Franti (or here in a video message)
Soulrockers – We love coming to Europe and have had some of our best touring moments there over the years. In 2019, we were lucky to come over and play a number of new festivals and some of our favorite venues and quickly booked a follow up tour for 2020. Since the pandemic hit, we have been forced to move that tour multiple times and as a result of the pandemic, inflation, rising touring costs and new obstacles, at this time, we need to cancel our current European tour for Jan/Feb 2023. We know that most of you have held onto your tickets since 2020 and we are so grateful for your support. We are working hard to find a new time to come over and want our European fans to know we miss you all and promise to get back as soon as we can. All tickets and VIP Upgrades will be refunded by your point of purchase.
Thirty years after his breakthrough debut LP Home, Michael Franti tirelessly continues his mission to spark and spread positive changes through music. With his group Spearhead he combines styles such as old-school funk, soul, reggae and hip hop into an infectious mix. Franti is a man of many maxims, such as Everyone Deserves Music, Of Course, You Can and Stay Human.
Stay Human also happens to be the name of his latest multi-media project, a documentary with accompanying record that together weave a continuous story. The core of this story revolves around the different ways in which social media alienates mankind from each other. Franti argues for more gatherings within physical space, learning to cope with the peaks and troughs of life so that you can become your best authentic self.
Taking care of yourself can be done in so many different ways: eating well, taking a long walk OR, of course, attending a Michel Franti & Spearhead concert. Few acts are so adept at giving rambunctious shows that prompt you to jump from start to finish. So in other words let the positive vibes flow in abundance tonight!
