Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals are gearing up for the rescheduled dates of their Call It What It Is Tour in Australia this November. After reuniting after a seven-year break, the group graced our shores for an exciting 2015’s Bluesfest. Unfortunately, those of us who couldn’t make it to Bluesfest weren’t treated to sideshows, making the upcoming tour all the more exciting!
Originally set to tour in March, Ben Harper & Co postponed the tour to put the finishing touches on their first new album in eight years. Receiving favorable reviews, Call It What It Is was praised for its diverse fusion of blues, reggae, and funk, with politically conscious lyrics. The tour is sure to be worth the wait with Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals having had time to perfect the tracks live around the world – most recently in sunny California.
The tour will take place in some of Australia’s most iconic spots, from Brisbane’s Riverstage to Melbourne’s Sidney Myer Music Bowl. If you somehow managed to miss out on tickets the first time around, you’re in luck – Speaker TV has some double passes to give away to the following shows:
THE RIVERSTAGE, BRISBANE – THURSDAY NOVEMBER 24
SIDNEY MYER MUSIC BOWL, MELBOURNE – SATURDAY NOVEMBER 26
