HE went full-tilt rock with his Relentless 7 brothers but now Ben Harper is heading back to his acoustic roots for a November tour.

An Evening With Ben Harper will be at the Sydney Opera House on November 12 and for anyone who has had the privilege of witnessing his one-man mode, this will be one very special night.

There will be a few hundred people who will remember when the much-loved folk rocker performed solo at the tiny Independent Theatre in North Sydney in 2001 for Triple J's Live At The Wireless.

Tickets for the Opera House show go on sale on July 11, with a Live Nation pre-sale from July 6. more»
