It's been three years since this show and looking back it just so happened to be one of those perfect days. You don't get many. This is for the American fans that do not get to see Ben in places like Portugal. Vilar de Mouros is located in the mountains right near the northern border of Spain and Portugal. From the photos you can see the trees that line the venue. It's gorgeous! Also, where else can you drink fifty cent pints of great Portuguese beer? This is one of three European shows where I have tracked Ben down, and even though the set was the shortest, the atmosphere made up for it. Alex, if you ever read this, get in touch with me. You are what made this a perfect day! I'll always try to steal your kisses!
wow.. what a concert. it was a very very beautiful concert. I yield, I cried, I laughed.. and it's in this mix of feelings that the pleisure of watching a Ben's concert comes up.
From the joyness of "Steal my kisses" to the tears of "Waiting on an Angel" or the fury of "Ground on down" everything was beautiful. I'd love to watch ben again, but like one of us said, in a concert just with him.
One more thing... the IC's and Ben are probably one of the best bands in terms of music. Their interaction and feeling is perfect. And Ben's solos for me.. are just those things I can't describe. I won't forget the intro to Forgiven. I felt like I was looking to a god. Wow.
Can't wait to hear more from ben.
Congratulations to Ben and the IC's.

Thank you very much! I really loved the concert... "Whole Lotta Love" was great! I love Led Zeppelin ;) but I prefer Xutos & Pontap
To Mr. Ben Harper the great man on Earth. Just to tell all fan
Ben Harper is without a doubt one of the greatest performers in the world. This opinion maybe clouded from the fact that i am a great fan of him and of his innocent criminals. Althought we (the fans) know "all" of his musics, he can still surprise us with is simplicity and the way he plays all the songs. There are certainly musicians that can play the guitar with great virtue, but they fail to play it with such a feeling like Ben does. He inspired me, even playing songs that are not great hits, he was able in such a relaxed a felt way, to move me and the rest of the audience, in a way that can only be felt live, looking at such a wonderfull person that has the gift to write and play music with such simplicity that touches very complex areas of our innerselves. Thank you Ben Harper, don
