Ben started his acoustic performance with a never-before-heard alternate version of "Steal My Kisses." He switched to an electric guitar for "Please Bleed" and "The Woman in You". Original Innocent Criminal Leon Mobley sat in on percussion from "When It's Good" through "Sexual Healing". A few hours after his main-stage acoustic set with Leon Mobley, Ben sat in on lap steel with Jack Johnson on the second stage. They capped his set with the Band of Gypsys' "Who Knows" and Jack's radio hit, "Flake." Leon, meanwhile, played with Widespread Panic during "drums" later in the evening.

hey everyone
I just got back from the concert in berlin 22/5 and I want to say that this was without any doubt one of the great moments musically for me....And now I just cant Escape that "when its good" song. Im working on doing that thang he does but if anyone knows how to do it with the slide and maybe can tell me if the guitar has some specific tuning....feel super unearhtly free to contact me. I Crave to do this song. Ben must have been far off deep in space when he made that screamingly awsome song. Hope to listen to Mr. Harper and All of his Criminals many years from now....

Words escape me. I have never in my life experienced so much emotion expressed from a single person. I cried! Who else could silence 40,000+ people. I still get the chills when I think about his performance. Ben needs to tour. I need more!!!

Ben was definitely the highlight at Bonnaroo!! There was a great variety of music but Ben gave me the goosebumps...AND THAT'S WHAT IT'S AL ABOUT! The "Pleasure & Pain" was also a great surprise to watch at the cinema tent...can't wait to own!! Matter of fact, can't wait for Ben to hit the road again!!! Thanks for a wonderfully inspiring show!

This show was awesome! The whole festival was amazing! Ben played in a tough spot at 3:00-4:30 in the afternoon, but he pulled it off splendidly. Also, Ben's collaborations with Jack Johnson were definitely a top 5 moment of the weekend.
