I dont't think words justify the magic created in the atmosphere that night. When Ben and Jack weaved the spell of their music i was brought to tears and i have never stopped smiling , it was almost if you were alone in a room with them.The crowd was very passionate and resectful. I am never gonna be able to describe it.But thankyou so much Ben and Jack for giving me inspiration and cherished memories.

Its 14 hours after the concert and I'm still crying from your encore of 'Waiting for an Angle.' Ben, your voice is truly a blessing. The joy and truth that resonates throughout your music is inspirational.

Its true that last night was an amazing experience. It takes a lot for a Canberra audience to go wild. You, Jack and the truly stupendous Innocent Crimminals pushed our buttons and gave us a night fot those of us who were there will never, ever forget.

You, the Innocent Criminals, and Jack were totally amazing. I thankyou so much for coming to Canberra, thankyou for your warm wishes on the Canberra Bushfires, and thankyou for taking the time out after the show to meet the fans.
You are an inspiration!

Ben Harper and his band were absolutely phenomenal. Other bands that I have experienced at the Royal Theatre are Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, the Tea Party, and Tool. None of these concerts, although all amazing, were as consistently uplifting as Ben Harper.

The intensity that Ben created through the movement of a thumb, and the unconditional love and respect that the entire band showed for the Canberra audience (an audience that too often goes ignored by big bands) is proof enough that Ben believes in what he is doing. What he is doing is giving the voice of love a genuine form. That form is the band's progression throughout time and space.

While I enjoyed Jack Johnson immensely, I found that Ben had an extra edge to his being and to his music. Both artists - through their calm demeanour and deep respect for us - gave platform to the voice of love. However, Ben at times took this voice to a spontaneous level of rhythmic hysteria, with a leap in the air or a tear in the eye.

Thank you, sincerely. My smile keeps getting bigger.
