That was the best Benny concert that I saw.. I listened Skin before, and I really got surprised...

But that concert!!
I went there alone, I really loved that moment, that was one moment, just for me, hope that you know what I mean.
And the concert, in the city where I live, it was wonderful.
I take with me that moment: Ben explanations about that brasilian instrument, that wood box before performing "Blessed to be a witness".

Big time!! really wonderful

Music is a large part of my life. I was born in 1983(a merman i should turn to be...!)and i've always thought that it's a crap, cause i could never see people like Jimi Hendrix or Led Zeppelin play (a)live... But that night in Bologna, as i was looking at the stage and listening to Ben & his guitars, i realized that in front of me there was the direct son of my myths. But HE was not a myth, he was simply REAL, and he was there also for me! So that night i deeply felt, another time, how life can be beautiful...

Thank you Ben, for your music and your words, truly. See you soon here in Italy, i hope!

PS
Juan: the Greatest!!!

Absolutely brilliant! Travelled to Bologna from London as I missed on the Astoria show in London. I saw Ben in Brittany a few years back but this show was mind-blowing! Ben really seemed to be enjoying himself as he kept on coming back and playing more songs, he even had a bit of a boogie while the rest of the band were rocking. The Innocent Criminals are definitely one of the tightest bands around, very impressive.. Juan is a virtuoso, very entertaining. The Italian crowd was also great, singing along to even the newer songs, I think Ben was very touched.
God bless you guys for a wonderful evening of music!

On another note why is Ben Harper playing so rarely in the uk? One show only in London in a small-ish venue (the Astoria - impossible to book tickets) when I know he's touring all across Europe. I know a new date has been added in Brixton, that's great but why is the uk music scene so reluctant to cover/support Ben's music?

I wish I could be the first one to post a review, like it's been for the concert in Milan, 2 years ago. But it's great to see that I'm not alone, that we are more and more every time..and every time we just melt into each other and become one, listening to Ben, to Juan, to Lean, to Oliver....
I just love them all.
Today it's my birthday and Ben gave me such a great present with his concert.
What I felt it's really difficult to explain, so I just want to thank everybody for bein'there last night, and most of all I wanna thank Ben and his great musicians for givin' us all this amazing feelings since years.
I'll always follow them.

We'll rise, rise, rise...

I was there in Milan last year and enjoined so much I had to share the feeling with my beloved one in Bologna...
Waiting on an Angel was a long kiss we'll never forget.
Thanks!!!

It was really a dream, from 12 in the morning waiting for your magic, so many little stars in the arena looking at you, listening to your songs, dreaming with your words and your sound. I'm still dreaming and I am already waiting for the next time you'll come back to Italy.

Thanks a lot, Ben you really make the world a better place!

*** W O W ***

this was my first Ben Harper concert. I had to travel from Austria to Bologna to see him performing live... and ... I would do it again!!! It was amazing to see him live, the quality of his music is awesome. He played about 2 and a half hours, and it looked like he had some fun too!

The only negative thing is that some people can not shut up during the quiet songs. Great versions of Waiting on an angel and Walk away, but some idiots must screech.

My first Ben Harper show was awesome, hope to get the possibility to see him again, maybe in AUSTRIA?

Why, why, why I ask myself Ben so rarely tours Italy? This is my first show and it just blew me away.
Such passion and love in a performance.
Personally it's the first time that I don't need to burn one down, to feel so hi and low to enjoy the show. We were the show.
Thank u so much, thank u.

Third time, yesterday night! What makes people shiver and look for their friends' eyes is not good music, not only at least: honesty, passion, commitment, high words humbly spoken, this is it!
If Bob was alive now he would be pride and call you a son, keep vibing for us Ben.
PSs
Juan: larger than life every time!!
Leon: sure it was only one djembe?
Oliver: massive, you're the spine!
COLOSSIIII!!!!
