Moved from the Cove @ Cal Expo due to overwhelming demand for tickets.
show was soild. i had seen jack johnson live a couple times but never ben. i was pretty much blown away at the energy of the show towards the end. the bass, bongo, and slide guitar solos in particular...thanks...
man, this was the best show i have been to in a long time. jack was awesome as usual, covering sublime, marley, and buffet. pirate looks at forty is one of my all time favorite songs. ben was awesome on stage. doing everything including falling down. i thought steal my kisses was great, i loved juan's bass solo, keep up the kick ass shows, come to bridge school!!!!!
Jack Johnson is a great performer, and did a great job as an opener. However, no one can match Ben Harpers stage presence. You can't understand until you see him live, but Harper fits into the same category as music legends like Zeppelin, Dylan, Hendrix, and Marley. Harpers insane range as a musician is what makes him so fun to watch. Even if you are not a fan, the concert will wipe you off your feet. Harper for life!
All around solid show. The woman in you was so badass. I was more then disappointed that Jack didn't come out at the end for the encore but I understand that you guys have to change it up a little. You more then made up for it in Berkeley though! Come back soon! Screw your other dates and surprise us at Bridge! :)
Awsome show!!! After letting it all soak in I can honestly say this was the best concert ide ever seen! Jack was great! Ben was even beter than I had imagined! EVERY song was awesome!!! I luved "when its good" and the crowd clapping and keeping the beat. that was cool! " ANother lonely day" was beutifull and I'm really glad I got to hear Ben play that. ( one of my fav's) All in all..... a spectacular evening!!! Thanks to Ben and Jack!
I admit this was my first BHIC show. It was everything that I was told and imagined it could be. Even a little spirtual!! Two things, Jack -> amazing performance. Stir it up and Badfish were awesome, but covering Buffett was killer. Ben -> Amazing show. Your energy was amazing and the constant references to the crowd were ill. Even down to the fact that you were now running for Govenor. Hope you're ok from the fall and keep up the great performances. See you in Berkeley!!!!!!
Jack and Ben ... thanks so much for a wonderful performance. The banter w/the crowd, the awesome music ... it's something that can't be put into words. Also attended the Reno show and these are my first 2 Ben Harper concerts ... I won't let another one get by. Both of you guys and your bands are awesome and worth more than the price of admission on your own. I'll see ya on the road, and listen daily to your great CD's. Keep it coming!!
THAT WAS THE BEST CONCERT EVER! It left me speechless! It was unbelievable and my friends and I are still talking about it the next day. I had not seen Jack or Ben in concert before and this blew my mind. Both artists played so well and I will definetly be attending another conert of Ben's and Jack's the next time I can get tickets. It was the greatest experience and the music could not have been better. I especially loved Jack's cover of Sublime's "Badfish" and BHIC's "Burn One Down" - The whole show was incredible!!!! I can't express it... THANKS BEN AND JACK - YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME
P.S. I hope Ben's ok from that fall... broken guitar, broken mic stand and hopefully no broken bones
ben ben ben ben ben.......holy shit that was the most life altering show I have ever been to. I have been a huge fan for years, and I was so excited the whole day before the show that I almost threw up! Every single song gave me chills, in a nut shell it was the best show I have ever seen by far....i love ben harper!!+
I'LL START BY SAYING LAST NIGHT WAS ANOUTHER BAD ASS SHOW, WHAT ELSE WOULD YOU EXPECT FROM BHIC. JUST A FEW COMPLAINTS BEN IF YOUR LISENING, SEXUAL HEALING IS VERY PLAYED OUT ALONG WITH FADED/WHOLE LOTTA LOVE. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE OLD BEN? LAST NIGHTS SET WAS 14 OUT OF 17 NEW SONGS WHAT ABOUT US FANS FROM THE START WHO REALLY APPRICIATE THE OLD ROOTS MAN? 14 NEW SONGS OUT OF A 20 SONG SET... GIVE US MORE OLD MATERIAL, THIS WAS NOT A BEN HARPER SHOW I WOULD HAVE SEEN 6 YEARS AGO. I WILL SUPPORT YOU UNTILL NO DOUBT.
Oh man! that show was soooo awesome. the best live performance of ben and jack ever! i was so stoked to be there. i would recommend to everyone to listen to jack and ben.
Last nights show lives as a testament to the power and beauty of both Jack Johnson and Ben Harper, who put on the better performance can not be defined. The show, mc daddy hands down incredible, each played encores, Ben two, even fell during the second encore and played on incredible incredible. Ended the show with a cover of Zepplin's whole lot of love, I don't think Led Zepplin could even do a better job anyhow I cannot express into words one the most amazing shows I have ever seen, if you missed I pity, the energy, the music it was intense, amazing and in a word awe-inspiring, like even if you don't care for Jacka nd Ben, silly, you would have been moved by last nights incredible amazing like yeah yeah yeah I am still shaking performance
