I must say I loved your concert (as I always do). I loved it because I love your music, your soul, your amazing lyrics and great sound (your bass and guitar are spectacular, and ben's voice gives me the chills).
But... what happened to the encore? To all the acustic songs? To hits like power of the gospel, waiting on an angel, sexual healing, steal my kisses and many many more?
Please, come back soon and bless us whith another concert!

This was the third time i saw you playing and altought this was short show it was an excellent show. THANK YOU for be in Portugal... You've played for 70,000 people, amaizing, isn't it?

I saw your show last summer in the UK, and I went to Portugal to attend your concert again. I don't know what was the problem but I enjoyed more the 1st time I saw you playing live. I think the sound in Portugal wasn't good enough and Ben's voice wasn't as powerfull as it usually is (maybe you were just tired). Maybe, your music is meant to be played indoors in smaller venues. Anyways, I hope you come back with new and beautiful songs.

You people.... I has present in all of Ben's concert's here in Portugal, you didn't see Ben Harper at is full potencial, what you saw, was just entertainment. Unfortunatly.... Ben, Portugal doesn't forget you, and i know that you dont forget us, i dont mean to be rude, but i've see much better. I'm sorry but i was disappointing...

the setlist made me think that you didn't come here to please the masses but for those who, like me, have been listening to your music since the high school and cares about the message.
thank you for the war, hope you have enjoyed the positive vibes stage.

Jah love

As usual, Ben and his Innocent Criminals showed why so many people love them in Portugal...

The setlist was great, it was amazing to listen to Jah Work, Breakin Down and Please Bleed... I wasn't expecting those ones...

The acoustic part was missed...

For when another acoustic concert in Portugal???

anonymous's picture

You forget to sign for us the song steal my kisses and the acustic walk away.
All the rest was great! When you start to dance on stage was amazing...

this is how i was for at least a couple of hours after the end of the show.
your and your band performance was just so powerfull, that all of those 50 or 60 thousand people felt the vibrations your music sent to us.

it's almost amazing to see the empathy between ben the innocent criminals and portuguese people.
your music touches me and so many others in such different ways that it is impossible for us to just sit down and listen.
we have to be apart of your music, of your show.

i'm still impressed... and i've been to every show you gave in portugal, and this last one left a big impression, in my mind and soul.

almost perfect.. jah work, breaking down, please bleed, DOTI feat. donavon, amazing amen omen.. but what ever happened to the typical acoustic encore? we missed it.. hence the almost perfect gig.
