After 9 years Ben Harper and The Innocent Criminals had been again in Brazil. I went to their concert in Florianopolis-SC (because here is where I live) after a surgery and I don't have words to describe it, you had to be there to feel what I felt and then understand what I'm trying to tell, specially at the moment that I was so close to him singing With My Own Two Hands. I was seeing him just a few meters from me, and I couldn't believe. The only way I had for pay that was to scream his name louder than everybody else in the end of the show. "Ben Harper, Ben Harper", that was the moment I think he felt what I felt during all the show. He seems happy and thankful. Well, I just wanted to share some images I have on my mind and hardly I will forget them because Brazil loves Ben Harper and I hope he come back soon, I just want to scream his name again and repay what he makes for the music and for the good music lovers. Thanks BHIC.

Im brazilian, and i lived in the US some year ago, but i was too yong and didnt know Bens music yet! But when I came back to Brazil I went to a party and heard his music... I fell in love right there! So i started looking for his songs in the internet, buying his Cds, DVDs.. His voice has something different, something that is sweet and strong at the same time! Well he came here last mouth, but I live too far from where he was singing, I had no time(because of work) and money to go... I just wish he could come back here, or that i could go back to the US, just to see him singing.... He is PERFECT! at all!!! I love him and his songs, and Im sure, one day i will get to see his concert...

Dear Ben and IC ,

thank you all for a great show , I was very fortunate to be there 2 days in a row in Sao Paulo , and if there was 3 or 4 shows I'd be there to all of them !
Great music , great energy , I left with a big smile on my face , smile that I still have when I remember how good those shows were.
Please return soon ,

Excuse me Mr, but I have to say that you play Like a King in Floripa!

With My Beloved One By My Side we were sure that you would Bring us the Funk, the soul, the blues, the rock, the reggae in a Better Way.

We were Waiting For You for almost 10 yrs, Waiting on an Angel that plays with the heart and let us with a Satisfied Mind.

Well, Well, Well, what else can I say? Please come back soon as possible to Brazil and to Curitiba! ('cause this tour was just a Temporary Remedy for us).

And doesn't matter How Many Miles Must We March to see you again 'cause we know we're Going to See the King.

Thank you Ben. We're Blessed to be a Witness of your music.

I know Ben since 1997 and I am a big fam of his work. Ben's musics are always played in the meetings of sunset, on the beach. It was a great experience to be able to see Ben playing himself. Florianopolis has never saw a concert as good as this one. Thank you for the opportunity!!!!!

Best Regards,

P.S.: "Don't give up the fight!"

Thank you all again!

The word closest in meaning to the idea that I have about Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals' concert last night is definitely... huh, let's see... It could be AMAZING, but is more than that. It could be MARVELLOUS, but last night was way better than that. It could be "THE BEST CONCERT I'VE EVER SEEN", but it's not a single word. It could be superb, could be admirable, excellent. And it was. It was everything I just said and much, much more. No way to put it into words.

Thank you, Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals. Last night Florianopolis was brighter, better, livelier. All because of you.

One nigh without sleep from a gig, 8 Hours driving from Porto Alegre to Floripa, plus two on the traffic for the concert. I loose the Donavon concert, and arrived on Bens 2nd song. The concert was amazing finally o could hear Gold to Me live... Next step, Sao Paulo...e need to call friends to give me place to stay...

Foi uma noite especial! Depois de um temporal assustador que caiu na hora do show de abertura (Ricardo Marques), ficou um ceu estreladaco!!! O Donavon Frankenreiter preparou bem o terreno e o Ben Harper arrebentou! A banda esteve competente como sempre e, como ocorreu no Free Jazz la em 98, o Juan Nelson foi ovacionado pela galera!!!! So senti falta das musicas do album The Will to Live. Talvez ele tenha deixado de lado porque a ultima turne no Brasil foi deste album. Recado pra galera de Sao Paulo, Rio e Salvador: nao percam esse show por nada nesse mundo!!!

It was a special night! During the first of the opening acts, there was a storm but after a few minutes it turned into a starry night. Donavon Frankenreiter did a nice warming up show for BHIC, which were great as usual. Juan Nelson received a long applause session from the crowd in his Black Rain solo. I missed the songs from 'The Will to Live'. I guess BH decided not to play them because his last tour here was from that album. Hey folks, if you have the chance, don't miss the upcoming shows of this Brazilian Tour.

Nao tenho duvidas que este foi um dos melhores show que ja tive oportunidade de ver. Com uma energia e um carisma incrivel, Ben Harper e sua banda levaram todos a extase coletivo. Espero que em breve o Brasil receba novamente este que e um dos melhores musicos do mundo.

It was 10pm when I decided to go to this great concert. When I got there, they were playing their second music. I can tell you that it i was the best concert of my life.

Never seen such good musicians, playing in such a good sync with such good vibration.
The emotion that harper brings to the crowd is something unforgettable.

I believe in a better way!
