Solo acoustic encore. "Boots Like These" included a tease of Marvin Gaye's "Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)."

Indeed Ben Harper is a great artist. I wish we could also see him in one of these soon, let us know please! :)

I have seen Ben perform live since 1996 Alachua music Harvest. I am continually drawn to his live shows all over this great country. I purposefully never really gave R7 studio stuff a proper listening, because I wanted to hear it first live and base my decision on raw feeling. I was not disappointed by Ben and R7, They put on a fantastic show from the opening notes, with Ben being very talkative with stories about the Weisenborn and growing up in Claremont at the family music store watching his grandpa play and fix giutars.

So, as I stated before, I have seen Ben perform live since 1996 Alachua music Harvest. I am continually drawn to his live shows all over this great country. I purposefully never really gave R7 studio stuff a proper listening, because I wanted to hear it first live and base my decision on raw feeling. I was not disappointed by Ben and R7, They put on a fantastic show from the opening notes, with Ben being very talkative with stories about the Weisenborn and growing up in Claremont at the family music store watching his grandpa play and fix giutars. The comment about Tuba players was classic. The show was almost three hours. It was so awesome to hear a Mini-Acoustic set with the respectful crowd ( not a peep, I was so proud) cooperating. What a treat. The class act that Ben is, he came back out and out of respect for breaking the curfew, he instead of playing a final song, acknowledged fans in the audience by name, shirt colors, front row crew, balcony dwellers and everyone in between. Mr Harper and R7 was a great show by as humble a superstar you will ever find. I enjoyed the show tremendously and can say that I truly do enjoy the new tunes.

Truly amazing show. One of bis best shows I have seen in many years. Currently in Orlando for his follow up show..let's hope it is even better.
