Tom Freund sat in with Ben for "Pleasure and Pain." The song was preceded with a slide improv by Ben into part of Mississippi Fred McDowell's "You Gotta Move" (also played by The Rolling Stones). "With My Own Two Hands" was performed solo acoustic. Ben started "Amen Omen" solo acoustic and was joined by the band. "Better Than I Deserve" is a brand new song written today.

just one more thing to say...

@ben's guitar tech (sorry if i don't know your name)
i'm the guy with the FOM t-shirt in the front row... i just wanted to thank you a million again for those lovely gifts... god bless you :-)

vanloon's picture

It isn't easy to find some words to explain emotions I feel.
I saw you few days before in Milan and I felt a storm of emotions and in Verona all that emotions were stronger and stronger.
Every time I saw you in concert is like the first time.
How I can say?
Simply thank you.
Thank you Ben, Jason, Jesse, Jordan, Justin and all.
Like I a wrote on the t-shirt "You can change our world with your own music!"
...And you're better than we deserve :)

felipe's picture

ben, i really don't know what to say...

every time i see you, with the innocent criminals, relentless7 or alone like a few months back in milan, you just blow me away with your music, your energy and passion...

YOU are definitely better than i deserve...

What a magical concert!!
I enjoyed a lot, and I'll never forget my first BH concert!!!
Thanks Mr.!!!!!!

PS. I had no camera at all, and I would like some pictures or videos (specially when Ben went down from the stage!!!!). Would be anybody so kind to contact me?? I ask one girl that night, but I was not able to find her :(
Thanks people!!

You can give me your contact ID on facebook and I'll add you. I think I'll upload the videos on my youtube account so that everyone can enjoy them :)
It was a great concert!

Tonight's had it all!!!
After a cool beginning with Tom Freund, we've had the pleasure to listen to two hours and a half of great music, and the honor to hear a brand new song written just in the morning and performed here for the very first time ever!!!
It's been an unbelievable night and an unforgettable show. This was my first BH concert, even if I know his music since the beginning, and it was just awesome...I hope you guys will record a live cd after you're done with all your shows for this year..it would be a perfect autumn/winter gift :) !!! Thanks again for all these emotions BHR7! I'll see you again as soon as I can

FINALLY yesterday I've seen my first Ben Harper concert... I've missed him too many times in the past.
It was simply AMAZING, this man sings and plays with his heart open wide, can't wait to see him live once again.
