This was my first BH show. I am a huge fan, but this was my first opportunity to see him live. Grace was beautiful and talented and a true pleasure to see perform. The Tab was an awesome venue and I am completely grateful to have had this experience. The way BH connects with his fans and the way the fans connect with each other is something that words cannot describe. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! I am blessed to be a witness

Grace was adorable and I loved her energy. Ben, as always, rocked it and it's clear that he loves his fans. I've seen him love countless times and its always worth it.

I am almost speechless after this show...Ben Harper played over 3 hours! What a treat for any BH fan! I am SO grateful to have been a part of this experience. He is the most gracious, talented artist and the gratitude he shows to his live fans is just unparalleled. WE FEEL IT TOO, BEN!! All I can say is THANK YOU to Ben and everyone working on and off the stage with him that night. I feel love and light...what a blessing to be the person that can bring that to anyone willing to listen. THANK YOU, I will never forget this show!!

I went to the 2005 Tabernacle show - one of the most amazing nights of my life. Add this to the list!

Thank you God for creating Ben Harper....... and for Joseph Kekuku who allegedly invented the Lap Steel Guitar.

Another great show! After ten years and over a dozen shows, Im still blown away every time I see Ben. The energy was awesome at the Tabernacle; so much better than in Alpharetta in 2009. Im glad that Ben has the patience to still play his acoustic set in a venue that can be so loud. That was definitely a highlight seeing a bunch of songs from Welcome to the Cruel World. I also love the fact that they can close every show with a new song and have the crowd interacting so well. I guess the internet has allowed us to see these songs before they show up in our town. I noticed as the band was saying their goodbyes on stage that the guitar tech had a lap slide in his hands as if Ben might play one more. I guess he decided that three hours was enough. Did anyone else notice that? In my younger days I would have waited by the bus to chat with Ben and the band. Did anyone happen to stay after this one? Does Ben do this anymore? Can't wait until next time!

Unbelievable show. Best show money can buy. This was my fifth show and it was still as amazing as the first one I ever saw. Can't wait until next year. Thank you for coming back to Atlanta and proving, yet again, why you're worth every single bit of the price of admission.

Incredible show @ the best indoor venue in the world!

Saw Ben open for Pearl Jam on 10/4/1996 in Charlotte, NC.
Jeremy riff in Glory & Consequence was a cool shout out to PJ20.

Under Pressure cover was amazing. Check out the version with Vedder.

Two memorable quotes from the night:

"The world is my country, all man and women are my brothers and sisters, and to do good is my religion." -Thomas Paine

"It's not a matter of whether love worked or did not work, but that you loved" -Ben Harper (Before MASTERPIECE)
