An Acoustic Evening with Ben Harper.
What can I say, what an amazing concert, it felt like being at the Live From Mars albums, truly blessed to be the presence of such a great musician. Great covers and adlibbing with "In the dock of the bay". Looking forward to the next one.
I WITNESSED this amazing show, second time seeing Ben Harper ,first time was when he & relentless 7 opened for Pearl Jam over here in New Zealand and that was bloody sweet too. Ben was a BEAST !! he played for over 3 hours it was unbelievable,the venue which was ASB Theatre was perfect for the acoustic set.He jammed all of his selection of guitars and piano and some other crazy electric xylophone looking thing =). The amount of talent he has is truely intense.I wish i wrote the setlist down in my phone so i could put it on here to share but i didnt >= ( he played such a variety of his ever expanding material. he even unexpectedly got asked from a person in the audience " whats your favourite old school song? " for which Ben answered ".......... id probably say something like sitting on the dock of the bay" the crowd loved that. Ben then asked the sound crew behind the stage to print some lyrics.Two songs later and he played it for us,his first time doing so to a audience. I feel honoured to have witnessed a performance with such range and undeniable talent. Cheers for coming back to your "home" Ben your a legend. il see you next time.
