Another simply unbelievably amazing Ben Harper show! Thank you for bringing your acoustic show to Colorado, and for sharing your story of when you went to Virgin Records 20 years ago. I could not of laid out a better set list of songs I wanted to hear. When did you learn how to play the piano so well too?!?! You gave my wife and I a night to remember. Cannot wait to see you again!

Been a fan since 1997 and my first show was the Horde Festival in Pittsburgh with my brother. We have been life long fans ever since. We saw the acoustic set from practically sitting in Ben's lap and this show had the same amount of intimacy even though I was in one of the higher levels. I don't know what else to really say, he has always spoken to my heart and when he thanked everyone for being there for all these years I really felt so happy that I could be included in that group. I've played countless BH songs for my family and he has been a part of my life for so long I was just so happy to see that show and reconnect and realize that. (Been to 12 shows in the mean time but this one really hit home). Could anyone really ask for more? 27 songs! It was magical and I just want to thank Ben again for being just the most wonderful, humble, creative, and insightful person I could ever hope to "get to know" over these years. I can't thank you enough, Mr. Harper (and I'm a Mr. Too). You are an inspiration.

The Ben we fell in love with in the 90's is back. Humble, soft, loving. After that awful relentless 7 phase, this show reestablished him as the best musician of our generation.

What an amazing show. Of the hundreds and hundreds of concerts I have seen over the years this is definitely one for the record books. Very few shows have ever given me goosebumps, but this was one of them. I felt as though I was attending a VH1 live storyteller show:) Thanks to my wife I couldn't have asked for a better college graduation gift than this.

"As long as the songs are strong, I think you can express yourself in any style and have it be soulful and have it be your own voice" -Ben Harper

It is hard to beat Ben when he plays red rocks, but last nights show came close. I did not want the music to end.

Ben show #9, and definitely the best one yet. Ben, solo, doing the songs that i know and love in an absolutely beautiful location. The reason i picked up a guitar 13 years ago was to learn most of the songs played last night. Forever, Amen Omen, Waiting On An Angel, Excuse Me Mr., Walk Away, Fight Outta You, Suzy Blue, Lifeline, the list goes on, then, as an almost incomparable cherry on top of the Mana split Ben served us, HE PLAYS HALLELUJAH?! For those that were there and have been fans for the past decade and beyond, could you have asked for a better show?! For those that missed it, (which are more than were there, that venue was gorgeous and small, AND I know how hard tickets were to snatch up) I wish I could take you all out for coffee, grab you by the face, and express, in the most passionate way, how masterfully Ben filled the Ellie Caulkins on that chilly November in Denver. Here's one fan, saying, I hope how Ben finished Roses From My Friends last night had no prophetic message, we'd all be missing a piece of ourselves if, indeed, this may be the last time we see him. On behalf of all in attendance, I believe, of this moment, we will make the most. Thanks again, Ben.

One final thing, to Ben. My son Harper, born 3 months premature, who my wife and I had the pleasure of telling you about in Aspen, August 2007, after the fence fell down; is five now, and his will to live continues to grow. He's the best reader in 1st grade!

I tried for 40 minutes to get tickets...then found them on StubHub. Pretty sad. Waited a couple of years to see Ben come back to Denver, hope all of the StubHub purchasers enjoy the show

Rockin_Gramps's picture

scored 2 tickets in the orchestra 10th row - nothing popped up as available until about my 4th try, kept saying nothing available in all sections.

Now appears you can't even try for P-1 or P2. The P-3 drop down is still showing.

Try this one Thursday if you strike out here..

Was able to get 2 Orchestra tickets in row J on Friday after missing out on the pre-sale. Ben Harper all acoustic show is going to be amazing! We cannot wait!

Still having problems getting tickets, its saying they arent available....is it sold out? HELP!!!?

maddmatt's picture

This is bunch of BS. Tickets already posted on Stubhub. Very discouraging. Not sure I'm going to support artists by attending their shows ever again. Sell your tickets from your website like Louis CK and screw Ticketmaster

drmarkijohn's picture

Yep same thing...I was on at 10:01 and first the link did not work. I get right back on and see the message of no tickets left. I guess try again at the KBCO presale Thursday.

Mama_Michelle's picture

What?? No tickets at 10:00 am??? All 3 price levels no tickets, anyone else have this issue?

geoffc's picture

Try again now! I had the same problem and just kept trying and about 15 minutes or so after 10 I finally got tickets.
