Michael Franti and Friends - Melbourne April 2009
TOUR DATES & TICKETING arrow
Following on from 2008’s sold out performances, Michael Franti will return to Melbourne in April for a series of intimate performances. Stepping out of the usual Franti format, these shows will see Michael Franti perform in a unique acoustic environment, alongside some very special friends.
A Californian-born poet, musician and composer, Franti blends hip hop, funk and reggae together with his outspoken political and progressive lyrics and has gone on to become renowned as not only a worldwide million-selling recording artist, but also a leader in the peace and social justice movement.
Franti returns off the back of his critically acclaimed release All Rebel Rockers (out now through Liberator). All Rebel Rockers deviates from the past Franti sound, instead comprising a hybrid dub-infused soul flavour with some hard-hitting dub rock production.
Franti’s last Australian tour drew rave reviews, and as he returns in 2009 in acoustic mode with friends, these shows are not to be missed.
Tickets on sale Tuesday 10 March.
