Wednesday 28th March now onsale. Thursday 29th March SOLD OUT. Doors Open: 6:00 PM / Show Time: 7:00 PM. Venerated troubadour Michael Franti and his band Spearhead are back at the Tanks for another highly anticipated thought-provoking and triumphantly uplifting performance. In creating their ninth studio album SOULROCKER, Michael Franti & Spearhead introduced a new sensibility to their potent hybrid of hip-hop, rock, folk and reggae: a gracefully arranged take on electronic music that more than fulfills the band’s mission of making impassioned music you can dance to. Franti believes in music as a vehicle for positive change and giving back has always been at the heart of Franti’s mission. He has dedicated his life to spreading the joy of music and positivity to millions of people. In 2013 Michael and his wife Sara founded Do It For The Love Foundation to grant live concert music wishes to people living with life-threatening illnesses, children with severe challenges and wounded veterans throughout North America. Franti believes that in granting live concert music wishes, he is helping those in need to feel supported, loved, happy and hopeful.

The music was inspiring, the venue inviting and the crowd invigorating. All my hopes were realized when I was invited to get up on the riser to sing and dance with Michael.

Awesome show. But I expected no less from Franti. Great opening acts from Victoria Canal and Justin Thomas. My yearly fix has been fulfilled.

Always, always puts on a great show. Michael Is an amazing person and has such a great big heart. I love that he does a preshow yoga class before most of his shows. I wish more performers were like him-using this platform to spread messages and love and peace.
