Wed, 21 Mar 2012 11:27:50
Ben Harper is still doing new things nearly 20 years into his thrilling career. The singer will kick off his first-ever acoustic headlining tour on September 4 at the Filene Center at Wolf Trap in Vienna, VA. The run will include a concert at New York City's Carnegie Hall on October 10, marking the Grammy-winning artist's first performance at this legendary venue.
Ever since his acclaimed acoustic performance at the inaugural Bonnaroo Music Festival in 2002, Harper has been besieged by fan requests for this kind of intimate outing. Now he is obliging fans. He will be performing songs from throughout his career, from his 1994 debut, Welcome to the Cruel World, to his latest album, Give Till It's Gone.
Tickets will go on sale to the general public this Friday, March 23.
