Michael Franti & Spearhead, Prince Bandroom – Melbourne, 2nd April 2015
It has been a few years since Franti’s last visit to Australia and the decision to bring the band into more intimate rooms is an exciting one for the fans and the band alike. Musician, humanitarian and author, Michael Franti, is recognised as a pioneering force using music as a vehicle for positive change as well as the unforgettable, high energy shows with his band, Spearhead.
All People, Spearhead’s eighth studio album (excluding variations) was released on CD in Australia in August 2013 (through EMI Music), perfect timing ahead of their tour here and coinciding with the digital release, due early 2014. The band will showcase songs from this new record, including brand new single ‘I’m Alive (Life Sounds Like)’, as well as their classic hits with tracks from chart breaking 2010 release “The Sound Of Sunshine”, and the multi-platinum song “Say Hey (I Love You)”.
