Ben Harper Announces First-Ever Acoustic Tour
Ben Harper will kick off his first acoustic headlining tour on at Vienna, VA’s Filene Center at Wolf Trap on September 4. Though Harper has performed some acoustic sets over the years, most notably at the first Bonnaroo, the singer/guitarist has never headlined a full acoustic tour. The run will also include Harper’s first headlining show at New York’s Carnegie Hall on October 10. Harper plans to include songs from throughout his career each night. Pre-sale tickets will be available beginning tomorrow, March 20, at 10:00 AM ET. Tickets will go on sale to the general public this Friday, March 23.
