      House of Blues - Boston, US on 06 Jun 2015

      Michael Franti is just absolutely wonderful. What a fantastic show. The Madison Theater was packed with happy people. The most fun I've had at a concert in years... A purely positive, high energy, blast. And him, we need more like him... A Truly genuine, kind soul. Looking forward to his next show in KY so we can bring the kids.

      Incredibly positive energy and enthusiasm from Michael Franti and Spearhead, as always. I appreciate Michael's genuine love of people and music and his dedication to spreading peace, love and optimism through his music, lyrics and connecting with the audience. There is no place I would have rather spent my birthday!

      Fillmore Silver Spring - Silver Spring, US on 04 Jun 2015

      This was only my second time seeing Franti and I was just as impressed as the first time!! My first time was on the Rockboat!! He puts on an amazing concert!! I was very disappointed in a lot of the fans that were there though!! I brought a friend with me who loves all kinds of music! I told her how awesome it would be nothing but happy people because that's the kind of music he sings!! I thought everybody would be like us!! Boy was I wrong, within 5 minutes of arriving encountered our first of many rude people,Then right before he came on encountered our second nasty person which lasted about an hour before the security guard stepped in!! Of course I would pay to see him again if possible! Hopefully next time it will be held at different venue!! I will be seeing him on my second Rockboat!! TRBXVI he is the main reason I chose to go again!! Thanks for an awesome concert!!!

      The Tivoli - Fortitude Valley, Australia on 10 Apr 2015

      Amazing concert. Musicianship was great, the barriers between band and audience were non-existent. There is something wonderful about a singer walking around the audience giving hugs while singing. Spearhead and Franti never disappoint.

      Canyon Club - Agoura Hills, US on 19 Nov 2014

      I have to admit that I was unfamiliar with Michael's music. After seeing him last night at the Canyon Club in Agoura, I want to shout out to the world what a wonderful, compassionate, loving person he is as well as all of his band members and his talented son. His stories were so deep and personal, even his brother (who I sat next too) was in tears. He engaged with everyone in the audience and brining the whole party on stage and then dancing about and around the crowd. Then he asked everyone to stay after for a dance party. The energy in the room was magical. Please put me on your mailing list so I can share my experience with my friends too.

      WOW Hall - Eugene, US on 13 Nov 2014

      Eugene LOVES Sea Shepherd, and so does Michael Franti and Spearhead !! We had a wonderful night... met lots of supporters and gained new supporters, saw old friends and met new friends, raised awareness, and sold lots of Sea Shepherd gear. As usual, Michael put on an AMAZING show and spread lots of love, as well as major interaction from the crowd.

      For this tour, he has a backdrop on stage with thousands of cloth swatches stapled to it that fans have written messages of peace, love and hope on. As the tour goes on, it grows. Sea Shepherd Eugene now has a swatch on that wall so our message will travel with him!

      If you've never seen Michael Franti before, I highly recommend it, you WILL love him! Personally (John), I have seen about 421 concerts (not including fairs, bars, etc.), and if I exclude the Grateful Dead family, he literally puts on the best shows I've ever seen... ALWAYS good fun, music and fans. And Sea Shepherd Eugene's own Jasmine Tribolet got to dance on stage with him for the 9th time! She's known Michael since she was 7, playing his guitar once, and singing with him a few times, including a duet once on her birthday.

      When the show was over, the party kept on going until midnight with guitarist J Bowman as DJ pumping out club music as the group of fans that danced with Michael during the final encore made the stage their own little dance club. Jasmine was the last person dancing for the final 20 minutes, with about 1/4 of the crowd still in the audience dancing and cheering her on!

      After the club mix was over, Michael came out to the lobby near our table to personally say hello to his fans, sign autographs and have pictures taken with him until 1am, even though they have a long ride to Vancouver, Canada when they were done. He truly appreciates each and every person he meets.

      And because his fans are such kind, loving people, the ones who already know Sea Shepherd sincerely loved the fact the Sea Shepherd Eugene was there, they love what we do, and were happy that we have a chapter here now. The folks that didn't know us, certainly do now, and were VERY warm and receptive... not one negative word, nothing but love and support for what Sea Shepherd does.

      And a huge shout out to the staff at the historic McDonald Theater (Not WOW Hall), and Kesey Enterprises for all of their kind words, help and support... I always love shows in that venue and we hope to come back real soon! #ShepherdOn #SeaShepherdEugene

      Crossroads - Kansas City, US on 08 Jul 2014

      The positive energy and music were off the charts!! I was also able to attend the yoga event before the concert and it was the most fun I've had at a yoga session to date. ALL of the acts were amazing, Bobby Lee from SOJA I-N-C-R-E-D-I-B-L-E!, but Michael Franti brought it all together with so much harmony and love, joining the audience, the audience joining him, outstanding!!
