He's baaack. Or, at least, he will be. Michael Franti returns to Bend with Spearhead on August 23 at the Les Schwab Ampitheater. Tickets go on sale Wednesday, April 1 for $39 plus service fees.

According to LSA:
Musician, filmmaker, humanitarian, Michael Franti, is recognized as a pioneering force using music as a vehicle for positive change as well as his unforgettable, high energy shows with his band, Spearhead. With the multi-platinum success of his song "Say Hey (I Love You)" and the chart breaking 2010 release of The Sound Of Sunshine, Franti and his band guarantee a show that will be thought provoking as well as energetic.
"Music is sunshine,” says Franti, one of the most positive and conscious artists in music today. “Music gives us new energy and a stronger sense of purpose.” Franti has a brand new single, "Life is Better with You" which is on his latest album, All People. Most recently, Rolling Stone premiered a captivating video of Franti’s song, “Same As It Ever Was,” which he wrote in response to the struggle for modern day civil rights.
