TWO EXCLUSIVE VOICE AND GUITAR SHOWS

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THE WONDERFUL SETTING OF THE VITTORIALE AMPHITHEATRE IN GARDONE RIVIERA

THURSDAY 10 AND FRIDAY 11 AUGUST 2017

 

Ben Harper and his six-string for the first time will enchant the audience in the magnificent Vittoriale Amphitheatre in Gardone Riviera (BS)the historic residence of Gabriele D'Annunzio, on the occasion of the seventh edition of the Tener-a-mente Festivalwhich hosts the most important artists on the world music scene every summer. Two unique dates, two different shows, given the habit of the same Harper not to repeat: do not make any more commitments for Thursday 10 and Friday 11 August 2017! Pre-sales for both concerts will open on the official Ticketone circuit (online and points of sale) from from 10 a.m. on Wednesday 22 March. Be wary of unofficial sales channels!

Starting with his debut album in 1994, Welcome To The Cruel World (Virgin Records), Harper has released 14 studio albums in a 23-year career, both as a solo artist and with the Innocent Criminals and other projects. This long series of work has allowed Ben to establish himself as an extraordinarily prolific singer-songwriter, as well as a performer capable of spanning multiple genres: blues, folk, soul, reggae, rock meet his unique ability to mix personal lyrics with political themes.

His fan base grows day by day, and critics love him too: Rolling Stone hailed his pieces as 'jewels of unique and exquisitely tender rock & roll', Entertainment Weekly praised its depth and Billboard wrote that 'his music reminds us of the beauty and power of simplicity'. Sold out tours worldwide, debuts in the US Top 10, gold and platinum certifications and a pile of Grammy Awards: this is Ben Harper.

Ben Harper is only the latest of the artists confirmed by Barley Arts Promotion in the beautiful setting of theVittoriale Amphitheatrewhich during the summer will host the British Elbow (15 July) and Niccolò Fabi with the 20th anniversary tour Becoming Inventors 1997-2017 (22 July). The collaboration between the Vittoriale e Barley Arts is well established: over the years Counting Crows, Paul Weller, Steve Vai, John Butler Trio, Gov't Mule, Rufus Wainwright, Jackson Browne & David Lindley took turns on stage in Gardone, and the surprises of summer 2017 do not end there...
