Ben Harper and The Innocent Criminals will return to New Zealand early next year for a five-date tour.

A three-time Grammy Award winner and seven-time nominee, Harper is without question one of the most celebrated singer-songwriters of our generation.
The Californian-born artist has traversed a myriad of musical landscapes in the three decades that he’s been making music, from blues, rock and reggae; to soul, funk and folk.
He’s released 14 studio albums, including Burn to Shine (1999); Diamonds On the Inside (2003); There Will Be Light (2004); Childhood Home (2014); and most recently in 2018, No Mercy In This Land with blues legend Charlie Musselwhite.
Harper’s trusty band The Innocent Criminals have been with him for much of the journey. Tracing their roots back to 1993, The Innocent Criminals (percussionist Leon Mobley, bassist Juan Nelson and drummer Oliver Charles) have been involved in most of Harper’s projects. The band has toured the globe nonstop, earning legions of fans thanks to explosive live performances.
