Michael Franti Announces Tour Dates

Michael Franti and his band Spearhead have announced dates for their North American tour in support of his forthcoming album release All People. “We are super excited to get back on the road this summer and fall,” said Franti. “Our new album All People is officially in the can and we are stoked to get out there and play all the new songs for you. Be ready for some surprises and ready to rock out. See ya in the parking lot, see ya on the street, see ya on stage!!!”

All People, to be released on July 30th, is the follow-up to 2010’s The Sound Of Sunshine, which was the highest Billboard Top 200 Album Chart debut of Franti’s career.
