Michael Franti & Spearhead Cancels Christchurch Show

Michael Franti & Spearhead have had to cancel their Christchurch concert due to "unresolved production issues".

Michael and Bluesfest Touring are committed to presenting Michael’s show at the professional level his fans rightly expect, and will plan to return at a later date in the near future.

In a statement, Franti has this to say to Christchurch fans: "I am so disappointed and apologize to all our fans there who were looking forward to a great night as much as I have been. We look forward to returning as soon aspossible. Everyone involved worked hard to make it happen. We will still be playing in Wellington and Auckland so if you feel like following awild impulse and flying up, we’d love to see you there!”

For a full refund for the Christchurch show, please return to your point of purchase.

Support acts for the Wellington and Auckland shows have been announced. Soulful singer-songwriter Louis Baker will open in Wellington, while former Opensouls singer Tyra Hammond will open in Auckland.
