BEN HARPER & THE INNOCENT CRIMINALS
Special guest Miller Yule confirmed
Thursday, October 20, 2016 – Live Nation is pleased to confirm promising New Zealand singer/songwriter Miller Yule as special guest on the Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals Call It What It Is Tour of New Zealand this December.
Miller, an accomplished multi-instrumentalist and performer who recently released his debut 5 track EP ‘Shoot Me In The Heart’ debuting at #4 on the New Zealand album chart, will perform with his 5 piece band on the Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminal concert dates this summer.
Earlier this year, Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals released Call It What It Is, the band’s first new album in eight years. New Zealand audiences will be among the first to hear new songs from the album, along with classics such as ‘Burn To Shine’, ‘Steal My Kisses’ and ‘Diamonds In The Inside’.
Tracing their roots back to 1993, the Innocent Criminals (percussionist Leon Mobley, bassist Juan Nelson, drummer Oliver Charles, keyboardist Jason Yates and guitarist Michael Ward) were involved in many Ben Harper projects before going on hiatus in 2008. The band toured nonstop, earning legions of fans thanks to explosive live performances and a succession of acclaimed studio albums including Fight For Your Mind, The Will to Live, Burn to Shine, Diamonds on the Inside and the GRAMMY® nominated Lifeline, their last studio album together in 2007. The Innocent Criminals also backed Ben and The Blind Boys of Alabama on the two-time GRAMMY® winning collaborative album There Will Be A Light in 2004.
