See blues rock troubadour Ben Harper and his band The Innocent Criminals live in concert at The State! Known for combining an acoustic aesthetic, a groove-laden funk sensibility, and reggae-tinged soul, Harper has released 14 studio albums and three live albums since 1994, featuring songs such as "Steal My Kisses," "Another Lonely Day," and "Diamonds on the Inside." This extraordinary run, featuring contributions from the Innocent Criminals, established him as a singularly powerful songwriter and performer with range across multiple genres. Massive, international sold-out tours, Top 10 debuts in the U.S., Gold and Platinum certifications worldwide, and a slew of TV appearances have cemented Harper and the band’s status as genuine global stars.
