On the heels of their return to in-person shows earlier this month in Colorado, Michael Franti & Spearhead continue to thrill fans around the globe with the announcement of the Good Day For A Good Day World Tour, kicking off this summer in the U.S. through the end of 2021, followed by 13 European dates in early 2022. Tickets will go on sale this Friday, June 18 at 10am local time at MichaelFranti.com.
“After an emotional weekend playing our first shows back since the pandemic began, the wait is finally over! We are kicking off our Good Day For A Good Day World Tour this August with over 20 U.S. dates – some old, some moved – our Soulshine at Sea Cruise this November and 13 dates overseas in 2022,” shares Franti. “My heart is full. I’m energized and ready to hit the road again!”
In addition to the band’s traditional touring, Michael Franti & Spearhead will headline their own cruise in a new partnership with Sixthman, Soulshine at Sea, Nov. 3-7, 2021. After supporting over ten cruises in his career, Franti will embark on his first ever hosted cruise which will not only have an incredible and diverse musical lineup including Fitz and The Tantrums, Allen Stone, Niko Moon and more, but a heavy focus on health and wellness too.
“We are stoked to be announcing the lineup for Soulshine at Sea because we believe in the power of music; the connection of community; taking time to focus on health and wellness; and that in these challenging times, it’s important to have fun and rock out too,” shares Franti.
“We’ve put our creative caps on with our friends at Sixthman to curate an epic lineup bringing together a delicious blend of good vibes and music with some of the world’s most inspiring yoga, fitness and wellness teachers,” he continues. “This includes two Michael Franti & Spearhead shows and over 20 live band and DJ sets, along with over ten yoga and fitness classes, inspiring speakers and uniquely curated activities hosted by myself and special guests.”
The inaugural four-day voyage will set sail from Miami, Fla. to Great Stirrup Cay, Bahamas and will include exclusive performances, uniquely curated on-board activities hosted by Franti and other guests, daily yoga and HIIT classes, wellness coaching, live “Stay Human” podcast tapings and more. Guests will also have access to healthy menu options including vegan offerings around the clock, an on-board juice bar, cooking demos and more. With sustainability and the environment top of mind, Michael Franti will be working with partner, REVERB, to offset the carbon footprint while sailing. All guests who book before July 2, will have a special photo opportunity with Michael Franti onboard, and Michael’s SOULROCKER FAM is being invited to exclusive on-board gatherings as well. 
Double occupancy staterooms on Soulshine at Sea begin at $850 per person (subject to availability), plus taxes and fees, with low deposit amounts and flexible payment plans available. For more information about booking your vacation, visit 
soulshineatsea.com or call Sixthman directly at 833-935-3094 between the hours of 10 a.m. ET and 6 p.m. ET.
Known for addressing social issues that impact the world through positivity and optimism, Franti released his latest song “You Will Always Hear My Echo” on June 4, Gun Violence Awareness Day, confronting the issue that continues to sweep across the U.S. and claim the lives of over 100 people a day, resulting in nearly 40,000 deaths from gun violence annually. The track is available on all streaming platforms 
HERE and the video is available HERE.
“The song and video for ‘You Will Always Hear My Echo’ were put together as a response to what seems like a rise in the climate of hate and violence that we see taking place in the U.S. today,” Franti shared in an 
op-ed with SPIN. “I wanted to make the point that because gun violence leaves no community untouched, that it is up to every single one of us, gun owner or not, to do whatever we can to reduce the number of gun fatalities we see each year and lessen the number of families forced to spend the rest of their lives with the pain of losing a loved one. 
“Let us listen to the echoes of those who have been lost, as heard through the voices of their family members, and work together to make sure fewer and fewer families each year become part of the club of survivors that none of them ever wanted to join,” Franti concluded.
Franti continues to empower fans to take action in their own communities with resources available at 
MichaelFranti.com/Activism. The new portion of the website also provides resources to take action against climate change and join the REVERB Music Climate Revolution alongside Franti, with a mission to unite around music and tackle environmental and social issues we face while empowering millions of individuals to take action toward a better future for people and the planet.
Michael Franti & Spearhead released their 11th studio album Work Hard And Be Nice nearly one year ago, which included lead single “I Got You,” the band’s first Billboard No. 1 in nearly 10 years, and was also featured on NPR’s 
mid-year and end-year “Heavy Rotation: Public Radio’s Most Popular Songs of 2020,” sharing, “Michael Franti’s infectious groove is unmistakable. From the opening chords to the percolating rhythm, it’s easy to get caught up in the positivity he exudes.”

Throughout his multi-decade career, Franti has earned three Billboard No. 1’s with triumphantly hopeful hits “Sound of Sunshine,” “Say Hey (I Love You)” and “I Got You,” as well as six Top 30 Hot AC singles, nine Top 25 AAA Singles and three Billboard Top 5 Rock Albums. “I Got You,” lead single from his latest album Work Hard And Be Nice, marked Franti’s first No. 1 in nearly 10 years and landed on NPR’s “Most Popular Songs of 2020,” while the music video boasts over 1 million views since its release. Michael Franti & Spearhead recorded the 17-song album in studios in Nashville, Los Angeles and San Francisco working with A-list writers and producers on what has been called their most diverse record yet.
Michael Franti & Spearhead have announced their Good Day For A Good Day World Tour, kicking off this summer in the U.S. through the end of 2021, including the five-day Soulshine at Sea cruise Nov. 3-7 sailing from Miami, Fla. to Stirrup Cay, Bahamas, followed by 13 European dates in early 2022. Tickets will go on sale June 18 at 10 a.m. local time at 
In January 2019, Franti released his self-directed documentary Stay Human, which won an array of awards at film festivals worldwide and influenced his writing for his album Stay Human Vol. II (Thirty Tigers), which debuted at No. 1 on both the Americana and Independent Album charts and received critical acclaim from USA TodayBillboard, Associated Press and Paste. Influenced by the film, Franti’s Stay Human podcast presented by Gibson on the American Songwriter Podcast Network features creatives from all walks of life, with new episodes available each week.
Deemed a “groundbreaking musician” by Entrepreneur, Franti launched a virtual event revolution in June 2020 with his Stay At Home Concert World Tour, a creation prompted by his first summer in 33 years in which he wasn’t on the road due to the global pandemic, performing for over 50,000 fans worldwide with seven uniquely themed virtual livestreams. In order to better connect with his Soulrocker community, Franti developed a dual-screen model, allowing fans to join a “Backstage Zoom Party Room” and interact directly with one another.
Michael Franti & Spearhead continue to foster their community both on and off stage with a wish granting non-profit, Do It For The Love, founded by Franti and his wife, Sara. Do It For The Love brings those with life threatening illnesses, veterans, and children with severe challenges to concerts worldwide, fulfilling over 3,300 wishes and touching the lives of over 12,000 people to date. Franti also owns SOULSHINE Bali, a 32-room top-rated yoga retreat hotel located in Ubud, Bali.
