MORRISON, Colo. – Michael Franti has long understood and contributed to the healing nature of live music and the community it creates as both an artist and as a philanthropist. Following the recent announcement of his Good Day For A Good Day Weekend in Colorado, featuring three shows at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, restrictions in the state have been lifted to accommodate 66% capacity, allowing the iconic venue to increase capacity, prompting Michael Franti & Spearhead to establish a ticket gifting program ahead of their June 5 and 6 shows. The band is asking the community and fellow Soulrockers to nominate someone they feel should receive complimentary tickets for them and their friends/family to one-of-the-three shows this June by submitting their name and story behind the nomination (website here for more information and nomination entry).
“One thing we’ve really noticed over the course of this last year is how we’ve come together to help each other,” shares Franti. “Our first weekend back playing live music already means so much to us, and we know our Soulrocker family values giving back just as much as we do, so we want to partner with them to nominate a frontline/essential worker including healthcare heroes, first responders, their favorite teachers or coaches, or friends or family members who have had a tough road recently and could benefit from joining us all in such a serene setting. We want to gather, celebrate being on the other side of this all while giving thanks for all those who made difficult sacrifices, particularly this last year.” The band encourages all nominations, “I’ve always said ‘there’s no one you wouldn’t love if you knew their story. I believe that now more than ever and can’t wait to read yours.”
Nominations can be submitted at MichaelFranti.com or NominateForRedRocks.com. Nominations are now open through 11:59PM PST on May 25. Winners will be notified via e-mail by Friday, May 28 once tickets are allocated. As it is on a first-come-first-serve basis with a six-person capacity maximum, emails will confirm ticket allotment and directions on the 28th.
“We want to gift tickets across all three shows so families that have lost a loved one, or families who have lost their source of income due to the pandemic can have a night out where music heals and lifts them up, too, like they have us. Our goal is to spread hope, positivity, optimism, and to share the experience of live music after the challenges and heartache we’ve faced this last year … we can’t imagine a better way to start our tour than by paying it forward with our fellow Soulrockers,” Franti concludes.

About Michael Franti
Michael Franti is a globally recognized musician, humanitarian, activist, and award-winning filmmaker revered for his high-energy live shows, inspiring music, devotion to health and wellness, worldwide philanthropic efforts and the power of optimism. Throughout his multi-decade career, Franti has earned three Billboard No. 1s 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.
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 (where he and his family have resided since February 2020), a 32-room top-rated yoga retreat hotel located in Ubud, Bali.
