Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals Cancel Upcoming Australian Tour, Announce New Dates

Ben Harper and his band The Innocent Criminals have postponed their Australian and New Zealand tour, which had previously been scheduled for March. In a statement to fans, the group advised that the previously announced dates would be rescheduled to the end of the year.

“To our great fans in Australia and New Zealand,” they said, “Unfortunately we need to postpone our upcoming tour so that we can put the finishing touches on our new album. We can’t wait to see you in November/December.”

All previously purchased tickets to the band’s shows will remain valid for the rescheduled ones, except in the case of Adelaide, where punters will be “contacted directly about the exchange”.

Meanwhile, those who are unable to attend the rescheduled dates can also get their hands on a refund from their point of purchase, while new tickets to all shows are on sale now.

Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals’ first headlining national tour since 2007 comes in celebration of their brand new album, Call It What It Is, which had previously been flagged for an April release.

The band have yet to indicate whether the rescheduled tour dates also mean that the album release will also be pushed back.

Check out their full list of rescheduled Australian headlining tour dates, below.
