Ben Harper is turning things down a notch for his two upcoming New Zealand shows.
The rootsy rocker is going unplugged for his An Evening With Ben Harper shows, being held at Wellington's Michael Fowler Centre on November 3 and Auckland's ASB Theatre on November 5.
In a move used successfully by Soundgarden's Chris Cornell late last year, Harper will perform songs from his extensive back catalogue of 10 studio albums during his solo shows, which run for two hours.
Harper, a regular New Zealand visitor, was last year as a support act for Pearl Jam in November, 2009.
Tickets for the shows go on sale on July 11 through Ticketek and The-Edge. Pre-sales begin on July 6 through Live Nation.
November 3: Michael Fowler Centre, Wellington
November 5: ASB Theatre, Auckland
