Tracing their roots back to 1993, the Innocent Criminals (featuring percussionist Leon Mobley, bassist Juan Nelson, drummer Oliver Charles, keyboardist Jason Yates and guitarist Michael Ward) were involved in many Ben Harper projects before going on hiatus in 2008.

New Zealand singer/songwriter Miller Yule has been confirmed as special guest.

Miller, an accomplished multi-instrumentalist and performer who recently released his debut five track EP Shoot Me In The Heart debuting at #4 on the New Zealand album chart, will perform with his five-piece band on the New Zealand concert dates this summer.
