Michael Franti & Spearhead have earned a third No. 1 at radio with “I Got You,” which tops the Billboard Adult Alternative chart, and marks the group’s first No. 1 since 2010’s “The Sound of Sunshine,” as well as their ninth Top 25 single in the format.

“‘I Got You’ is all about how we support each other and learn to ‘love deeper and fly higher’ through all of life’s highs and lows, like the times we are living in right now,” shares Franti. “So, thank you everyone who has requested the song and all the stations who gave it a chance! And thanks for all of the uplifting music you play by all the artists out there. The world needs inspiring music more than ever!”

Last month, Franti announced three more dates for his Stay At Home Concert World Tour after performing from Soulshine Bali over the summer. Franti has connected with his Soulrocker collective with his Work Hard And Be Nice Record Release Show June 19, Live from Soulshine Bali July 18 and Soulrocker House Party Aug. 15, with groups of fans, friends and entire households joining together for an estimated audience of 10,000 per show.

“We had originally planned to only do three shows with the mindset that touring might be an option by now, but obviously it’s not,” Franti elaborates. “But because you stuck with us, we are sticking with you and adding three more livestream shows in 2020!”

The Stay At Home Concert World Tour fosters a sense of community via a dual-screen livestream model, with ticket buyers watching the performance on one screen while interacting directly with Franti and other fans in a Zoom “Backstage” party room, available to the first 500 fans to purchase tickets, where they can be included in the main feed, dancing and singing along during his nearly three-hour shows.

“It’s been amazing to see how our community has come together during this time when most of us are required to be physically distant,” Franti says. “These shows have proven that just because we are physically distant doesn’t mean that we have to be socially, spiritually or musically distant.”

Each show offers a different experience with themes: Show Me Your Peace Sign Sept. 19, Soulrocker Halloween Scream Oct. 30 and 2020 Harvest Ball Celebration Nov. 21. When purchasing tickets, fans can choose to attend an individual show for $22 or purchase a bundle for all three shows for $60. Attendees can also add on brand new merchandise for an additional price. A portion of each ticket will be going to charity as well. Tickets for Sept. 19, Oct. 30 and Nov. 21 at 6 p.m. PT / 9 p.m. ET are available for purchase HERE.
