Michael Franti Announce "Love Out Loud Yoga" Event at Red Rocks

Expanding on Michael Franti's socially and environmentally conscious lifestyle, the singer, songwriter and guitarist has partnered with dynamic yoga teacher Gina Caputo for "LOVE OUT LOUD YOGA." It's a special yoga and live acoustic music jam--set for Thursday, July 13 prior to MICHAEL FRANTI & SPEARHEAD's headlining concert at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO with other artists Trevor Hall and HIRIE--benefiting "Do It For The Love." Co-founded by Franti and his wife Sara, the organization is a wish-granting non-profit that brings people living with life-threatening illnesses, children with severe challenges, and wounded veterans to live concerts.

Tickets for the special event billed as an invitation to Wear Your Heart On Your Sleeve will go on sale Thursday, May 4 at 11:00am MDT exclusively to MICHAEL FRANTI fan club members prior to the general on sale Tuesday, May 9 at 10:00am MDT. Doors for "LOVE OUT LOUD YOGA" will open at 4:00pm MDT with a sharp start time of 4:30pm MDT for an hour of guided yoga and music.

"All of us who have felt the healing power of music know how it lifts our spirits when we are facing life's hurdles," says FRANTI. "Now more than ever we need to come together in celebration of this fact.  'Love Out Loud Yoga' will be a fun and spirited celebration of the power of community coming together to make a difference in the lives of others during times when they need music the most. It's gonna rock!"

Do It For The Love's mission is to bring people with advanced stages of life threatening illness, children and adults with special needs and wounded veterans to see any live concert by any artist in North America. Throughout history, the expression "wear your heart on your sleeve" has been a way for people to dedicate certain actions to the ones they love, as well as a way to describe people who display their emotions truthfully.  We invite all participants to attach a heart to their sleeve or wear heart inspired clothing, body art, make-up, costumes in their own unique expression of love for someone in their lives who needs some extra support and in solidarity with all of our "Do It For The Love" families.

Onstage is where MICHAEL FRANTI & SPEARHEAD truly take flight;they embracethe power of music knowing how it can inspire, uplift, and make people want to dance or cry. For the aptly titled "Love Out Loud" world tour, which kicked off March 2 in Alaska with performances set for Japan this month,the group recently unveiled a new leg of summer concerts in North America in addition to their already announced shows, with stops now in New York, NY and Austin, TX among many others.
