Michael Franti & Spearhead's Stay Human tour, a celebration of the activist musician's new album, Stay Human 2, begins and ends in Colorado.

The tour launches at Red Rocks Amphitheatre on June 1, with support from Xavier Rudd and Victoria Canal, and wraps up at Jazz Aspen Snowmass in Aspen on August 31.

The album launch coincides with the release of Franti's new documentary, also dubbed Stay Human.

“I’ve traveled the globe making music, and throughout the years I’ve always hoped that it could inspire small steps towards making the world a better place," Franti said in a statement describing the film. "Struggling with the challenges of the world, I began filming my new documentary, Stay Human, telling the stories of heroic everyday people who helped me to discover more deeply what it means to be and stay human.”

The Red Rocks show takes place at 7 p.m. Friday, June 1. Tickets run $46 to $75 and are available online at AXS.
