Michael Franti and Spearhead performed at Red Rocks Ampitheatre in Morrison, CO, this past weekend on June 7 with Snarky Puppy and Victoria Canal.
Why the color orange? Orange is the color that Hadiya Pendleton’s friends wore in her honor when she was shot and killed in Chicago at the age of 15 — just one week after performing at President Obama’s second inaugural parade in 2013. After her death, Hadiya’s friends asked people to stand up, speak out, and wear orange to raise awareness about gun violence.
