The 2017 Tour de Fat rolled into Tempe on October 7 with a beautiful day of performances, music, and beer. The one-day festival had plenty of sun but was still quite pleasant by Arizona late summer standards. There was plenty to do for the whole family during the early part of the afternoon.
But 2017 Tour de Fat Tempe really heated up when the sun went down and Michael Franti and Spearhead took the stage. Franti delivered a positive, upbeat and uplifting performance that was truly interactive with the audience – particularly his youngest fans. Franti brought fans up to the stage with him throughout the show to sing and dance, but placed special emphasis on included his youngest fans.
Special shout-out goes to the sign-language interpreter who was interpreting the Franti concert. It was fun watching how expressive and into the music she was as she interpreted the lyrcis and Franti’s banter with the crowd
