With sustainability and the environment top of mind, in 2021 Franti announced a pledge to join
partner REVERB’s Music Climate Revolution, to offset the carbon footprint of all their tours
moving forward. This began on the road in Colorado with Franti & Spearhead’s Good Day For A
Good Day Weekend from June 4-6th, including one show in Vail, CO followed by three shows at
Red Rocks Amphitheater. To keep the good times rolling, Spearhead’s Good Day For A Good
