"I saw Ben for the first time at Bonnaroo a couple of years ago. He's a great singer and an amazing guitarist," Trey Anastasio says. "I'm really looking forward to being on the road with him this summer." Ben Harper continues, "For myself and the Innocent Criminals, we can't wait to be on the Zooma tour this summer. We've been looking forward to doing shows with Trey for a long time. I also look forward to seeing a lot of great music on the second stage."

The Zooma Tour will be a multi-faceted entertainment event featuring two performance stages and a complete activity village with vendors and attractions. Inspired by the Bonnaroo tradition, the Zooma Tour will extend the festival's spirit, presenting diverse lineups to open minded music fans in local communities. The Zooma Tour will also retain Bonnaroo's festive atmosphere and dynamic entertainment options, not to mention its superior standard for quality live music. "Bonnaroo will still be the ultimate highlight of the summer concert season," says Superfly's Rich Goodstone. "With the Zooma Tour, we're bringing an additional entertainment option to live music fans in their home regions. Each stop on the tour will be its own unique entertainment event."
