WILMINGTON — Michael Franti and Spearhead brought back the positive vibes to Greenfield Lake Amphitheater last weekend, performing two nights on Saturday and Sunday.

Tom Dorgan of MoonFrog Media captured shots of the Saturday concert, which included opening act Fortunate Youth.

Both nights were sold out, with Franti often engaging the crowd on the main stage and meandering through the audience to perform at two satellite stages set up during the show.

“He stopped at each mini-stage, pulling fans up to sing with him,” Dorgan said. “A young girl was among them who also picked up a guitar to play and sing with them.”

Franti’s wife and son were at the show as well, with his wife performing with the band on a couple of tunes.

Below is the setlist for Saturday, as well as scenes from the show.
