Ben Folds announces US tour

on September 15, 2010, 11:30am

Somewhere in our collective subconscious, there are murmurs and echos of a Ben Folds concert. Whether it’s “I saw him with his real band back in the ’90s” or “I went with my ex-girlfriend and I hate him now” or “You know he plays ‘Song For the Dumped’ all slowed down and in a minor key?” or “I had tickets, but I never went”, you’re familiar with Benjamin on a stage with his piano. Point is, whatever your stance on the man as a songwriter, his live shows can’t help but put a big ol’ grin on your face and offer some of the best singalong tunes out there.

So, brush up on the horn part in “Army” and check out Ben Folds on the road this fall. He’ll be supporting his new album Lonely Avenue, the highly anticipated collaboration between him and English author Nick Hornby (High Fidelity, About A Boy, An Education). The tour kicks off November 5th at Chicago’s Riviera Theater and will conclude in Nashville on November  27th at Nashville’s Tennessee Performing Arts Center to benefit the Nashville Symphony. Check out the full tour dates below. Tickets are on sale this weekend and are available at Ticketmaster.com

Lonely Avenue is out September 21st via Nonesuch records.
