Details

The cult hero's solo show.

Taking to the stage with just a grand piano for company, cult hero Ben Folds plays tracks both classic and current.

After focusing on large-scale live work with orchestras in recent years, this show recalls his original solo tours where he defied sceptics by delivering high energy rock performances using only a piano.

There are few musicians that can draw on such a varied and vast body of work, and tonight don’t be surprised to hear Ben Folds Five favourites followed by stripped back renditions of newer songs. The real joy of a Ben Folds concert comes from the man himself, with his love for the music shining through on every occasion.

Ben Folds is widely regarded as one of the major music influencers of his generation. He’s created an enormous body of genre-bending music that includes pop albums with Ben Folds Five, multiple solo albums, and collaborative records with artists from Sara Bareilles and Regina Spektor, to William Shatner. His most recent album is a blend of pop songs and his Concerto For Piano And Orchestra that soared to the top of both the Billboard classical and classical crossover charts.

For over a decade he’s performed with some of the world’s greatest symphony orchestras, and was recently named as the first ever Artistic Advisor to the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center.
