ORIGINAL STORY: Melbourne Zoo’s annual concert series Zoo Twilights has announced its return for 2018, with a big-name international act already locked in.
Melbourne Zoo Twilights will return on each weekend between Friday, 26th January and Saturday, 10th March, and has today announced that American singer-songwriter Ben Folds will perform at next year’s event, while he’s down under on his 2018 Australian tour.
Folds will play an all-ages open air show on Friday, 16th February, supported by Lucy Rose. The show will see Folds play his two-part solo show, which is made up of a curated setlist and a audience-selected ‘Paper Aeroplane Request’ set, where audience members can throw their song requests onto the stage using paper planes.
A bunch of other acts are still to be announced on the Melbourne Zoo Twilights lineup, which will be revealed in full on Wednesday, 18th October.
Next year’s shows, as always, will benefit the not-for-profit Melbourne Zoo, which each ticket sold raising funds for the work of Zoos Victoria. Food trucks and bars will also be on call during each show.
Catch all the details, below.
