Ben Folds Symphony Orchestra Tour 2014 Announced

Ben Folds has announced that he will perform a series of concerts this November and December, accompanied by a full orchestra in each city. The Ben Folds Symphony Orchestra Tour will see the acclaimed songwriter and piano man perform with the country’s most renowned orchestras.

Though no longer an Adelaidean, we’re still proud to call Ben Folds one of our strongest and most beloved musical allies. Before he was rocking the overtures, he was doing likewise with the suburbs and with our angst-ridden teenage years as the leader of the singular and irreverent Ben Folds Five.

More recently, Folds has been spending his time in opera houses and concert halls around the world, playing selections from his extensive catalogue — including treasured cuts from Ben Folds Five, his solo work, and his new orchestral composition — accompanied by different orchestras.

This is a chance to see Ben Folds in a rare and unique setting and to hear some of his classic tunes like you’ve never heard them before. The tour kicks off Friday, 14th November with two nights at the Sydney Opera House. Readers can check below for all dates and venue and ticketing details.
