Ben Folds: Paper Aeroplane Request Tour
Singer-songwriter and piano-pop maverick, BEN FOLDS, today announces he will return to Australia in 2018 to take in theatre dates around the country, hitting Canberra Theatre Centre on Wednesday 7 February.
The virtuoso brings his two-part solo piano show, delivering a high-energy rock performance using the intimacy of just a piano. For the first half of the show, Folds will curate a playlist armed with a songbook spanning his entire career, likely to include hits like Brick, Rockin’ The Suburbs and One Angry Dwarf and 200 Solemn Faces.
In the concert’s second half, Folds will hand over the reins to his fans for a Paper Aeroplane Request set, during which audience members will be encouraged to write their song requests onto a piece of paper, to be folded into a paper plane and launched onto the stage on cue. Folds will then randomly select and perform the songs requested.
Folds’ blend of distinctive vocals, deft musicianship, witty lyricism and high-octane onstage energy will be showcased in their purest and most spontaneous form in these solo performances. For die-hard Folds fans and curious newcomers alike, there’s no better way to experience one of the most distinctive singer-songwriters of the last 25 years.
