Ben Folds at The Egg

ben folds musician 2016

A solo Ben Folds is set to stop at The Egg September 26 for a show. Tickets go on sale this Friday (July 15) -- they're $39.50 and up. (It looks like there's also a pre-sale.)

Tour blurbage:

Folds' upcoming solo tour comes at the anniversary of his critically acclaimed most recent album So There (New West Records). The record debuted last September at #1 on both Billboard's Classical and Classical Crossover charts. So There showcases new pop songs by Folds, along with the debut recording of his critically acclaimed "Concerto For Piano and Orchestra." The album has been praised for its forward-thinking studio craft and creative spontaneity.

The tour is being touted as a "solo rock tour," and "will feature Folds performing his classic and current pop songs, telling stories, interacting with the audiences, and improvisation with a host of instruments."

Dweezil Zappa
Also set for The Egg: Dweezil Zappa's "DWEEZIL ZAPPA Plays Whatever The F@%k He Wants Tour a tribute to 50 Years Of Frank" on October 25. Tickets go on sale Friday (July 15) -- they're $34.50 and up.

Zappa was at The Egg last year playing Frank Zappa's music and that show sold out. So getting tickets sooner rather than later isn't a bad idea if you want to go.
