Scene News: Ben Folds Adds Second & Final Brisbane Show + Anticipated First Melbourne Show To National Tour

Pop-piano virtuoso, BEN FOLDS, today announces the addition of a second and final Brisbane show, after the first Brisbane sold out in a matter of days.

Having already sold out one Brisbane show on Sunday 4th February, Folds will play a second show at Brisbane’s The Tivoli on Friday 2nd February, as part of his national Paper Aeroplane Request Tour. Tickets for the second and final Brisbane show will go on sale on Friday 29th September at 10am AEST.

Also announced today are eagerly awaited details of Folds’ Melbourne show, which will see him play Zoo Twilights at Melbourne Zoo on Friday 16^th February, the first show to be announced from the Zoo Twilights 2018 concert program.

Next year, Folds will bring his distinctive vocals, deft musicianship, witty lyricism and high-octane onstage energy to ten unique performances around the country. In these solo performances, Folds’, who is widely regarded as one of most distinctive singer-songwriters of the last 25-years, will curate a playlist armed with a songbook spanning his entire career.

In the 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.

“One of the greatest modern song-writers…” – The Australian

“Ben Folds is a charming showman, and within minutes the audience was completely his.”
– Buzz Mag UK

For die-hard Folds fans and curious newcomers alike, there’s no better way to experience this consistently surprising alt-rock troubadour.
