Ben Folds is certainly no stranger to Adelaide. This August the multi-platinum singer/songwriter/producer will return to the place he once called home as part of an Australian tour in August, performing on stage with celebrated New York City-based chamber ensemble yMusic.
An inventive and prolific artist, Folds last year released the So There, an album combining chamber pop with piano concerto music and debuting at number one on both Billboard’s Classical and Classical Crossover charts.
The on stage collaboration with yMusic as part of the upcoming tour provides the perfect avenue to showcase the diverse material from this release, as well as songs from Fold’s extensive back catalogue.
“I’m looking forward to bring our new LIVE show to Australia,” Folds said. “For me, returning to Australia is like coming home, where I have deep roots and feel such a strong connection to audiences.”
Folds added that his new live show promises to deliver “just the right dynamic blend of pop and classical music with new songs and familiar hits.”
Folds will perform at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre on Thursday 25 August. Tickets are on sale now from ticketek.com.au.
