AEG Live Nashville says
Ben Folds has announced that he will continue his extensive North American tour with Brooklyn-based chamber sextet yMusic in a series of spring dates slated for April-May 2016. Supporting Folds’ critically acclaimed new album, So There, the tour includes shows in New York City, Los Angeles, Nashville, Washington, D.C., Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Austin, Denver, Montreal, Toronto, and more. Presale tickets and VIP packages will be available starting Wednesday, December 9. See below for full tour details or visit www.BenFolds.com/events.

Debuting at #1 on Billboard’s Classical and Classical Crossover charts, So There showcases new pop songs by the multi-platinum-selling singer/songwriter/producer, along with the debut recording of Folds’ critically acclaimed “Concerto For Piano and Orchestra.” The album was recorded in just under two weeks in New York, Los Angeles, and Folds’ own historic RCA Studio A in Nashville and has been praised for its forward-thinking studio craft and creative spontaneity. So There is currently available at www.BenFolds.com, as well as iTunes and Amazon.

NPR’s “All Things Considered” heralds the new album as “the most loveable piece of music I’ve ever heard from Ben Folds,” while The Guardian writes “the new tracks with yMusic, the textures of the ensemble instruments – string trio, flute, clarinet, trumpet – are not ornamentally grafted on the music: they are the music.”

Folds first found international success as the leader of the Ben Folds Five. His subsequent solo career has seen the release of multiple studio albums, a pair documenting his renowned live performances, a remix collection, music for film and TV, an all a capella record, as well as numerous collaborations with artists spanning Sara Bareilles to William Shatner.

In March 2014, Folds premiered “Concerto For Piano and Orchestra” accompanied by the Nashville Symphony. Since then, he has spent much of his time touring around the globe, performing the three-movement concerto and orchestrations of his classic pop hits before sold-out crowds with some of the world’s greatest symphony orchestras.

A Nashville resident, Folds owns and operates the historic RCA Studio A, which is where he has composed, collaborated, produced and recorded much of his genre-defying work, as well as that of other artists. Folds has earned universal respect and praise for his insight as judge on five highly rated seasons of NBC’s a capella competition series, “The Sing Off.” In addition, he has made cameo appearances in a variety of film and TV projects, including a role on NBC’s “Community.”
