Taking to the stage with just a grand piano for company, cult hero Ben Folds plays tracks both classic and current.
After focusing on large-scale live work with orchestras in recent years, this show recalls his original solo tours where he defied sceptics by delivering high energy rock performances using only a piano. There are few musicians that can draw on such a varied and vast body of work, and tonight don’t be surprised to hear Ben Folds Five favourites followed by stripped back renditions of his more classical-leaning repertoire.
The real joy of a Ben Folds concert comes from the man himself, with his love for the music shining through on every occasion.
