After many weeks of hopes and whispers, I can now officially confirm that Ben Folds will be back in the UK in January 2007!
A reliable source has let me know that he will be playing on the 23rd of January at the Hammersmith Apollo in London. There are no other dates confirmed, but I would be very surprised if it was only a one-off.
At the moment, there is still no ticket info. I'm hoping the fanclub will get it's act together for us UKers, but just in case they don't I'll let you guys know when tickets are available.
The gig at Hammersmith Apollo is on the 23rd January 2007, NOT the 27th as I had previously reported!
Apologies for the confusion, and cheers to a second - anonymous - source for backing that up. In the words of that old Rice Krispies ad: 'Thank You, Whoever You Are!'
And as if that wasn't enough, you're now able to see a lot of Ben's MySpace gig on Youtube. There is a VCR'd version currently there, and I'm in the process of getting the direct webstream rip chopped and uploaded.
To kick you off, here's that awesome introduction jam:
If that synth is anything to go by, I can't wait till his new album (due sometime 2007).
