Finally some official confirmation! Counting Crows' myspace has been updated with news of their December tour, listing them as 'with Ben Folds'. The dates are as follows:

December 2nd Newcastle Arena Newcastle, UK
December 4th Nottingham Arena Nottingham, UK
December 5th Wembley Arena London, UK
December 7th Manchester Arena Manchester, UK
December 8th Cardiff Arena Cardiff, UK
December 10th Bournemouth Arena Bournemouth, UK

Counting Crows will also be playing at the SECC in Glasgow on the 22nd, but Ben will not be there for that one.

FACT: The last time Ben supported Counting Crows was also at an arena. The Rimac Arena in San Diego on the 6th April 1997 on a six-date tour (as Ben Folds Five, of course), that kicked off on the 31st March.

Thanks to Alex for the heads up!
