UK/Australia Tour Theories and Rumours

5/July/2005 - 16:36

Ben Folds to tour the UK and Australia later this year?First of all, it has already been rumoured that Ben may be back in the UK around Christmas. I've had word from a promoter that there IS a definite plan for this, though no dates have been set. It may just be a London thing, but I can only assume that to make it worth the cost it'd have to be at least a couple of shows? We shall see...

And while we're speculating, Ben may be heading for Australia this October, co-headlining with Mr. Ben Lee (who is joining Folds and Rufus Wainright for the 'Odd Man Out' tour of America this August).

Lee reported on his website that he has some upcoming news about his tour, saying that he 'can't let the cat out of the bag just yet, but its gonna be a mega-bill. very cool'. Folds mentioned around the time of the WASO shows that he maybe be back in Australia around October, and he and Lee are no strangers when it comes to touring, as all fans of The Bens will know. Coincidence? We shall have to see. Watch this space - you'll know as soon as I do!

Thanks to Kristian and Chris!
