Ben Folds Five
This winter, the original members of Ben Folds Five (Ben Folds, Darren Jessee, Robert Sledge) return to the UK for the first time since Christmas 1999.
Ben, Robert and Darren first got back together last summer to record three new songs for a career retrospective 3-CD set released in October of last year. Finding it to be fun and feeling that old magic, the three original members decided to go the distance and record a full new album at Ben's Nashville studio earlier this year.
Following the upcoming August release of the album, Ben Folds Five will play a full North American tour in September-October, drop down to Australia and then begin the UK/Ireland run of dates.
This event takes place at O2 Academy Birmingham, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Pianist and songwriter Ben Folds reunites with his old band mates. The confusingly named North Carolina trio (there isn't actually five of them!) became a cult hit in the mid 90s with their quirky brand of piano-based rock, releasing such anthems as 'Underground' and 'Brick'. Following 3 successful albums, Ben launched a solo career, but the band have recently got back together and release a new album in Summer 2012.
