Ben Folds coming to the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg
It won't be the same as performing with the Florida Orchestra, which he did last year. But Ben Folds is on his way back to Tampa Bay with another classically trained ensemble in tow.
Folds will perform with the chamber-music sextet yMusic at the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg on April 20. Folds and yMusic released the collaborative album So There this fall, and have been playing festivals and headlining shows all year.
If you buy a ticket, go into the show expecting a few cuts from So There, a few cuts from Folds' solo catalog and a few from his work with Ben Folds Five. It's not a greatest-hits set, but you might hear songs like Army, Mess, Annie Waits and Evaporated.
Tickets are $35.50 and up, and they go on sale Dec. 11. Click here.
