Ben Folds is returning Down Under and will perform with the finest orchestras Australia has to offer.

Folds will join the Sydney, Western Australian, Adelaide, Tasmanian and Melbourne Symphony Orchestras for nine concerts nationwide. The performances will include excerpts from his new Concerto for Piano and Orchestra as well as orchestrated versions of his most famous pop hits.


“As far as this tour goes, I’m taking into account that I’m not there to demoralize the orchestra by coming through with a loud rock band and grafting high volume, stupid parts onto what they’re doing” said Folds. “To me the orchestra is the rock band.”

Ben Folds will play with Sydney Symphony Orchestra on Friday November 14 and Saturday November 15 at the Sydney Opera House. Tickets go on sale Friday July 4 through
