Ben Folds is coming back to Australia next year for his solo shows.

The Paper Aeroplane Request Tour will visit Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra, Adelaide, Perth and Hobart as well as Auckland in February 2018, with a Melbourne date to be announced soon.

Each concert will take form of a two-part piano show. In the first half Folds will play his best hits from Rockin The Suburbs to Way to Normal and beyond, while in the second half the audiences will write their requested songs on a paper plane and fly them to the stage for the troubadour to select randomly and play. That’s right – you get to decide what Folds will play at the night.

Tickets will go on sale this Friday. For more information, visit Ben Folds’s website.
