Ben Folds has announced 2017 dates that are being billed as the Paper Airplane Request Tour. In a statement, Folds explained the meaning behind the tour name:
Taking paper airplane requests from fans is fun, and gives everyone in the room a chance to request what they'd like to hear... The first time I brought up paper airplane requests was when I tweeted before a show: 'If you have a song you want me to play, then write it down on a piece of paper and launch it as a paper airplane after I give the countdown.' The response was incredible, with waves of paper airplanes flying from the audience on to the stage right on cue.
The North America shows are scheduled to begin on August 27 in Kansas and extend until mid-November. These are in addition to a number of solo appearances Ben will be making, where tickets are already on sale.
