The legendary Ben Folds will bring his greatest hits to life in a Melbourne-exclusive performance at Zoo Twilights this February with support from the UK's Lucy Rose.
Widely regarded as one of the major music influencers of our generation, Ben Folds is also one of its most compelling live performers, delivering high-energy rock performances using the intimacy of just a piano.
For the first half of his Zoo Twilights show, Ben Folds will curate a playlist armed with a songbook spanning his entire career including hits like 'Brick' and 'Rockin' The Suburbs'. The reins will be handed to the audience for a Paper Aeroplane Request set for the second half - write your song requests onto a piece of paper, fold it into a paper plane, and launch it onto the stage on cue. Folds will then randomly select and perform the songs requested. Easy as 1, 2, 3.
Support on the night comes from UK indie-folk singer and guitarist Lucy Rose. A star on the rise, her music has been featured in Girls, The Vampire Diaries and Skins with Vogue calling her "one of indie music' breakout stars" and CLASH Music noting her "unquestionable talent and vulnerability in equal measure."
