BEN FOLDS is touring this fall, and where is he coming to? THE LIED CENTER at the University of Kansas. On November 6. I drove by the Lied Center EVERY DAY on my way to work. It’s maybe 2.5 miles from where I used to live. He would have been RIGHT HERE. No West Coast tour dates up at all (yet? I hope) but he also has a scheduled date at Bender Arena on the campus of American University in Washington, D.C.
Dear Ben Folds,
Please come to the University of Oregon. If you need a place to crash, I have a guest room and a really nice kitchen. Bring your family. I promise not to drool or be stalkery, particularly if you’re willing to stay up and tell me why you’re so cool and to occasionally let me quote your own songs back at you. For instance: “The songs you wrote got me through a lot, just want to tell you that.”
