Bummer on the songs not being full, but I went medium grade VIP at a General Admission show this tour because of it being, well, General Admission, but the 239 price value being outside of my budget.... because I'm going to 6 shows. OH GOD I HAVE A PROBLEM

Idk if now that Dave Cobb runs the place if they let you take tours, but it used to be you could tour that studio. Otherwise all you'll see is the outside of a building. Otherwise all I can think of is the Exit/In; the venue that the Way to Normal songs were debuted at.

I thought the Master's Class and Meet and Great were well worth it. It was nice to get a couple of questions answered and just to meet him and say thanks. He takes time to thoughtfully respond and goes into detail instead of just giving a brief sentence and moving on. I also snuck a question in during the meet and great, which I wasn't supposed to do but he was perfectly fine with answering it and I got a cool shot of him playing the piano in addition to my regular photo. I honestly thought the soundcheck really wasn't that great and wouldn't pay for it for a couple reasons. First, you basically get a twenty second snippit of a song so it sounds a bit rushed. Second, in my case, people ended up requesting songs that he played during the show so a little bit of that initial excitement after hearing a song begin was gone. Kudos to the people that requested Carrying Cathy and Sports and Wine but a lot of the people will be asking for Army, The Luckiest, Underground, etc. I mean yes it's cool to hear those but most of us have heard those plenty of times live already. Lastly, it's really informal in kind of a negative way where it's just people shouting out songs so there's a chance you may not even get a song in.

Hey, I'll be in Nashville in about a week's time.  Anything special worth checking out from a Ben Folds fan perspective?  I know he's not at RCA Studio A anymore but I plan on taking a peek since it's nearby some other attractions I'm going to.

40 CAD Regular
 :o
I may be crazy, but not THAT crazy

EDIT: I lied. I am that crazy. Doing it.


Which level?!


And I feel you. I am doing one of the Luckiest levels of the GULP 6 shows I bought tickets to today.

I was only supposed to buy for the 3 in Florida. Somehow I ended up with the 3 in Georgia too.
Nice, I'm just doing the 1 show in Vancouver. I went for the AMAA.  I scrolled through the meet & greet photos from 2016 (someone posted a link on Reddit): https://cid.smugmug.com/Ben-Folds-2016/ and was tempted by the intimate numbers.  Looks like only 12 individuals at the Toronto show!  Fortunately my job is decent enough that I can not feel too too guilty to do this as a one-time splurge.

I happened to be plotting a weekend trip back home in August, which would be about a $300 flight, so basically I'm doing this show in lieu of that trip, ha ha. My family understands. ;D

LOL.

I laugh. Because. I just did the same thing. Hahahahahahahahah

Honestly, some of you seem like you pretty much have access to Ben at any concert you go to, I have no idea how to you do it.

I shelled out for it because I knew it would likely be my only chance to talk to and get a photo op with Ben, so even though that was like 20 seconds total, I have zero regrets.  Bucket list item achieved. 

Bottom line: If you want to meet Ben very briefly, hear him answer questions and get to request little pieces of songs he rarely plays during Soundcheck, it's worth it.

Thanks for the review.... what's with the crocodile??

He looks better in photos than I do, and the look on Ben's face was priceless. ;D
