Does this collection still exist anywhere? From the looks of things, there's some really rare stuff in here I haven't been able to find anywhere else.

Unsure how active this board is but I wanted to spread this around so enough 'fans' see it. A few weeks ago, some friends and I got together to perform an hours worth of Ben Folds Five in my home of Perth, Western Australia. I had a bunch of cameras running and have just finished editing the show. Here's Uncle Walter: https://youtu.be/Ua6GWlHpSwY

Setlist performed:
One Angry Dwarf
Philosophy
Uncle Walter
Don't Change Your Plans
Selfless, Cold & Composed
Jackson Cannery
Best Imitation Of Myself
Battle Of Who Could Care Less
Alice Childress
Michael Praytor 5yrs Later
Kate
Julianne
Army
Song For The Dumped
Underground

Hope ya'll dig it! This was a result of 2 rehearsals

Some off the beaten track venues there - Win for Norwich though! Sometimes it's good having a mother in law who has priority booking because she practically lives in the venue. Second row!

News / Miami concert tonight CANCELLED
« Last post by 3 Peckered Owl on November 12, 2017, 01:34:50 PM »
BEN FOLDS SHOW CANCELLED DUE TO ILLNESS NOV. 12, 2017

Dear Patron:

Unfortunately, tonight’s show, The Paper Airplane Request Tour featuring Ben Folds, at the Olympia Theater in Miami has been cancelled. Refunds are available at point of purchase.

A Note From Ben Folds:

It pains me to do this, but I have to cancel tonight's show. During this most recent tour run I picked up some kind of virus and it's knocked me flat on my ass. My doctor has ordered immediate bed rest.  This is the first time I've ever had a show cancelled because I got sick. But I have no choice.  I'll be back in Miami and promise to make it up to you all.

-Ben

I guess Ben never heard of POSTPONING a show, rather than flat out cancelling.   

He usually avoids South Florida like the plague in the first place.   Other than his piano concerto thing in Miami 2015, he hasn't been here since April 2009 in Boca Raton.   And before that, not since 1997!  (with the exception of a couple of short opening act sets (for Tori Amos, John Mayer, etc.)    Anyway, this sucks!
