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!

Sorry, I don't remember the real order.


Overall, good show.   

He played for about 2 hours and twenty minutes.   Which was more than i was expecting.    I think Ben lost track of time.   Cause near the end, someone came on stage and signaled to Ben that he could only play for 10 more minutes.   He never had a chance to do an encore.   But that's okay.

Opening act, Jukebox The Ghost were surprisingly good.   I will probably get their album.


The show was far from sold out.  (I don't think it was promoted at all... never even saw a single blurb in the local newspapers or anything.)

It was also Ben's first full length concert in South Florida, since 1997!   I guess now I can stop bitching!


(His only South Florida gigs since then:  short set as an opening act for Tori Amos, and again for John Mayer... plus a brief festival set at Langerado in the Everglades last year.)




I was originally also supposed to go to the Orlando show the night before, but had a bit of a last minute family emergency, and had to skip that one.   Of course, I had already entered and won a meet & greet for Orlando.   Luckily, when Ben's tour manager emailed me instructions for the Orlando M&G, I told her I can't go, but is there any way you can do something for me in Boca?     Which she did.   So I got to meet Ben after the show.    I thought that was very nice.



That's about it.
