Tour Board / Houston anyone?
« on: July 18, 2006, 03:27:53 PM »
So, a little birdie told me today that Ben's playing with the Houston Symphony Orchestra on November 1st. Presale happens to be August 1st.

I'm no where near there, but Jared told me they'd be in the studio then.... unless that just happend, with Micheal's site saying that and all.... which leaves me with a better outlook for Ben shows in my part of the world sooner than 2007.

Okay, can't find the original thread about asking him...

But, the .org had this posted: http://www.theadvertiser.news.com.au/common/story_page/0,5936,19708297%5E31624,00.html

General Board / Does anyone else remember...

The day that you became a Ben Folds (Five) fan?

Because, I sure do. It was a year ago today... 07/04/2005 I saw Ben live at Summerfest here in Mil-town, Wisconsin. And there wasn't any going back. In this past year I've been to seven shows, including that one, and met him four times. It's been a great year. And now I'm really wondering what my life was like before the Folds came into it. Seems like a twisted existance.

I've also realized that a week of my last year of existance was spent waiting for/attending Ben shows. I wonder how many hours I've spent shivering outside of a theater.... Wisconsin, first week of March? Not exactly warm.... And when you get there at noon, and the doors don't open for 6 hours. Oh man.

So does anyone else know?

Tour Board / Milwaukee Show set list and pics 5/27/06

Got to the Summerfest Grounds at 10:30 AM. Other people didn't show up til noon, 12:30ish. I love being a BenFreak though. And, I think I should get a sticker for being CRAZY.

The new stage is nice. It was ridiculous trying to get in there though. I was there first and then didn't get first dibs on seats, but we ended up dead on to the stool front row anyways. Suckers who don't know any better about where the piano will be.

The first cover band wasn't bad. Actually, rather okay.

Second one was HIGH-larious. Every freaking song was "for the ladies". haha. And some crazy ass outfits too. Oh, God. Anyways.

So, Brandon, techie extraordinare, (the one with the green jacket, that he didn't have on today, and I was confused, DONT MESS WITH MY NORMS!!!), took forever getting the instruments ready. And all the instruments weren't the regulars. Ben played on a Steinway instead of the typical Baldwin, Lindz' drums were a different color, and so was Jared's bass. First time happening for me to not see Ben on that beloved Baldwin.

SET LIST:
1. Theme from Dr Pyser
I'd never seen Pyser, so when they came out and started playing it, I was already aware it was going to be a good night.
2. Gone
3. Bastard
4. Jesusland
5. All U Can Eat
6. Trusted
7. Annie Waits
8. Still Fighting It
9. Bitches Ain't Shit
SOLO:
10. Brick
11. Fred Jones part II
12. Mess
(I think I just about crapped myself when he started this. He told us that since he's played so many gigs in the area recently he was going to play something he hadn't played in a while. And yay, made me a very happy person, thought I'd never have the chance of seeing this one live... Brooke and I just kinda screamed at each other when he started playing this. Because we'd been talking about it this afternoon waiting in line, how we'll NEVER see it. And then, tada! Here it is!)
Band Back:
13. Army
(He just stopped conducting at some point, and was just smiling because we were all doing it already.)
14. Zak and Sara
15. Landed
16. Not the Same
(AHH YAY! He split the crowd half and half and did the knee thing. I wanted to see that. And now I have.)

So 16 songs, really not all that bad.

There was a boy there that I know through the livejournal community that got what he thinks is a pretty good bootleg, he missed half of Gracie for having to change discs or something, but I'll let you guys know when that's up.
