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 »

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.


Ticket holders for the Sunday November 12, 2017 will receive a FULL Refund.  If you purchased your tickets through the Olympia Theater Box Office with a credit card, that card has been issued a refund.  Please allow 5-7 business days for the transaction to reflect on your bank card statement.   If you have questions or need further information; send your inquiry to or call our office on Monday at 305.374.2444.

Once again the November 12, 2017 performance of Ben Folds: Paper Airplane Request Tour has been cancelled, ticket holders will recieve a full refund.

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!

Set List:
1. Phone In A Pool ("Nice inclusion of "I F*cked up the words").
2. Annie Waits
3. Uncle Walter (cool story about a drunk construction worker that worked with his dad, always telling a ten year old Ben Folds what he would do if he was president...basis for the song)
4. Bastard (with 4 part harmony)
5. Still Fighting It (Three part harmony with opening act Tall Heights).
6. So There
7. Landed
8. Not A Fan (story about a fan at a BF5 show that snuck into the back with a knife and said he wasn't a fan of them but his girlfriend was....hence the song. As Ben said, "I don't think he and his girlfriend were really on the same page").
9. Capable of Anything
10. You Don't Know Me
11. Steven's Last Night in Town
Paper Airplane Set
1. Magic
2. The Ascent of Stan
3. Philosophy
4. Verbal Request for Monster Mash...he cracked up and played the first two chords.
5. Effington
6. The Luckiest
7. Zak and Sara
8. Silver Street
9. Kate
10. Jesusland
11. Narcolepsy
1. One Angry Dwarf and 200 Solemn Faces
2. Army

Lots of crowd involvement with the backing vocals tonight, and the crowd was way more into the show than the last show at the Riv with Ymusic where everyone was talking through the whole show.

Ben's friends have been writing musicals - so hopefully that's inspiring. (Sara B and Tim Minchin notably, and Josh Groban just starred in one as well).

I saw a one act play entirely based on Annie Waits way way way back in like 2006 at a college theater conference. I've been dreaming of one ever since.
