General Board / Nashville
« Last post by Fongolia on June 20, 2017, 12:49:38 AM »
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.

Prices are out for the Vancouver show:
349 CAD for AMAA/MasterClass
179 CAD for Soundcheck
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

I feel you on that!

I'm a crazy lady and will drive 8 hours each way if necessary. :P

I've never done either of the upgrades - because I'd rather go to three shows at 50 instead of one show at 150

Unless he only comes to town every 20 years! I always have to travel and spend a few hundred bucks a show as is
