http://www.broadwayworld.com/article/Ben-Folds-Regina-Spektor-Common-More-Will-Record-for-the-HAMILTON-MIXTAPE-Album-20160301

The HAMILTON cast album has already won a Grammy Award, and creator Lin-Manuel Miranda is already hard at work on his next album for the show. Miranda will release 'The Hamilton Mixtape', due later this year- featuring remixes and covers of songs from the hit show.

In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, he revealed more about the project, including that Busta Rhymes, Ben Folds, Regina Spektor, Latifah, Common, and Chance the Rapper will all record songs. He explained: "People are coming out of the woodwork, knocking on the door. Half the songs are cover versions of songs in the show, and the others are interpolations- we'll take some of this, some of that, and make something new out of it."

Tour Board / Re: VIP Don't Change Your Plans experience
« on: November 02, 2015, 01:53:27 AM »
I just experienced this last night in Huntington, NY.
http://www.cidentertainment.com/events/ben-folds-tour-2015/
1. VIP CHECK-IN
"Dedicated on-site concert host" guy from CID Entertainment was at the VIP-only check-in desk. He was very nice and gave me Rite Aid's plastic bag which contained one limited edition signed black and white print of Benís original photography, and one autographed Ben Folds Vinyl Record.


2. EARLY ENTRY
Check-in: 6 PM - 7 PM
Early Entry: 6:45 PM
Doors to the Public: 7 PM
Show: 8 PM
A message from CID says "Early entry onto the general admission floor is included with your package, and will allow you to enter the venue before doors open to the public to secure a great spot. Please make sure you are fully checked in prior to 6:45 PM to take advantage of early entry". According to the CID guy, there were only 14 people who got the VIP experience package in Huntington. But unfortunately there were only about 20 people (including VIP and general) at the venue at 6:45 PM. I'm not sure if it's worth it.
