Hey hey. I too was at this show. I had honestly never been into Ben Folds, nore really ever heared his music untill this night. In fact really, the only stuff I ever heared of him was anything that had relation to Weird Al (Time, Landed (Leno appearance), Rockin The Suburbs, and Al's Why Does This Always Happen To Me?). I heared from other Al fans that Ben puts on a fantastic show, so when I found out that he was coming to Duluth, I snapped tickets up as soon as I could, not know what to expect out of a Ben Folds concert. I was greatly impressed. The man was simply amazing, and since the show Ive been hooked. And apparently this show was longer than a lot of others, so that was a nice added bonus for a first-time show. :)

And for those who checked out the recording, glad you enjoyed it. Anybody know how Ben feels about recording his shows? I just hope I wasnt stepping on anyones toes doing so. Obviously I'm not pulling a Jeff Mayer by selling them. Haha, that comment during the concert was great.

old, but, last current statement about ben folds (five) recordings; "Discreet hand-held boots are alright by the band; Ben has mentioned that it can be distracting to be playing and see thirty microphones being held in the air. The band had previously insisted that venues let fans tape, but they no longer argue with the venue when it comes to taping, due to the fact that they have too many other things to worry about before a show. If the venue doesn't allow taping, there's not much of a chance that the band will try to do anything about it." http://www.fmaynard.com/bff/faq.html



oh. and welcome to the dark side.

Aw, thats ok...there's always the next batch. :)

Say, Ive been kicking myself for not bookmarking a site I found yesterday with some shows online that you could save...it was something like stayeduptoolate? Anyone know what site Im talking about? I know my Duluth show ended up on there. I cant for the life of me find it again...

"i woke up way too late" is from a Ben Folds Five song called Evaporated. that I HIGHLY. HIGHLY. HIGHLY. HIGHLY suggest.



it may or may not be my favorite folds track ever.....



also the site is the home of all the raretracks and goodies and bootlegs and videos and interviews that we come across. that the band either knows about and is cool with or is turning a blind eye too. (hi!)

Thanks for the link and the info! I'm very newbish here, so this is very helpfull. I feel bad as I've got quite a few concerts of Bens on my comp but I havent bought any CD's yet...on Friday I plan on getting the majority of the CD's from Amazon...that'll ease the guilt.

Glad to see I've allready made a couple friends in the Ben Folds fanbase. :)
