Oh, I must state how much it makes me smile that the last.fm page for BF5 says "ON TOUR."

Not to double post.

Here's an commercial for it.

There will be bonus material available at nowhat.com "when the show airs. " which makes me think it's streamable.

"Sorry, this is a private video"

Can't watch Myspace videos anyway, for some odd reason.

My only saying to this is OH. MY. GOD.

I wish I lived near NC, or had enough money/time to go. This breaks my heart in half.
My new philosophy is that a crappy tape deck somewhere plays a greatest hits collection of strange and tender moments, lost, stranded, and forgotten. I'll meet you there.

Before it was official, I was like "oh, that'd be so awesome but there's no way I can possibly go".  Who am I kidding?  Now I'm checking flights, checking buses, accomodations... I've gotta go.  This'll be my substitute Ben cruise.  ;D \m/

f*ck YES!
I mean I'm late to the party as usual but I'm saving the money I get from this next gig and it's going towards a f*cking ticket.
I WILL make time to drive down there and I WILL make it to that show.
I'm gonna tell me bandmates to screw off if we have a gig that day.
ONCE IN A LIFETIME f*ckING EVENT!

And I know it's already been said, but....
.....WE f*ckING CALLED IT!

Even though we probably would've called it if it was anything else.
First thing monday morning I'm buying a ticket, getting up pretty f*cking early to do this too.

Now it looks like my fall break plans got scrapped.
dont overplay, keep it simple and in the pocket, support the song, and you will be asked to play more than you have time to. - Chuck Folds

YEAH!!!!!!!! I will definitely be there seeing as how I live in Chapel Hill and have wanted to see BF5 for hmmmm about 10 years now? If anyone will be here from outta town, let me know if you have any questions on where it is, what to eat, where Ben will be afterwards (yes I have met him 3 times in Chapel Hill!!!), etc...Chapel Hill=best place on earth. And throw in Ben Folds FIVE=the best place in the universe.

Shall we have a Ben nerd convention before/after the show???

It looks like UNC is an assigned seat place... perhaps we should take your inside scoop and frequent the right places, as a whole burbian convention.

Last time I was in Chapel Hill, we ate at some pizza place... UH. f*ck. What's it called? Ben's on the wall in the "mural" and the painting of him is shit.

Peppers Pizza!!! I will most definitely be eating there before the concert if anyone wants to meet up.
I know you're in there, I can see you. You're saying you're okay, I don't believe you.

Here, here.  Although I did see BFF back in the WAEA days, so I am STOKED for you guys who became fans later.  BUT...I still want to see them.

It's easy to be easy and free when it doesn't mean anything...

How utterly fab is that?  Now I need to a) persuade my husband that we should visit the US, b) somewho afford the airfare from the UK.

That is going to be one special show!
