Rumor: 5/30/09 - Kansas City somewhere.

DANG! I might be able to make that KC one!
How big a grain of salt should I take this rumor with?

Kansas City!  5/30?  Probably City Market since that's a Saturday night.  It's a great outdoor venue, but the noise laws force them to stop playing at 11:00.  Of course, if he started on-time at 8:00 or 8:30, instead of 9:00 or 9:30, it wouldn't matter.

AHHHHH KANSAS CITY IS NEAR ENOUGH TO ME TO MERIT A TRIP!
Well, actually it's not near at all.  But whatevs, I might have to go anyway.

Please tell us this rumor has been confirmed!
Where did you hear about it?  Like others said, how skeptical should I be about this???

Who has been to a show at the Crossroads in KC?  What's the seating chart like and is the VIP (almost $80/ticket) worth it?

I've never been to a show there, but we just bought the VIP tickets this afternoon (show 22, most likely). The VIP tickets are described thusly:

Quote
Next to venue parking, private VIP only entrance, front row viewing, VIP only bar, VIP only restrooms, waitress service, complimentary beverage (non-alcoholic) and snack service.

VIP Tickets get you access to Exclusive Viewing Areas, Exclusive Bar with Top Shelf Liquor, c*cktail Service, Beverage and Snack Service, Access to Private Restrooms and Massage Service at select shows.

The lines in these areas will be next to nothing since VIP access is very limited! VIP Tickets are not available for every show, so check the show details during the purchase process.

We pretty much stopped reading and made our purchase after reading "front row viewing" - I'd rather pay a premium for front row than stand outside for hours, which is what we did for too many shows last month.

Can't wait!

If ben is really playing lollapalooza (which the lolla board apparently saw it on his tour listing on the .com a couple nights ago), and he of course, apparently has said so

it means he's not playing anywhere in a 250 mile radius of chicago 60 days before or 30 days after august 7-9
http://www3.timeoutny.com/chicago/blog/out-and-about/2008/07/does-lollapalooza-make-a-loser-out-of-chicago/
it's part of the lolla clause.
there could always, of course, be a post-lolla show (oh god, ben folds at the metro? ben folds at schuba's? i might die)

....Wish he would come to New Zealand.  Or even Australia again.  I'd fly over to Australia to see him

Sweet - long time, no see - can't wait! Are you going to Omaha? We're hoping to get to Omaha somewhere around 2:30.

Yes, he is.

As he's likely to crawl back into his cave again.
