Ben reveals in the interview (a radio show on Inter FM, and on the latest issue of Keyboard Magazine Japan) that Ben Folds Five are planning to release a live album. No details yet, but they recorded all the shows of this reunion tour...as always Tongue

They will also tour the U.S. this summer. LA date was announced yesterday.

YAY. I could go for reliving my 2012 on record. Suuuure thing. Ben Folds Five Live. kinda a mouthful, but you know, i'm sure they'll call it something smart. . . .  or not. Whatever.
And super yay - tour date. Even if it's one it means there's more to come!

Haha, there are so many things I want to see from this tour on that CD. Is it wishful thinking to hope for a multi-disc set? Ahaha...

Ooh, I just realized I'm going to be vacationing a lot during the Summer... I hope I can make it to one of the concerts at some point. My fear is that if I vacation somewhere they'll play in my hometown and when I return home they'll play where I was just vacationing and so on and so forth. SCARY STUFF HERE GUYS. I NEED TO SEE ANOTHER BF5 SHOW GUYS.

As good as they've sounded on this tour, I'm all for a live album.

I really want it to be full of stuff they wouldn't normall play live. Like some of the RTB's would be cool. I'd like to hear the one they played at Dallas (the show I went to) in more pristine quality than the bootleg version I have. I'd like to hear Hiroshima with the Five, just because I'm interested to hear how it sounds especially since Robert apparently plays a totally different solo than Jared did. I'd wanna have a good quality live version of "Draw a Crowd" since the whole "so smooth you can hear the beard" sounds so much cooler live because of that one acapella part they do live. I guess Landed would be kinda cool, but I'd be fine without it.

I know they're gonna put a live "Erase Me" on there, which is alright, though I'm not too fond of the live version (I feel they could give it a tune up and it'd be better, but it sounds kinda empty or something right now). I'm totally excited about all this shit happenin' this Summer, though! LIKE OH MY GOD

Yeah I am really holding an irrational hope for Carry On Wayward Son from Indianapolis.

Unfortunately, it'll probably just be made up of the favorites, basically like a "Greatest Hits and More" thing, but live. Which is unfortunate, but expected. I wish it would be filled of all the weird unique stuff though. Meh :/

Yeah, but I mean, even Ben Folds Live has Silver Street.

That's true. Would it be too much to ask for a two disc set, disc one being the typical setlist, disc two being all the crazy stuff, and then a limited edition bonus DVD? IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK

The video was hilarious (although lacked a good bit of Robert and Darren).
