Multi-platinum selling, singer/composer/producer Ben Folds has announced a series of new solo rock concert dates for Fall 2017 entitled his “Paper Airplane Request Tour.”  The tour kicks off on August 27 and runs through November 12.

What initially began as a request for songs as encores in his shows, has now become a central element for many of Folds solo shows when, as he begins the second half of his concert performances, he cues the audience to launch their song requests toward the stage via paper airplanes.

“Taking paper airplane requests from fans is fun, and gives everyone in the room a chance to request what they’d like to hear,” said Folds. “The first time I brought up paper airplane requests was when I tweeted before a show: ‘If you have a song you want me to play, then write it down on a piece of paper and launch it as a paper airplane after I give the countdown.’  The response was incredible, with waves of paper airplanes flying from the audience on to the stage right on cue.”
