Los Angeles, practice folding those paper airplanes so long and be sure to have one that can fly from the audience all the way to the stage because Ben Folds is coming to The Wiltern on 15 September 2024 with his epic, one-of-a-kind Paper Airplane Request Tour, with special guest Lindsey Kraft!

What started as a creative, interactive way of requesting songs for encores became a full-fledged core element in one of the most unique shows to hit the stages this fall!

Piano pop crooner, singer-songwriter, composer, and genre-bender Ben Folds has been levitating spirits and showcasing an abundance of musicality with top hits such as "Brick," "Landed,"
"Philosophy" and "Song For The Dumped", and are set to wow and dazzle with an impossible level of brilliance, as only he can!

Tickets are priced from only $76, a total steal for a show of this caliber, so hit the button and grab those front seats right now!

Ben Folds is one of the major influences of this generation with his incredible musical prowess, abundance of musicality, unmistakable voice, rhythmic piano playing… and, more recently, paper airplane flying, adding a unique, exciting, yet personal element to his latest tour: “It’s the purest, most low-tech form of engagement that creates a special bond with my audiences.”

He stepped into the spotlight as the frontman and pianist of the alternative rock trio, Ben Folds Five. However, it was his debut solo album, "Rockin' The Suburbs," that shot him to the top of the ladder in 2001. During his two-decade career, he undertook many successful musical ventures, producing numerous pop albums with Ben Folds Five and recording multiple solo albums and collaborations, including some of the world's greatest symphony orchestras. His latest album, "What Matters Most," has been received globally with critical acclaim, spawning the hit "Winslow Gardens."

Ben Folds’ award shelf is sweating under the weight of multiple impressive awards: he received a Recording Industry Association of America Gold Record Award, was inducted into the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame in 2011, and received a star on the Music City Walk of Fame, among others.

It's all a celebration of brilliance, creativity, poignant tunes outlined with humor, and, of course, your requests on a paper airplane. What will it be – "Landed," "Army," "One Angry Dwarf and 200 Solemn Faces", "Exhausting Lover," or "Selfless, Cold, and Composed"?

The multifaceted Lindsey Kraft is the perfect pairing with Ben Folds, with her brand of theatrical pop songs, including songs from her musical "Love, Me." Her brilliant piano playing and songs are captivating, promising to keep audiences spellbound. Her live performance of hits such as “Onces," "The Beginning," "Daddy," "Alice," and "Beautiful Pain" is an absolute treat!

The fantastic and popular Wiltern is the perfect venue for what promises to be an incredible, unforgettable experience. The theatre can accommodate up to 4,000 fans, split over five levels, including a mezzanine area with two rear bars to keep you hydrated.
