From “Silver Street,” North Carolina, all the way across “Jesusland,” to the United States of L.A., Ben Folds has been to known to rock a suburb and a b*tch or two. Now we know where the the “Brick” and “Boxing” singer/songwriter will be rocking this May. Folds will be joined by Sarah Hicks and The Cincinnati Pops Orchestra Downtown Cincinnati’s historic Taft Theatre this May. Just in case you have never been to a Ben Folds show, and shame on you if that is the case, check out the videos below for a glimpse at the mad genius at work.

The Cincinnati Pops Orchestra is promoting Folds’ upcoming May 9 appearance via a press release that reads:

“He’s one of the most exceptional musicians of his generation, making headlines with everything from piano ballads to Dr. Dre covers. Ben Folds makes his Pops debut in this final concert of the Pops season, presenting his critically acclaimed Concerto for Piano and Orchestra, as well as showcasing his hit singles (characterized by his signature blend of rock, piano-pop and jazz) in orchestral light. Sarah Hicks returns to conduct this performance.”

Ben Folds joins Sarah Hicks and The Cincinnati Pops Orchestra on Tuesday, May 9, 2017 at 7:30 p.m.
