Ben Folds Five @ Rock City

  • Nov 24, 2012 · 6:00 PM
  • Rock City

My head just about exploded from excitement when I saw on Rock City's twitter feed that not only have Ben Folds Five reformed, but also they will be playing Rock City this November. Ben Folds is one of the most talented musicians in my music collection, I've been a fan for at least 15 years but have never seen him perform live on his own nor with the band.

Tickets go on sale at 10am Friday 4th May. More details on Rock City's website:

Doors at 6.30pm (Saturday gigs are always early so they can clear the floor for the club after). Suggest we meet in Spanky Van Dyke's at 6pm for a quick drink before going round the corner for the gig.

Update: Direct from Rock City's website, tickets are £30.20 each plus a £1.75 transaction fee per order.

    Thank you everyone, nice to meet a few of you in the pub beforehand. Sorry I couldn't stay with you down on the dance floor, I got a bit overheated in the crowd. Stayed at the back near the exit just incase I passed out again. Sorry if I got anyone else soaked in cranberry juice on my way to the floor. Seems pregnancy & gigs don't always mix well. x

      Glad to hear you're OK! I hadn't realised it was you who'd fallen down until after your friends had already assisted you out of the crowd. It does get pretty warm in there with all those people! Hope you enjoyed the gig anyway :)

    Hi everyone hope you enjoyed the show and that everyone's ok - would have caught up with you afterwards but forgot about rock city's infamous cloak room queues.

    • Sarah

      Yep, the queue was typical craziness. I basically had to push in half way down because I physically couldn't get to the end of the queue! Had a great time though, hope you enjoyed it too :)

    so excited, these guys are from my hometown and are a major part of my teenage soundtrack! never been to a show with this meetup group but thought it might be fun to hook up with some others in the know. how do you find each other, do you usually meet up beforehand or something? thanks - Kezia

      Hi Kezia, welcome to the group! As the event description says above, we'll be meeting in Spanky Van Dyke's at 6pm. It's a pub just round the corner from Rock City, on Goldsmith Street. My mobile number is listed above as well, under the venue details, so you can text/call me if you can't find us. See you on Saturday!

      thanks, Sarah! and sorry for not actually reading the information that was right in front of me, clearly too distracted by the prospect of seeing the band. see you Saturday!
