Why See Boston Pops - Ben Folds?

Ben Folds returns to the Pops this May!

Now touring across the country, the talented singer-songwriter/front-man of Ben Folds Five will be joining the Boston Pops in May as part of their anticipated 2017 spring season! In what will be his first performance with the Pops since 2012, he will play his biggest hits, and provide Boston with their own premiere of his critically acclaimed Concerto for Piano and Orchestra. A prodigious genre-blending musician in rock, power pop, jazz fusion, classical and cabaret, expect a lively concert led by Pops conductor Keith Lockhart.

The front man of his self-named band, rock artist and producer Ben Folds continues to work with some of the most eclectic names in music and entertainment (remember his Common People cover that featured William Shatner and Bill Clinton?), as well as pushing the envelope on alt-rock ever further. A self-confessed enigma, he prefers to stay out of the limelight except when touring, but can easily claim credit for some of music's most unlikely trends.
