A buddy of mine treated me to the show. I am certainly a Ben Folds Five fan, but I had not yet had a chance to hear any of his solo work. Phenomenal concert. It's rare that a "pop" artist is such a virtuoso on their instrument, but Ben's command of the piano cannot be understated. He performed masterfully during a very high energy show. Not to be without his comfort of backup harmonies or horns, before any song that called for it, Ben conducted the audience on how to perform the harmonies or horn parts. After one quick practice he performed the song, prompting the crowd when to perform their duties. Unbelievably, it actually sounded good. Ben performed many tracks from his solo CD, along with old BFF favorites, and a couple of covers, including the "Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head" and George Michael's "Careless Whisper". Great show. I highly recommend checking Ben Folds out if you're in the area. He has great stage presence, an awesome sense of humor, phenemonal skills and great melodies.
