Ben Folds and Cake announce co-headlining summer tour

Last August, alternative rock stalwarts Cake and Ben Folds joined forces for a co-headlining tour. The trek took them along the East Coast (including a stellar stop in New York) and as far west as Wisconsin. This summer, they’re getting back together for another summer road trip, this time with their sights set on the Pacific Coast.

The 11-date tour launches in Bonner, Montana on September 5th. After that, Folds and Cake will makes stops in Redmond, Washington; Nampa, Idaho; Las Vegas, Nevada; and four Californian cities. Things wrap up on the 19th in Grand Prairie, Texas. As with last year, Tall Heights will join the bands as direct support.

Fans who purchase VIP tickets will get entrance to a Meet & Greet, Q&A, and masterclass with Folds, during which he’ll sign copies of his memoir, A Dream About Lightning Bugs. Find VIP details at Folds’ site.

Prior to linking up with his old tourmates, Folds will take part in another co-headlining tour, this one with Violent Femmes.  Cake have their own run of shows lined up for the rest of the year, so find both bands’ itineraries below. Get tickets to any of their dates here and here, respectively.

Cake recently released their first new song in seven years, “Sinking Ship”. Folds hasn’t recorded a solo album since 2008’s Way to Normal, though he teamed with yMusic in 2015 for the collaborative So There. You can grab vinyl from Folds here and Cake here.
