Following the enormous success of their co-headlining tour last summer, which Pollstar noted as one of the highest grossing co-headline tours of summer 2018, Bend Folds and CAKE are teaming up again for a round of shows throughout September 2019.
Ben Folds and CAKE will open up their tour with a performance at Bonner, MT’s KettleHouse Amphitheater on September 5th, followed by stops at Redmond, WA’s Marymoor Park (9/6); Troutdale, OR’s McMenamins Edgefield Amphitheater (9/7); Nampa, ID’s Idaho Center Amphitheater (9/8); Las Vegas, NV’s The Joint/Hard Rock Hotel & Casino (9/10); Sacramento, CA’s Golden 1 Center (9/11); Mountain View, CA’s Shoreline Amphitheatre (9/13); Irvine, CA’s FivePoint Amphitheatre (9/14); Los Angeles, CA’s Greek Theatre (9/15); Austin, TX’s Austin360 Amphitheater (9/18); and a tour-closing performance at Grand Prairie, TX’s The Theatre at Grand Prairie on September 19th.
Folds explains in a press release, “CAKE are masters, and they happen to be my friends. “So, yes, let’s do this!”
“We had so much fun with Ben last summer that we decided to do it again, this time in the west,” says CAKE’s frontman John McCrea. CAKE’s multi-instrumentalist and backing vocalist Vince DiFiore adds, “Last year we had the great honor to tour with Ben, who inspired us with incredible musicianship and memorable songs. It was sad to end that tour, so now a great thrill to be anticipating another with the actual artistic advisor to the National Symphony Orchestra.”
Tickets for the upcoming co-headlining tour go on sale this Friday, April 19th.
