CAKE & BEN FOLDS UNITE FOR SUMMER TOUR

CAKE and Ben Folds have announced the details of a very special summer co-headline tour, set to get underway Monday, August 13 at Boston, MA’s Blue Hills Bank Pavilion and then travel through the month. Support throughout comes from special guest Tall Heights. Artist pre-sales are available now. All remaining tickets will be released to the general public on Wednesday, April 5 at 10 am (local). VIP Packages will also be available for select dates. For complete details and ticket availability, please see www.cakemusic.com/tourand www.benfolds.com/tour-dates.

“CAKE — my rough contemporaries, comrades and heroes — to me, they make universal, poetic, identifiable music with a groove. I’ve learned a lot from these guys and I’m proud as punch to be on tour with them this summer,” says Folds. “I’m telling my friends to get there early enough for Tall Heights – a great addition to this bill.”

“We are very much looking forward to touring with Ben Folds,” says CAKE’s John McCrea. “In a culture often conflicted about its relationship to melody, and songwriting generally, Ben continues unapologetically to provide melodic clarity and musicality.  I am also looking forward to hearing Tall Heights. This co-headline line up seems like a good combination of musical styles-disparate but not antithetical to each other-and it should be a solid evening of music.”

“Ben Folds has been a friend to us, a tour partner in the past, and for a long time we have had great respect for him,” says CAKE’s Vincent DiFiore. “CAKE is looking forward to expressing our identity through music this summer, and the chemistry of our evening together with Ben and his band will be an inspiring jolt for us and the audience.”
