Ben Folds reunites with CAKE for co-headline tour

The co-headline tour will be making stops at venues across the West Coast including Los Angeles, CA’s Greek Theater, Mountainview, CA’s Shoreline Amphitheater and more.

“CAKE are masters, and they happen to be my friends,” says Folds. “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.”
