    Ben Folds to Bring "Lonely Avenue" Tour to Europe in February, March

    Ben Folds, currently in the midst of his fall US tour, is now set to tour Europe in February and March 2011 in support of his latest album, the acclaimed Lonely Avenue, a collaboration between him and bestselling novelist Nick Hornby, which was released on Nonesuch Records in September. The 14-date tour begins in Dublin on February 18 and includes concerts in the UK, Germany, Denmark, Austria, and Holland. Tickets go on sale to the general public this Friday, November 12. Members of the Ben Folds Fan Club will have advance access to pre-sale tickets and ticket bundle opportunities starting at 2 PM GMT on Wednesday, November 10.

    The A.V. Club Chicago, reviewing last weekend's tour opener at The Riviera, prefaces by explaining that "Mr. Folds has the chops to put on a very satisfying show" and goes on to say that "the show was a piano-pounding delight." The Columbus Dispatch, reviewing last night's show at the LC Pavilion, says that with Folds and Hornby together on Lonely Avenue, "the results are always fascinating and often fabulous."

    Folds discusses the project, his songwriting technique, and his recent dinner with Randy Newman, among other things, with American Songwriter magazine in a Q&A you can read at americansongwriter.com.

    Both collaborators recently spoke with CNN about their collaboration. You can watch the interview in the video below:
