    Just got this is my email from Ben Folds' official site...

    Live DVD Coming This Fall
    Stay tuned for details of the upcoming Fall release of a live DVD featuring Ben with the Western Australia Symphony Orchestra in front of sell-out crowds at Kings Park in Perth, Australia. Recorded during a two-night-stand in March of 2005, Ben, his piano and the 83-piece symphony perform for over 70 minutes!


    That's awesome!

    Yeah, this was unofficially announced when the shows were performed, a DVD release was pretty much guaranteed since the show was videotaped. Still, it's nice to see an official announcement (I got the e-mail, too). Speaking of classic Ben, I met him for the second time in Denver last week. Folds always puts on a great show, and Rufus Wainwright was terrific, too. Ben Lee was no slouch, either, but Rufus & Ben blew him away. I got to meet Jared and Lindsey for the first time, too. I got to meet Jim Bogios last time, he was Ben's touring drummer at the time and now he's a member of Counting Crows.

    PS: shouldn't this be in the music forum?

    I'm a huge Ben Folds fan and look forward to this DVD's release, but I must ask...will it be Region 1 (or at least all-region)?

    I just became a Ben Folds fan on Friday night when he played the Tonight Show (which I watched since Weird Al was set to play tambourine). Loved the song ("Landed") and ordered the CD from Amazon. Can't wait till it arrives.

    I'm still kicking myself for not going to the Rufus/Ben show when it was here a couple weeks ago. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I'll Netflix this one, never seen Ben live.

    One of my friends went to the Ben/Rufus show in Boston. Said Ben's set was waaaaay to short...


    And the DVD will be R1.
