Ben Folds Five hasn’t played Atlanta since 1999, and fans hoping to see them this Friday will have to wait a little longer.
The band is postponing its Chastain Park Amphitheatre date until the fall because, said Folds in a statement, “We’re still recording the new album and so not ready to perform those songs live yet.”
The new reunion album, set for release in September, is the first offering from BFF since 1999, a year before the trio broke up.
A new date has not been set, but the group plans to embark on a full fall tour, including Atlanta.
Refunds will be available at point of purchase.
