Following the release of 'Lonely Avenue', his collaborative album with bestselling novelist Nick Hornby (High Fidelity, About A Boy), Ben Folds is set to visit Dublin for a live show in 2011.

Lonely Avenue includes the singles 'From Above' and 'Picture Window', as well as 'Saskia Hamilton', for which the UK's most popular You Tuber, Charlie McDonnell, created a video that has already attracted over 700,000 views in under a month. Expect these and plenty of older favourites when the North Carolina piano man plays Vicar St on February 18th, the first night of a new 14 date European tour.

Tickets priced €36.60 go on sale this Friday November 12th at 9am.
