Ben Folds and Counting Crows / December UK Tour

By on Monday, 21st July 2008 at 7:09 pm

PLEASE NOTE: These dates have been postponed until May 2009 – full details here

Counting Crows have unfortunately announced an arena tour for December. Usually this would mean that they are hogging the arenas so decent bands can’t play there, however this time I’ll forgive them as they’re also taking the amazing Ben Folds with them. I may be going to a few of them just for the fact that Ben is a genius in my eyes, so be sure to get your tickets when they go on sale – you’ll even get an early night if you just catch Ben!

Tickets go on sale tomorrow (Tuesday 22nd July) according to See Tickets, or on Friday (25th July) according to NME. So I don’t know when they go on sale, but either way catch Counting Crows and Ben Folds at the below dates:

Tuesday 2nd December – Newcastle Arena
Thursday 4th December – Nottingham Arena
Friday 5th December – London Wembley Arena
Sunday 7th December – Manchester MEN Arena
Monday 8th December – Cardiff International Arena
Wednesday 10th December – Bournemouth BIC
Thursday 11th December – Brighton Centre
Saturday 13th December – Birmingham NEC Arena
Sunday 14th December – Sheffield Arena
Thursday 18th December – Glasgow SECC

HEY! Counting Crows are awesome! What are you talking about? Hogging the arena’s so DECENT bands can’t get in! Outrageous!

Have you actually EVER seen them live?

I’ll be honest, I haven’t seen them before, no.

They’ve just always struck me as quite a boring band, though I guess I will get a chance to see them when I make it to either the NEC or Wembley shows!

you’d have to be a slave to the wage to agree with what they’ve done, cancelling tickets “for the fans” in the face of the “credit crunch” when they didnt have a problem with selling tickets-which leaves me to belive there not gonna shift enough over priced merch .

great band-morals of an obese worthog.

ooh whats that i hear??? the tapping of all the do-gooders ready to put me in my place-away you go then…
