Ben Folds & Cake Tickets
Shoreline Amphitheatre | Mountain View, California
After last year's roaring success on the road, multi-talented singer-songwriter Ben Folds & '90s alt-rock sensations Cake have teamed up once more for a co-headlining tour that comes to Shoreline Amphitheatre on Friday 13th September 2019!
“We had so much fun with Ben last summer that we decided to do it again, this time in the West,” Cake frontman John McCrea said in a statement. Cake multi-instrumentalist Vince Difiore added: “Last year we had the great honor to tour with Ben, who inspired us with incredible musicianship and memorable songs. It was sad to end that tour, so now a great thrill to be anticipating another with the actual artistic advisor to the National Symphony Orchestra.”
