Ben Folds: A Dream About Lightning Bugs

Tickets

$40 - $45 available through Brisbane Powerhouse



Celebrated American singer-songwriter and front-man of the alternative rock band Ben Folds Five is touring Australia with his new memoir and will be stopping in at Brisbane Powerhouse for a special in-conversation with Myf Warhurst.

Ben Folds sits down to offer his reflections on art, life and music in this special in-conversation event that is as nuanced, witty and relatable as his cult-classic songs.

Sharing stories from his book, A Dream About Lightning Bugs, Ben opens up about finding his voice as a musician, becoming a rock anti-hero and hauling a baby grand piano around for every performance. From growing up in working class North Carolina, to painful life lessons learned the hard way, he also ruminates on creativity in the digital age, the absurdity of life on the road and the challenges of sustaining a multi-decade career in the music business.

Don’t miss this chance to hear Ben Folds in conversation with Myf Warhurst at Brisbane Powerhouse, part of the Writers+Ideas series.

Writers+Ideas is supported by EY and O’Neill Architecture
