Ben Folds is going on what is being called the Paper Airplane Request Tour this fall which, as it sounds encourages fans to suggest songs on paper airplanes and launch them towards the stage. Says Ben:

Taking paper airplane requests from fans is fun, and gives everyone in the room a chance to request what they'd like to hear. The first time I brought up paper airplane requests was when I tweeted before a show: 'If you have a song you want me to play, then write it down on a piece of paper and launch it as a paper airplane after I give the countdown.' The response was incredible, with waves of paper airplanes flying from the audience on to the stage right on cue."

The tour includes a NYC stop at Kings Theatre on October 21. Tickets for that show go on various presales starting today at 10 AM and go on sale to the general public on Friday, June 16 at 10 AM.
