Lonely Avenue, the collaboration between piano man Ben Folds and “High Fidelity” author Nick Hornby, hits stores tomorrow, and now Folds has announced a US tour in support of the album starting in November.
The tour kicks off in Chicago and concludes with a Thanksgiving weekend homecoming performance at Nashville’s Tennessee Performing Arts Center to benefit the Nashville Symphony, whose concert hall was hit with $40 million in damages at the hands of floodwaters in May.
