Fort Worth Is the Luckiest

If you watched the one-night-only special of The Sing-Off this season, respond by modulating a quick pop vocal. Now, if you watched and — like us — were also impressed by that dude from Fall Out Boy despite missing Ben Folds on the judging panel (and not even 35 inane side comments from Nick Lachey could distract), show your adoration in person this Saturday. Everyone's favorite Professor Pop will play with the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra in his own one-night-only performance. No, it’s not nationally televised and Shawn Stockman isn’t on the roster, but you can still swoon over Folds’ incredible key-pounding and songwriting skills. This tour of his is why he missed The Sing-Off this time around. He'll bring out the ultimate faves — everyone in the room is sure to cry when they hear “Brick” — but we’re really stoked to see and hear him perform a new concerto. Now if we could just get an FWSO-backed version of “Jackson Cannery.” Folds takes the stage at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Bass Performance Hall (525 Commerce St., Fort Worth). Tickets are $50-$110. Visit
Sat., Jan. 3, 7:30 p.m., 2015
