Ben Folds, Rufus Wainwright to Tour

Ben Folds, Rufus Wainwright, and Ben Lee, three of pop music's oddest men, are joining forces for the "Odd Men Out" tour this August. Folds and Wainwright will co-headline, each with his own band. The two will alternate closing each night, with Lee opening each gig.

This tour is hardly a haphazard match, as the three men have a history with each other. Folds and Wainwright have toured together in the past, while Folds and Lee have worked together as part of the coincidental geek experiment the Bens (along with Ben Kweller). With their mutual chumminess, it'd be surprising if they didn't play at least a few songs together.

At the moment, there are approximately three weeks of shows announced, although Ben Folds' site insists that more will be added.

You know what? It's totally doable. I may be in Hawaii for work (I know, rough job), but if I don't go, I say that we go on a Whiney Boy World Tour (or at least a two-country tour :) ).

I blame Jen for my attachment to whiney boy singers. Please pick me up on the way.
