The rich music history in the Shreveport area sometimes draws in performances that a market this size probably shouldn't have. Why do musicians like Robert Plant, Dave Grohl, Jack White, and Paul McCartney find their way to the Shreveport area? Often its to explore the history of music in our area.

Legends like Lead Belly, Elvis Pressley, Sam Cooke, Hank Williams, Tillman Franks, James Burton, Faron Young, and many more have deep ties to the Shreveport area. We regularly hear from artists who come to perform here because of those ties.

As of right now, we're not sure if that's why Ben Folds has added Shreveport to his Paper Airplane Request Tour, but he has.

The platinum selling musician has announced he will be in Shreveport on Sunday, December 15th...but he hasn't said where. Making this a bit of a mystery.

Now, Shreveport is limited in the type of venues that could host a show like this. So you can probably take an educated guess at where the show will be held, but until we're officially told, it remains a mystery.

This particular tour is actually an incredible experience waiting to happen.

You would probably expect Ben Folds to perform a set list full of his hits from Ben Folds Five, his solo work, and a couple fun cover songs. But on the Paper Airplane Request Tour, the audience gets to dictate the night. The way this tour operates is that crowd members will be able to throw requests to the stage in the form of paper airplanes.

This is going to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience in Shreveport. So keep an eye out for more details on this mystery show, because you won't want to miss it.
