Ben Folds and Violent Femmes are joining up and taking to the road this year.

The co-headlining tour is headed to Pittsburgh with a stop at Stage AE on Aug. 6.

Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m.; the venue and the bands are also offering presale ticket chances starting Tuesday. General admission tickets are $35 ($40 day of the show) and premium seat tickets are priced at $99.

Piano rocker Ben Folds is best known for hits like “Brick,” “Rockin’ in the Suburbs,” “You Don’t Know Me” and “Still Fighting It.” His new memoir, “A Dream About Lightning Bugs. A Life Of Music And Cheap Lessons,” is set to be released in July.

Violent Femmes returned after an absence with their first album in 15 years, “We Can Do Anything.” The band is best known for its early 1980s anthem, “Blister in the Sun.”

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
