Ben Folds Five will reunite for a one-off show in two weeks for a performance of their final album, 1999's The Unauthorized Biography of Reinhold Messner. The concert — the first by the ironically named trio since disbanding in 2000 — will be held in at the UNC Memorial Hall in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, on September 18th as part of MySpace's new "Front to Back" series. In the vein of the All Tomorrow's Parties' "Don't Look Back" shows, the series will feature bands performing one of their albums in its entirety, with the shows later being posted on MySpace. "Of our three albums, this one brings back the most vivid memories," Folds said. "It was actually written to be one song of many movements, which is why there are motifs that appear throughout the album. That should make Reinhold a natural to be played front to back." Tickets go on sale Monday, September 8th, and all proceeds will benefit Operation Smile.
