On June 27, Fun the band joins up with Tegan and Sarah at Summerfest 2013. With their popularity rising, Fun is traveling across Europe this spring. Their tour starts April 10, with a show in Utrecht. Their first date on their North American leg of the tour is at our very own Marcus Amphitheater. Well, they do have a “one off” show in Boston on May 25, but we can’t call that the start of their American tour, because they are right back over to Europe for nine more shows. These guys will be busy criss-crossing the globe until late October. A quick scan of their European dates in April reveals that the band is selling out most venues.
The hit song Fun is touring on is called We Are Young. All it took was a big name producer to lay hands on the tune, a popular TV show play it, and for hundreds of millions of football fans to hear the song during a commercial, and the rest is history. Would Fun be anywhere without the magical touch of Jeffrey Bhasker? It seems that most pop bands need some sort of influential producer or lucky break like a commercial deal to get their foot in the door. That’s not to say that the band didn’t try their best to hit the big time on their own. They just got lucky three times over.
Tegan And Sarah Open For Fun
Tegan and Sara have been performing all over the world for the past 18 years. Yes, that means the twins were belting out songs at a very youthful age. They managed to take advantage of their high school recording equipment to create some pretty fun music. Seven albums later, and they are still going strong. Their new song Closer charted very high, right out of the box. It’s hard to find copies of their very early work titled, Under Feet Like Ours. That disk was released fourteen years ago on a small label.
