Fun. Announce New 2013 Tour Dates
Fun.‘s lengthy concert tour just got even longer with the announcement of additional U.S. dates in early 2013.
The new list of shows begins with a date in St. Paul, Minnesota on Jan. 23 and continues through Feb. 16 in Nashville. The slate of concerts includes a break between Feb. 8-11 that will allow the group to attend the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on Feb. 10 if, as expected, the guys get nominated for Best New Artist or for their hits ‘We Are Young’ and ‘Some Nights.’
Fan club members can pick up tickets for the new shows now via presale. Tickets for the general public go on sale this Friday, Oct. 26. Following the new U.S. dates, the group heads to Australia and then to Europe through April, so they’re not going to get much of a break over the next six months.
Fun. already have a sold-out series of shows coming up in November, along with an appearance on ‘Saturday Night Live’ on Nov. 3 and a gig at the MTV Europe Music Awards on Nov. 11. Nate Ruess and his bandmates are now hoping to follow up the success of their two previous ‘Some Nights’ singles with the release of ‘Carry On.’ The band just released a full-length video for the song today, and you can check it out below.
