fun.'s week will end this Friday night at the Tabernacle in Atlanta playing to a sell-out crowd. The concert will feature music from both fun.'s two studio albums including the Grammy nominated "Some Nights", fun.'s second studio album. fun. will be supported by Andrew McMahon.
"Some Nights" has been a tremendous commercial success. The three singles off the CD, the title track, "Carry On," and "We Are Young," have helped to bring fun. into the mainstream, leading the band to an appearance on "SNL" and a string of sell out concerts.
