FUN. Announce Auckland Show


FUN. Announce Auckland Show
Logan Campbell 13 March 2013


Having taken their quirky, melodic hooks and vintage pop to the top of the charts worldwide, FUN. bring their live show to Auckland for the first time.

The New York trio headline Auckland’s Logan Campbell Centre on 13 March 2013 with tickets going on sale Thursday 13 December.

The group’s second album Some Nights has delivered multi-platinum sales and the massive hit singles “We Are Young” and “Some Nights”.

The singles have reached #2 and #1 on the NZ Charts, with combined sales of nearly100,000 copies in this country.

Produced by hip-hop guru Jeff Bhasker (Kanye West, Beyonce, Jay-Z) Some Nights hurtled FUN.’s livewire indie power-pop tunes into a new direction that drew critics and fans onside.

Rolling Stone called the album “gregarious as heck. Queen-style rock theatrics are welded to Kanye West beats... ‘Some Nights’ is a hoot: huge-sounding, packed with tunes and not lacking in humour."

FUN. record on the Fueled By Ramen label and their success is driven by a passionate engagement with their fans. The group has also enjoyed wide exposure across TV and radio, featuring everywhere from the Superbowl to Glee.

"Some Nights is flawless. [...] They’re simultaneously almost Queen-esque in their bold, dramatic tones. It’s camp, but it’s shadowy. It’s epic, but it’s introvert. It’s highly peculiar, yet hugely commercial. It’s one big, beautiful oxymoron. And, in keeping with that theme, it's fun." - BBC
