fun. – who recently adorned the cover of Billboard – will return to TV in late June, including a rare indoor acoustic rendition of “We Are Young” on the Thursday, June 21st installment of NBC’s TODAY and a Friday, June 22nd visit to NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. The appearances follow a prior array of TV performances, including CBS’ Late Show with David Letterman, TBS’ Conan, and VH1’s Big Morning Buzz Live.

The NYC-based band is currently in the midst of a worldwide headline tour, with most dates already long sold out. The trek’s current leg will culminate with a pair of instant hometown sell-outs at New York City’s Terminal 5 on June 16th and 17th, following a special performance at Bonnaroo on June 10th. After a brief respite, July will see fun. traveling to London, Scotland, and Australia for a series of headline shows and festival appearances. A new North American itinerary will begin August 2nd at Philadelphia’s River Stage at Great Plaza. Among the leg’s just-announced highlights is an August 19th date at The Wiltern in Los Angeles, added after shows slated for August 17th and 18th proved instant sell outs.

The tour will also feature a number of festival performances, including Lollapalooza (slated for Chicago’s Grant Park on August 4th), Osheaga Festival Music et Arts (set for Montreal’s Jean Drapeau Parc on August 3rd), and Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival (in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park on August 12th). The trek will conclude with two Canadian radio-sponsored festival appearances, X92.9’s “XFEST” at Calgary’s Fort Calgary on September 1st and SONiC 102.9’s annual “SONiC BOOM” at Edmonton’s Northlands Park on September 2nd.

As if all that weren’t enough, fun. is then set to embark on their first-ever full-scale European tour. The September/October schedule features headline dates and festival appearances across the Continent, including shows in the Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Luxembourg, Belgium, Ireland, France, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, Spain, Portugal, and the United Kingdom.

That's a pretty crazy schedule - after they catch their breaths, they should go on tour opening for The Beach Boys because WHY NOT.

Even if they never hit it big again after this album; they've come a long way. Plus "We are Young" royalties should keep them satisfied.

Yeah, that's just the North American dates.

Doesn't include July (shows in to London, Scotland, and Australia) or September on (fun. is then set to embark on their first-ever full-scale European tour. The September/October schedule features headline dates and festival appearances across the Continent, including shows in the Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Luxembourg, Belgium, Ireland, France, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, Spain, Portugal, and the United Kingdom.)

This information is in the text portion of the post.
