Fun Comes To Summerfest 2013 | Tegan and Sara Share Bill That Night

Fun Summerfest 2013
Fun will play the Marcus Amphitheater on June 27.  Last year, this band was a Miller Lite stage headliner.  This time, they hope to fill the 20,000 seat Marcus.  In order to do that, Tegan and Sara will open the show.  Together, these bands make up what could certainly be called "Indie Night" at the Lakefront.  What's their hit song you say?  It's a little number titled "We Are Young." Funny that their lead singer is pushing 32.  That's not Justin Bieber "young."  In fact, the entire band is either about to turn 30, or have pushed past it.  No matter, the band is literally fun to watch.

Tegan And Sara On Tour With Fun

Tegan and Sara have been in the music business for 13 years now.  They started performing while in high school, and got picked up by a small label in 2000.  Their third effort, titled If It Was Like You, sold just under 20,000 copies, and their forth disk went Gold.  Since then, the band has managed to grab a top ten spot on the Canadian charts over the past three years.  Their latest work, Heartthrob has gone number one on the American "Alternative" charts, along with the US "Rock" charts.  This might be the big one for Tegan and Sara.  The disk has been out for just seven weeks, and will most likely break their current sales record. Perhaps it's the pop flavor of this disk that is giving sales a huge boost.
