Grammy Winners Fun. Coming to Merriweather in Columbia
Also, Grammy nominees The Lumineers will play the following weekend.
Hot off their Best New Artist win at the Grammy Awards on Sunday night, Fun. recently announced a live performance July 20 at Merriweather Post Pavilion.
The indie rock band from New York City also won the Song of the Year Grammy for their catchy hit "We Are Young."
At the Grammys, Fun.'s Nate Ruess, 30, joked, "I don't know what I was thinking writing the chorus for this song. If this is in HD, everybody can see our faces, and we are not very young," as the band accepted the award for Song of the Year.
Tickets for Fun. go on sale on Friday at 10 a.m. on Ticketfly. Tickets are $35 - $45.
Also scheduling a summer concert at Merriweather this year is The Lumineers, a folk band out of Denver, that broke out in 2012 with their self-titled album featuring the song "Ho Hey."
The Lumineers were nominated for Best New Artist and Best Americana Album at the Grammys, but lost. They are scheduled to play Merriweather on July 26. Tickets for The Lumineers are on sale on Ticketfly for $35 - $45.
