Most Nights Summer Tour With Tegan and Sara
It may be tough to imagine an outdoor show under the stars when it’s 30 degrees out, but summer is just around the corner and fun. will be embarking on their Most Nights summer tour on July 6th in Toronto, ON. It’s a fitting kickoff city because fun.’s Canadian friends, Tegan and Sara, will be opening almost every show on the tour…
Tegan and Sara have been one of my favorite bands for a very long time. I remember when I discovered them - we were in LA recording Aim and Ignite and at that point everything I was listening to had been made before 1980. I was having a real “everything modern sucks” kind of chip on my shoulder moment. Discovering The Con not only changed my life the way a brilliant album does, it also renewed my faith in modern music. Tegan and Sara greatly impacted the way I think about writing and recording music at the moment that fun. was forming and for me, that makes it extra special that we get to tour together this summer.
Beyond my personal experience, their new album Heartthrob is absolutely incredible and the three of us are so thrilled to hear it live every night this summer!!!! - Jack
This may be the last North American tour of the Some Nights album cycle so the band is looking forward to seeing all of you. They’ll be announcing more shows next month so don’t worry if you don’t see a show near you:

“Wild Night”. That’s what Jack has been saying a lot in the emails we’ve all been replying to from friends, family, and colleagues who have sent their congrats in regards to our recent Grammy nomnom’s. Looking back, I’ve used a “Wild Night” or two myself. Truth is, it’s been a pretty wild year, and this is a pretty incredible way to cap it off. Like…crazy. Just like everything else that’s come our way in all our years of making music, we aren’t taking this for granted. And we certainly aren’t taking the support we’ve received from a lot of you through all these years for granted. Without you guys constantly lifting us up and carrying us through the rough nights we would never have been able to make “Some Nights”. Thank you guys for playing such a massive part in this “Wild Night”. Let’s have some more. - Nate
