What’s the best way to describe a Fun. show? Well, it’s a ton of fun. The band hit the House of Blues on Saturday night playing to a sold out crowd. After the recent success of their latest single, “We Are Young,” I was expecting the crowd to be unknowing of the band’s other music, but boy was I wrong. Every person in the crowd was singing along, to each and every word that came out of lead vocalist Nate Ruess’ mouth. Fun. thanked Boston for always supporting the band since day 1, especially since they have a lot of history in the area – guitarist Jack Antonoff’s parents met at BU and the band’s management and booking agent are both located in Massachusetts.
The 11-song set, a perfect mixture of new and old songs, flew by and left the crowd chanting for more. Not before long, Fun. came out to perform an encore with “Some Nights” and “Take Your Time,” bringing the set total to 13 songs. This show was definitely one of the best I’ve seen all year, if not the best so far. The spectacular musicianship of Ruess, Antonoff, and Andrew Dost on keys, is not left unnoticed during their live performances.
